Miagao Salakayan Festival 2012 Tribe Competition Winners Result and Photos

The highlight of Miagao Salakayan Festival is the Tribe Competition. Six participating tribes from different schools in Miagao competed for Tribal Dance. The six tribes were Tribu Kabugwason of Miagao National High School (MNHS), Tribu Buklod of Bacolod National High School (BNHS) , Tribu Bantalaan of San Rafael National High School [SRNHS], Tribu Salagyawan of Alejandro Fermiza Memorial National High School (AFMNHS), Tribu Tabun-ak of Palaca Damilisan National High School (PDNHS), and Tribu Kirayanon of Kirayan National High School (KNHS).

Salakayan Festival is a cultural presentation that highlights the victorious battle waged by local defenders of Miagao against Muslim pirates. Performers showcase a mock combat dance involving leaping, turning, jumping, kicking and the rolling movements of the natives of Miagao brandishing head bolos and spears together with the clashing of shields of fierce Muslim pirates. The festival honors and commemorates the bravery of its ancestors.

Aside from the historical Salakayan re-enactment, this year’s theme is superstition vs religion.

The festival was born in 1999, and during the past 14 years, it has contributed to the cultural environment of the area by presenting local artists with the support of the local government.
