Dumagats celebrate nature

The Dumagats are an indigenous people of the Philippines who believe that nature is sacred. Every April, family members bring their pets and livestock and camp out along the river for five days to sing, dance, eat and give thanks for all that the earth has given them.

CFCA respects the Dumagats’ values and traditions and is working with them to help preserve their way of life. About 200 Dumagats are sponsored through CFCA’s Antipolo project.

In this video, the Dumagats are observing Paskuhan sa Tag-araw, a celebration of nature.

  1. We already sponsor a child in the Philippines, so it was with great interest too see these people who love and respect the earth that they live in.
