"Kadayawan sa Dabaw" is Davao City's most anticipated festival in celebration of its bountiful harvest and culture. One of the highlights is the Indak-indak sa Kadalanan performed along the major streets of Davao City. Indak-indak, which literally means stomping one's feet on the ground, is a competition of different tribes-participants showcasing choreographed dance inspired by Mindanao's indigenous traditions, legends, myths and cultural events.
It is composed of two categories, the Open Category for Mindanao-based contingents showcasing the festival in their locality; and the Davao-based Category for groups coming from Davao City who will interpret the festival, integrated in a Mindanao folklore, myth or legends.
This morning, I was able to witness for the first time Kadayawan Festival's Indak-indak sa Kadalanan here in Davao City. Here are some of the photos.
It was a superb performance by the participating tribes. Truly, Kadayawan Festival is one of the most colorful and biggest annual celebration in the whole of Davao region! Madayaw Davao!
