July 15, a Monday, has been declared as a special non-working day in the Cordillera region. In a proclamation dated July 4, Malacanang made the declaration through Executive Secretary Salvador C. Medialdea by authority of President Rodrigo Duterte.

The provided date marks the 32nd founding anniversary of the Cordillera Administrative Region. "It is but fitting and proper that the people of the CAR be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies", the document reads.

You can read the full document here at the Official Gazette website.

The Cordillera Administrative Region was officially created on July 15, 1987 through an executive order issued by then President Corazon C. Aquino. The region is currently comprised of six provinces. These are Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, and Mountain Province.

The Kalinga People of the Cordilleras, Ethnic Group in Philippines

Due to the mountainous terrain and warrior-culture of the people, the Kalinga were able to preserve their culture despite centuries of occupation in the lowlands by the Spaniards, Americans, and the Japanese.

The Kalinga people are highlanders and the most extensive rice farmers of the Cordillera peoples, having been blessed with some of the most suitable land for both wet and dry rice farming. Like the Ifugao, the Kalinga are prolific terrace builders. The Kalinga are also skilled craftsmen, well-versed in basketry, loom weaving, metalsmithing, and pottery, the last centred in the lower Chico River Valley.

On February 22, 2019, the Department of Tourism announced the bid of Digdiga Ni Tupayya, a Kalinga courtship dance, to be included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.
