For the past ten years of the Sentro Rizal program of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), it has been its goal to share various materials that highlight our Philippine cultural identity, for the use of Filipinos all over the world.

As a continuation of Sa Kuwento Natin: E-Storytelling of Indigenous Filipino Tales launched in 2020, the NCCA’s Sentro Rizal will once again feature folk tales in celebration of Buwan ng Wika this August 2021. For Book 2 of Sa Kuwento Natin, Sentro Rizal offers original Filipino fables as retold by Virgilio S. Almario, National Artist for Literature.

Sa Kuwento Natin II: E-Storytelling of Original Filipino Fables will bring life to six stories in its 5 episodes that will convey important messages and lessons to all viewers. These E-Storytelling episodes will be launched in the Sentro Rizal-NCCA YouTube Channel from August 21 to September 18, every Saturday at 6:00 PM (Philippine Standard Time).

  • August 21 – Kabanata 1: Si Pagong at si Matsing
