The high regard and value that Filipino indigenous people have put on salt are seen in the way the people in Ilocos Norte take great pains to produce it in the very way their forefathers did.
Marcelina Vergara, who has been making salt in the traditional process since she was 15, explains the process.
Dayaw is a project of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) and the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC), supported by the Office of Senator Loren Legarda.
