Davao-based Igorots welcome CAR athletes
by Ezra L. Balagtey

DAVAO CITY – The Igorot community in Davao celebrated with the coaches, chaperones, and athletes composing the contingent of the Cordillera in the Palarong Pambansa 2019 during the solidarity night held jointly by the Department of Education-Cordillera and Cordillera Mindanao (Corminda) on May 2 at Kapitan Tomas Monteverde Elementary School, Ponciano Street here, where the Cordillera contingent are billeted.

The supposed potluck dinner turned into a mini festival as the Igorots danced to the sound of gongs that reverberated in the school gym, as a way of celebrating the victory of some contingents, the solidarity of the Igorots, and the support shown by Igorots to their fellow.

During the Palarong Pambansa, the Igorots who migrated and are now living in Mindanao likewise showed their support to their kababayan by cheering on some of their games and visiting them in their billeting area to boost the contingent’s morale.

Retired colonel Fidel Francis B. Pumihic, the vice president and one of the elders of Corminda, expressed elation on the show of culture by the Igorot community and the contingents.

“Our culture of solidarity lives on even if we migrated here in Mindanao. The participation of our kababayan in the Palarong Pambansa brought us back home in Cordillera and we reciprocated it by making them also feel at home,” Pumihic said.

The Davao Igorots were welcomed by the contingents led by delegation head Agustin Gumawang.

Corminda is an organization of Igorots in Mindanao organized five years ago in Davao City to continuously ignite the love of the Igorots for their culture and sustain their solidarity although away from home.

The group is presently headed by Dr. Jon Bayugan, president of Davao Del Norte State College.
