Day 17 : Trip to Hagonoy

Today, I was supposed to conduct Subanen dance workshop to Hiyas ng Hagonoenyo Folkloric Group. So, I did my online research about the Subanens of Zamboanga Peninsula. But I didn’t find any good material on the internet. Very little has been written and posted online about the Subanens. I can’t even find photos of Subanen costumes.

I went to meet first Councilor Crispin de Luna of Dulaang Hagonoenyo. But he was not around. So I just spent my time marveling at the beautiful Hagonoy Catholic Church – the National Shrine of Saint Anne.

From there, I went to San Pedro High School to meet Hiyas ng Hagonoenyo Folkloric Group. But the school was closed. I didn’t know that today was declared holiday due to the typhoon. I will come back sometime to meet the group again.
