MALUNGON, Sarangani (November 24, 2018) – Mayor Tessa Constantino (3rd from left) leads the groundbreaking ceremony of the Congressional-funded, P10M-worth museum and Tribal Hall on November 18 at the Municipal Sunken Ground. The ceremony was made at the end of the two-day (November 17-18) celebration of Slang Festival. Also in photo are (left-right) former Mayor Reynaldo “Bong” Constantino, Vice Governor Elmer de Peralta, Atty. Ryan Ramos representing Rep. Rogelio D. Pacquiao, NCIP regional director Jeanne Ann Zoilo, Sarangani tribal chieftain Edmund Pangilan, and ranking IP officials in the municipality. “We are contemplating for the building of a two-storey edifice para sa mga magiging tanggapan ng ating IPMR at tribal chieftains, including a museum para mapaglagyan ng mga authentic tribal antiques such as wears, tools, gongs and weaponry. This will be a good display hub not only for tourists, but primarily, for our younger generation to be reminded of their ancient beliefs and traditions, including on how to match the fake artifacts, to authentic ones,” Mayor Constantino said.
