Lumadnong Dula Tribal Games 2014



Great fun with the Lumads of Davao City! Davao City is so big it’s practically a province in itself, with large swathes of hard-to-reach highland areas. It was great to have Davao’s original people come downtown for a day of celebrating another side of their culture. Many of these games celebrate and serve to educate for their close-to-the-land lifestyle : a timed competition of pounding and winnowing rice, contests of marksmanship with bow and blowgun and throwing a spear at a coconut to simulate a boar hunt. Who’d have thought rice winnowing could be a competitive game? Well it worked, and it was very photogenic too!
