KAAMULAN FESTIVAL is an annual fiesta celebration of the 7 Ethnic Tribes in Bukidnon namely Matigsalug, Tigwahanun, Higaunu, Umayamnun, Manobo, Budkidnon and Talaandig. It is a cultural celebration of the tribe's legendary stories, authentic rituals, ethnic music and street dancing traditions.
The fiesta is usually held in March, but it was moved in September this year to coincide with the Centennial Celebration of the creation of the province of Bukidnon last September 1, 1914.
I was curious to experience it because George Tapan hailed it as one of the best and most authentic fiestas in the Philippines.
