WITH the success of the “Tribal Village” during last year's Kadayawan sa Dabaw Festival, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) plans to make the cultural village into a “hub for culture and peace.”

In a press conference on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at the City Council, City Tourism Operations Office (CTOO) chief Genrose Tecson said that the NCCA was impressed by last year’s Kadayawan tribal village.

“It became a trademark for Davao City, that we became a hub for peace because where else in the country can you see 11 tribes living peacefully with us Dabawenyos,” she said.

The Kadayawan tribal village aims to show how each cultural group’s distinct culture is seen through recreating their own ethnic houses.

The CTOO assured Dabawenyos that the site for the cultural village in this year's Kadayawan celebration will still be located at Magsaysay Park.SEE MORE
