We enjoin you to be part of SITMo’s Tagtag di Asipulo Tour on May 15 to 17, 2009. It will be held in Amduntog Village in Asipulo, a laidback and beautiful town in Ifugao.
Tagtag is a traditional ritual to protect the rice crop from rats and other pests. It is also a ritual to drive away evils and bad omens from Ifugao communities.
Please support this tour as it helps the Ifugao rice terraces by bringing tourists to share the tourism income with the community. Part of the proceeds of the tour goes directly to the community to help them promote their indigenous culture and preserve the rice terraces.
The Tagtag di Asipulo Tour gives the tourists the opportunity to see an important aspect of the Ifugao culture that has nurtured the Ifugao rice terraces for thousands of years.
Visits to the famous Banaue rice terraces and Hapao rice terraces are also included in the itinerary. The Ifugao rice terraces will be at its finest during this time of the year.
Thank you very much.
Very truly yours,
TEDDY B. BAGUILAT, JR.
Governor, Ifugao Province
Honorary Chairman, Save the Ifugao Terraces Movement (SITMo)
