Sarangani rediscovering heritage

ALABEL, Sarangani (November 26, 2016) – Region 12 Tourism Council president Michelle Lopez Solon links the three-day Munato Yesterland Theme Park that opened on November 24 to “rediscovering (the) roots” of Sarangani.

Solon said as a promising young province filled with rich heritage of Indigenous Peoples, its cultural festival dubbed as Munato should stand out from the rest of the festivals in the country by retracing heritage and “recreating a new concept” for the people to best understand its culture.

“We want a culture to be relatable and easily understood by the young. We want you not to just read the books. We want you to see it, to experience and to enjoy it,” by joining Munato, said Solon.
