“We need help documenting the process,” Tecson said.

Tecson said the local government is partnering with architecture schools and organizations for the project.

The tribal village is one of the attractions of the Kadayawan Festival, which is slated on the second to third weeks of August.

This week, the private sector partners of the government is set to meet among themselves to update their preparations for the festival.

The organizers are expected to decide this week the total budget for this year’s celebration.
