LGU of Tagum offers Pamaskong Handog to IPs

OVER 900 Indigenous Peoples’ faces were adorned with warm smiles as they received gift packages from the City Government of Tagum last December 22, 2016 in Tagum City Trade and Cultural Center.

“Malipayon kaayo ko kay tibuok kong kinabuhi karon ra ni nahitabo. Manghinaot unta ko na makabalik mi diri. Wala gyud gipili niya nga tao nga tabangan, kami gihalagahan niya paghatag. Malipay gyud mi magluygsong sa tagum kaywala gyud mi pasagdi,” said Ata Manobo Elsa Cois from Talaingod.

Participating IPs from Ata Manobo, Talaingod, Langilan, Dibabawon, and Matigsalog also took part in the numerous fun games prepared by the LGU.

“Giaccomodate gyud diri sa Tagum ang mga kaigsuunan namo nga lumad ug matud pa nila, pirting pasalamat gyud nila na makauli sila sa ilang lugar na malipayon sila kay aduna silay mabitbit,” said Datu Carlito Alejo.

This event in line with the Culture and Social Services component of the EAGLE WINGS Program, the administration’s ten-point agenda.

Mayor Allan Rellon said that they are always welcome in the city during the holidays and that this would certainly not be the first and last Pamaskong Handong for them. MJ de Castro/CIO Tagum
