Tribu K’Mindanawan Cultural Village, Davao
Part 10 of a series
Time check: 4:47pm
After touring around the Davao Crocodile Park, it suddenly rained so I had no choice but to wait at the canteen ’til the rain stopped.
Not more than 10 minutes later, the rain stopped, rejoice! Part of the P150 entrance fee I paid at the Davao Crocodile Park was an entry to Tribu K’Mindanawan Culture Village so I decided to check it out.
Tribu K’ Mindanawan is a cultural village that showcases the richness of the indigenous people, who lived and became a part of the land of Promise – Mindanao. The village is just a few steps away from the Davao Crocodile Park.
Gumne, the B’laan Chieftain’s House; Togan, the K’Gan Chieftain’s House
Bale, Bagobo-Tagabawa Traditional House; Bakag, Obo-Manobo Farm House
Turogan, where the Datu of the Maranao tribe resides; Gono Taug’na, traditional T’Boli house
The Bantawan or Amphitheater
A house which I failed to identify, tsk.
Uyaanan, Mansaka Traditional House
Bal’lay, Mandaya Traditional House; Tog’gan, Manguangan Traditional House
Bebalay Balyan, Subanen Shaman’s House; Binotok, Ata Manobo Traditional House
Those houses are built by authentic indigenous people from Mindanao. And I was surprised that there are actually real indigenous people inside some of the houses! They have a cultural presentation, with a fire show, on weekends.
Tribu K’Mindanawan is located just beside the Davao River and is covered by hundreds of tall bamboo trees so aside from getting to know at least a dozen of indigenous communities in Mindanao, you’ll get to feel nature as well.
