Museo Kordilyera gives Baguio tourism an educational facet

The Museo Kordilyera of the University of the Philippines-Baguio has added an educational facet to the tourism experience in Baguio City.

Along with the opening of Panagbenga 2018 and city-wide artistic and cultural activities in celebration of Baguio as a creative city, the museum launched its second exhibit entitled, “Feasts of Merit,” which will run until February next year.

“Feasts of Merit” demonstrates the industry and the desire of the Cordillera people to give back to the community. It focuses on exploring the connection between wealth, status, and feasting in the Cordillera.

UP-Baguio Chancellor Raymundo Rovillos said that the exhibit is a result of collective faculty research on three feastings in the Cordillera.

The Hongan di Kadangyan of the Ifugaos is the center piece of the exhibit while the Bontoc Chono and Ibaloi Peshit serve as supplement exhibits.

The exhibit “serves as a platform for discussion of issues related to interpretation of culture and the transformations that are now rapidly changing the culture of the Cordillera,” said Museo Kordilyera Director Analyn Salvador-Amores during the launching.

Department of Tourism Cordillera Regional Director Marie Venus Tan expressed support to the exhibit as it does not only educate tourists but also promotes cultural sensitivity.

She added that the exhibit should be the first stop for tourist so that they can better appreciate the culture of the Cordillera.

The Museo Kordilyera is UP Baguio’s Ethnographic Museum, a repository of the tangible and intangible culture of the Cordillera, and will be distinguished by its integral connection to the scholarly activities and output of the faculty from the different colleges of the university.
