31st CAR Month to highlight youth’s role
by Mario T. Lubguban

Planning for the 31st Cordillera Month celebrations in July has started.

Based on the Technical Working Group (TWG) of the Development Administration Committee (DevAd) of the Regional Development Council (RDC-CAR) meeting on Jan. 12, the provincial government of Ifugao will host the celebration.

On the drawing board are the return of activities such as Cordillera’s Got Ta-lent and the Cultural Summit on Cordillera Heritage. The Unity Gong relay remains the center piece of the celebration.

The proposed theme of this year’s Cordillera Month program focuses on the role of the youth as the future of Cordillera.

The Committee will identify young Cordillerans who can serve as advocates for regional autonomy.

Events for the youth such as provincial fun runs, youth concerts led by the Armed Forces of the Philippines-North Luzon Command together with the Philippine National Police, and a skills event on good governance are some of the proposed activities for the month.

The TWG will decide on the theme, the list of activities, and the route of the Unity Gong relay, among other events, during its next meeting on Feb. 15.

The Cordillera Month commemorates the creation of the Cordillera Administrative Region as a transitory government towards a regional autonomous government per Executive Order 220.

Its primary event is the Unity Gong relay, the symbol of Cordillera unity towards autonomy. The Unity Gong is passed from one CAR province to another within one week and culminates its journey in the host province every July 15 – the anniversary of the creation of the region.
