Dayaw Season 2: Episode 6 – Karangyaan – Celebrating the Body (Part 2)
Season two of Dayaw ends in a burst of color, ornamentation and adornment. Our IPs are known for their colorful and meaningful clothing and accessories. We look into how materials such as beads, brass and sequins have become more than just objects of trade but highly valued heirlooms and objects of social and spiritual value,” said Legarda.
The episode explores the significance of accessories and the meaning of each to the cultures of the Ga’dang, T’boli, and Bagobo. Many of the glass and stone beads used by IPs were from India, China, Afghanistan, Venice, and different parts of Europe that were traded all over the Philippines. These beads, which had economic value, were blended with native materials to become heirloom pieces.
