The Road Not TakenTHankyou for the infos, apparently i am currently looking for a good destination to go to in the Philippines when we go back home for relaxation. Thanks for providing a huge information and now i had a knowledge about the culture, tradition and custom of Cagayan valley. The Cagayan Valley. It has three cities; Cauayan City, its regional center-Tuguegarao, and its commercial center-Santiago City. Most of the region lies in a large valley in northeastern Luzon, between the Cordilleras and the Sierra Madre mountain ranges. The Cagayan River, the country's longest river runs through its center and flows out to Luzon Strait in the north, in the town of Aparri, Cagayan. The Babuyan and Batanes island groups that lie in the Luzon Strait also belong to the region. It is characterized by gently rolling hills, cliffs, and black and white sand beaches. Batanes is about kilometers approx. Basco, the capital town, is about kilometers north of Aparri and about kilometers south of Taiwan. The Ilocano dialect is also spoken while Filipino and English are generally spoken and understood. Major Industries The province has a total agricultural land area of 5, hectares and has a wide area open for agricultural expansion. Due to its terrain, it is a major livestock producer with cattle as its main stock. Carabaos and goats are also popularly raised. Another major industry is fishing which reaches its peak during the summer months, from March to June, when the seawater is relatively calm. History InPhilippine Governor General Jose Basco y Vargas sent an expedition to undertake the formalities of getting the consent of the Ivatans to become subjects of the King of Spain. The new province was named Provincia dela Concepcion. Manila decided to downgrade the province in since it was unable to support itself. The office of the governor was abolished and Valero Bermudez was appointed Alcalde. However, upon the formal recognition of the Itbayat Mission inthe governorship was restored and Fernando dela Cuevas was assigned Governor.

Ibanag dialect was a strong factor in Cagayanos evangelization of the pagan and hostile inhabitants. Evangelization and pacification of the valley were difficult because: - the communities found by the colonizers were far apart- separated by wild forest and crocodile infested rivers to cross along which the missionaries and soldiers had to travel. It was always the missionaries who consoled the natives in time of the calamities and who pacified them when they revolted. Missionaries accomplished their difficult and hazardous tasks and pacification: because they and only they among the Spaniards, learned the Ibanag their eagerness to spread Catholic faith unmindful of the difficulties and dangers, they penetrated even the farthest native communities and taught the Ibanag to the non- Ibanag speaking natives. Captain Juan Pablo Carrion - smiled to Lallo and founded there the mission of Nueva Segovia which because the springboard of the missionaries in their evangelization A. Started their evangelization work in the territory from Masi to Gattaran B. Learned the spoken dialect which they had to preach C. Wrote cartillas, catechisms and prayer books in this dialect Fr. HERRERA- ordered all religious missionaries to study Ibanag and see to it that the boys and girls recite all the prayers in Ibanag and to those come down from the mountains and who will be converted to our Catholic faith. Girls and boys should know the mysteries to be able to receive the waters of baptism, in the same language so that in the course of time everybody will speak the Ibanag dialect. Songs are for ceremonial and recreational and they are narrative, speculative, romantic, ridiculing or titilliating. SALOMON- to the accompaniment of the cinco- cinco a five stringed instrument is sung during the Christmas season before improvised home altars, supported through the night with wine, coffee, chocolate and native cakes. Osse- osse and the Kilingkingan - two of the most popular versos that usually giving the vocal accompaniment of dances by those names. Few examples: Arri ka mavurung ta Kabaddi ku lalung, kuak Ku mamayappak, kannak Ku utun, gukak. Worry not my being a small cock, For when i fly to attack I never miss my mark. This is an expression of the determination of cock-sureness of the Ibanag in love, courtship, fight or contest, despite his size, humility, poverty and misery. This explains why he has survived all adversities under different regimes in the hands of colonial powers and during the Martial Law days. Folk Songs Other folksongs are love songs most often with promises, pledges, assurances, lessons to teach and guidance to give. The growth of Ibanag songs and singers reached its peak when the harana or serenade in rustic communities was both a form of nocturnal recreation among the "babbagitolay" and a way of starting courtship for a "magingnganay. Love folksongs were common during weddings and other socials.
