Pasko Fiesta to highlight 11 tribes of Davao city

DAVAO City — The culture of the city’s 11 tribes will be among the new highlights of this year’s Pasko Fiesta celebration.

Orly Escarilla, head of the committee on holiday events, said one of the additional activities this year is the tribes’ display of cuisine.

The “Kan-anan sa Tribu” will be held at the Tribal Village in Magsaysay Park where life-size replicas of their traditional houses are currently on display.

The indigenous people’s village was put up for the Kadayawan Festival held in August this year

Escarilla said the showcase and selling of different foods and delicacies of the tribes would be on Dec. 15 to 30.

“This will give people the opportunity to taste the delicacies of the different tribes in Davao,” Escarila said in an interview.

This would also enable tribal groups to profit which they could use for the maintenance of the village, Escarilla added.

The city government has allotted a total of P13 million for this year’s Pasko Fiesta, slightly higher than last year’s budget. However, Escarilla said the said amount is still subject to City Mayor Sara Duterte’s approval. (
