landed

A walk through the beautiful Cordillera Mountains and discover the folklore of the mountain peoples and into a landscape that is rich in spirituality and tradition.

๐Ÿ“Œ As legend told us a long time ago about an eagle nesting on the top of Gungal Rock.

According to the belief of the people and shepherds who live in the wild mountain regions around the Gungal rock formation, there is a cave in a cliff where the eagle nestled.

The mountain peoples believe in the existence of invisible beings that come from the heavenly world and the underworld. That these invisible beings are called spirits, who are believed to have power over man.

โœ… It is further believed โ€‹that these unseen beings (spirits) can be manipulated by man to his advantage. With this belief, the people strive to win the favor of the spirits using prayers and material offerings in a ritual.

This belief resulted in a belief system from which customs, traditions, and taboos are established. Through the centuries, the people had adopted this system as part of their lifeways and thought ways.

๐Ÿšฉ Although this belief system is unwritten, it was preserved by the native priest in the form of ritual prayers, which were passed from one generation to another until this day.

Belief of the Mountain Peoples of the two ethnic tribes,

Belief
of the
Mountain Peoples

of the two ethnic tribes,

๐Ÿ“Œ ''kankana-ey'' and ''ibaloy''

of The two main ethnic tribes ''kankanay'' and ''ibaloi'' are not far apart, in their belief system, except that they are dissimilar in linguistics.

Their belief systems are common to both of them, with slight variations in the methods of execution, but without intent or purpose.

The belief of the mountain people shows that above all the gods and goddesses (Kabana) there is the ADI-KAILA or MENGO- SOSCHUNG, the highest.

โœ… In this faith evolved a system of appeasing the malevolent unseen and appreciating the benevolent unseen.

The malevolent unseen are the ones preying on the lives of men, women, and children, like robbers or kidnapped for ransom.

And if not appeased, they harm their victims by inflicting sickness, injury, or finish them to death.

Parallel to the malevolent is the benevolent unseen, who is thought to be the supreme one who gave man the power to counteract the malevolent in the form of rituals.

๐Ÿšฉ The rituals are classified as offensive, defensive and appreciative natures.
