  1. TADEK

    (tadek among the lowland itnegs of abra and itnegs in ilocos sur and ilocos norte; tadok among the the highland itnegs of inland abra)

    It is an itneg term for community dancing… can be done by pairs, or by groups… The kankanaeys do not call it tadek, they call it tayaw (or other terms, depending on the kind of gong beat); neither do the Applais & Bontocs who are the nearest easterly & southeasterly neighbors of the itnegs.

    The Bago people are actually a new breed of indigenous peoples who are products of itneg-ilokano marriages (or in some cases, igorot-ilokano nuptials)…

  2. of course like your web-site however you have to check the spelling on quite a few of
    your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding
    it very troublesome to tell the truth however I will surely come again again.
