Date: May 6, 2022
In celebration of National Heritage Month (NHM), the #NationalMuseumPH Cordillera in Kiangan, Ifugao in collaboration with the National Museum Gender and Development Focal Point System (NM GAD-FPS), will be conducting a lecture and demonstration on Tuknul ya Kuttilap: Traditional Basketry and Embroidery on May 6, 2022 at the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office grounds in Poblacion, Kiangan, Ifugao.
Aligned with the theme, “Pamanang Lokal: Binhi ng Kultura”, this activity aims to awaken community appreciation of local heritage and ensure its transmission to the young through lecture and demonstration. It primarily aims to transmit indigenous knowledge and skills by training more students, teachers and women on traditional embroidery and basketry which are among the intangible cultural heritage that need to be sustained as alternative source of income even during community lockdowns.
Mrs. Maribelle B. Bongtiwon and Mr. Orlando Babbayung, culture bearers of tuknul and Mrs. Andifiore P. Torres and Mrs. Roseville Umli on kuttilap, will be the resource persons on the said crafts. They will show how the materials are prepared, what tools are needed and the basic steps in tuknul and kuttilap. Finished products will be exhibited during the activity as guide and inspiration for the participants. Selected students, teachers, and women community representatives will be the participants.
The activity will be conducted for free on site and video-documented. The documentary will be posted in the NM Cordillera Rice Terraces Site Museum Facebook page and will also be played in the activity area of the museum.
