Sagada’s Begnas Ritual


Begnas Ritual in Sagada, Mountain Province ???????????????????????????????

Begnas in Kankanaey language means thanksgiving. The ritual is participated by all men in the village: children, youth, fathers and elders.

From their own homes, they walk through the papayew (rice terraces) as well as pine forests chanting and eventually converging at the dap-ay, the traditional political, economic and cultural center of indigenous peoples in Cordillera Region.

Ritual witnessed in Sagada, Mountain Province last March 23, 2013.
