On February 16, 2012 was the soft opening of the Kaamulan festival with the theme “MAINSTREAMING OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLE: CUSTOM TOWARDS ECOLOGICAL APPRECIATION AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT (KAPANALIWADA HU TULUK ETAW: BATASAN PAYANAEN HU BAGAD KADAYUN – DAYUN DAW KAUHANGAN)” The indigenous people gathered in this Kaamulan festival to give respect to each tribe. It’s a gathering of the seven tribes who come together to celebrate the Kaamulan festival with joy and unity. All the tribes were united as one to avoid chaos and war.
The salu tabo was organized to promote the good produce and products of the locals and so with the indigenous people. Salu tabo will let the locals and the indigenous people will learn to sell their good products and produce to the people of Mindanao and to all tourist who came to witness the bountiful Kaamulan festival.
Salu tabo is a mixture of all the goods and produce of the locals and so with the indigenous people. Like the fresh vegetables and fruits, the artistic handicrafts, the colorful accessories, the healthy ornamental plants, the dazzling Japanese coy and the grandness of the Kaamulan festival. Vegetables and fruits are freshly harvested from their fertile lands. The artistic handicrafts were made creatively by some locals and by the indigenous people. The colorful accessories are showing the people how vibrant their culture is. The healthy ornamental plants show the amazing climate or Bukidnon that some plants will only grow into their place. The serenity of the Japanese coy makes you feel relax and it will sunk into your senses of being free and gracefully movements in the water.
