Malong Weaving

MALAPATAN, Sarangani (June 18, 2007) – Muslim women in Malapatan weave the traditional malong dress as one of the highlights in celebration of the town's 38th Foundation Anniversary and 2nd Pakaradyan Festival which ends on June 21. Pakaradyan is a Maguindanao word for "feast" which may come as a wedding celebration, Tanda (baptismal rites), Salangguni (pamanhikan), Qadtamat (Koran reading), among others. For the non-Maguindanaon, Pakaradyan is equivalent to any Filipino fiesta celebration and banquets. (Photo by SARANGANI INFORMATION OFFICE/CAS)
