AROMANEN MANUVU natives of Barangay Bentangan in Carmen town of North Cotabato gather around every Friday and Sunday to dance. This is their expression of their faith, a form of worship and ritual — a window into their life as indigenous peoples.
Women, men, the elderly and children as young as 3 join together as they devote their time to make music and dance together to worship God.
It is also through ‘sayaw’ that they surrender everything to God — their worries, their problems, their aspirations and their dreams.
