Kindhearted policeman donates P50k wedding fund for Kalinga people

A story behind a kindhearted young policeman who instead of using 50,000 pesos of their proposed wedding they opt to donate the said amount to the "Adopt a family or Rectang Bayanihan" fund for the people of upper Kalinga.

Wedding come once in a life time between two lovers, so the would be couple will plan wittily to have memorable and successful celebration of their love. Patrolman John Cleveland A Pannogan and Ms Nannette C. Velasco scheduled their wedding ceremony this coming June but due to this COVID-19 pandemic, the would be couple cancel the said wedding and the money supposed to be used or alloted to was voluntarily and full heartedly donated to the " Adopt a family" fund.

The 2nd Kalinga Provincial Mobile Force Company under the leadership of PLTCOL IGAN P BALLANGAN salute and hailed this young police officer for his generosity.

We will encouraged other constituents who have more in life to share God's blessings to help those in need during crisis.

Ollasic, Guyao, Guiwanas and Balinte

Four Kalinga maingor (warriors) photographed at the Baguio Carnival and Exposition of 1949.

All of these Kalinga men fought during the Japanese occupation and were photographed in their best durao (headdress) and baag (loincloth) for the Exposition.

Their tattoos (batek), which were badges of honor back home, were a big draw since most visitors had never seen tattooed warriors with spears (balbeg) before.

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.
