KADAYAWAN 2013 SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES


KADAYAWAN 2013 SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES

Kadayawan Festival is a week long thanksgiving celebration in Davao. And according to the people in Davao the term "Kadayawan" is derived from the Mandaya word “madayaw”, which means a warm and friendly greeting used to explain a thing that is valuable, superior, beautiful, good, or profitable.

Allegedly, long time ago, Davao’s ethnic tribes residing at the foot of Mount Apo would converge during a bountiful harvest. This ritual serves as their thanksgiving to the gods particularly to the “Manama” (the Supreme Being).

Various farming implements, fruits, flowers, vegetables, rice and corn grains were displayed on mats as villagers give their respect and thanks for the year's abundance. Singing, dancing and offerings to their divine protectors are the highlights of this ritual.
