ETHNOLOGY SECTION

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.
