Relive Palawan History, Visit Palawan Museum


with 2 comments

The Museum’s ethnological exhibits showcase cultural materials from the paraphernalia of a significant ritual like the Pagdiwata of the Tagbanua to ordinary tools, fishing and hunting equipment baskets, woven out of indigenous materials colored with natural dyes that retain their color even under the heat of the sun.

Another featured sub-section is the part of the exhibit of Nicole Revel-Mcdonald at the Cultural Center of the Philippines titled Pananw Palawan. This exhibit focuses on the oral tradition of the Palaw’an highlighting various aspects of their cultural life.

  1. I’m working to establish contact with Tagbanua Barangay in the Calamean region for an up-coming medical mission and need some information on locations, village names and anything available on local culture with particular attention to indigenous health issues.

  2. Hello Caril,

    Thank you for visiting our website. As far as I am aware, we do not have research materials specific for the Tagbanua group of people in the Calamian region. We do have a library of books though which delve on tagbanua religion and society (the list of the books can be viewed through this link or you may click on the library link at the ‘sections part’ of the front page of the website.

    All the books can be borrowed for a specific period from the library of the Palawan Museum at Puerto Princesa City.
