Gumne Blaan launching
Blaan dance performance of the young kids at Lamlifew, Datal Tampal, Malungon during the launching of the Gumne Blaan (tribal house) used for the School of Living Tradition (SLT). Primary focus of the SLT is to transfer skills by the old folks to the new generation for ansif (cross-stitching), mabal making (different designs of Blaan cloth made of abaca or hemp), traditional necklaces, head dress, takmon (cloth designed with mother of pearl), beaded dress as well as basketry making.
