Oct. 10, 2016

TAGUM CITY, Philippines — The Tagum City government granted Php800,000 to the Tagum City Federation of Barangay Tribal Council as a livelihood assistance for the Tribal Dress Embroidery and Business Development Services.

In a City Information Office dispatch on Monday, Oct. 10,  the endowment will benefit ten trained indigenous peoples  (5 men, 5 women) from Brgy. Canocotan who would produce high quality, commercial embroidery that could be sold to the pubic.  They would also accept orders for those who want customized designs.

“Dakuwa yang kanami pag-uma saan sang proyekto nang mga bagung utaw, (We are so thankful for this project for the youth members of the tribe,)” said City Tribal Chieftain Datu Romeo O. Dansigan.

The said project would make use of modern technology in the form an embroidery machine. Aside from catering to the increasing demand in customized tribal design, the embroidery shop would also be tasked to supply the primary need of IPs in terms of tribal dress design. (davaotoday.com)
