88-year-old Lola in Mayoyao, Ifugao receives financial help from the DSWD

88-year old Mary P. Monchiguing from Mayoyao, Ifugao received the financial assistance from DSWD's Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation as on the the Government's Social Amelioration Program.

Lola Mary is living with her daughter whose livelihood was affected by the enhanced community quarantine.

Her daughter heartily expressed gratitude now that they no longer have to worry over money to purchase her mother's maintenance medications. Accordingly, they will also use the subsidy in buying basic commodities to get through the economic consequences of the COVID 19 crisis.

What is "UBBU" in Ifugao?

In the central part of Ifugao where I was born and raised, I have witnessed a lot of times what they call "ubbu".

It is a term used to describe a traditional Ifugao practice, where a person calls the help of other folks to be part of a work (usually in their ricefields). In return, the person who called for help must repay it with work, commensurate to the number of days the person worked for him/her.

They don't use money to pay workers, but they use work to barter for work.

When these folks gather to work, it's a time for a good fellowship, and in the olden times, it is used to learn their traditional hymn of "Hudhud" for the ladies.

It is still very much alive in my native barangay. But in many parts of Ifugao, "ubbu or ub-ubbu" is becoming strange; just a part of our rich history.

What can the new generation of the "real sons and daughters of Ifugao" do?

This is the Chaya cluster of the breathtaking Mayoyao Rice Terraces in Mayoyao, Ifugao, photographed from the Mt. Nagchajan Viewpoint, also in the same town. It is part of the Rice Terraces of the Philippine Cordilleras inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 (along with those in Batad and Bangaan in Banaue, Hungduan, and Nagacadan in Kiangan, all located in the province of Ifugao).

These payew ('rice terraces' in Henanga, the language of the Majawjaw or Mayoyao people) witnessed the victory of our lolo and lola beteranos in the last World War II battle fought in the Philippines, exactly 75 years ago on this day. The capture of Mayoyao defense line of Imperial Japanese Army Commander Tomoyuki Yamashita resulted in the eventual surrender of the Japanese in the Philippines. In this event, Ifugao warriors fought together with fellow Filipinos from other provinces, as well as the American soldiers.

This coming 3 September 2020, the grateful Filipino people will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in the Philippines.

The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) commemorated the Victory at Mayoyao with a historical marker installed at the Mt. Nagchajan.
