The Giant Higa-onon Headdress


The photo of the Day is the Giant Headdress with the dancers belonging to the Higa-onon Tribe at the center on their best attire as participants to the annual Kaamulan Festival featuring the seven tribes (Higa-onon, Bukidnon, Manobo, Talaandig, Matigsalug, Tigwahanon and Umayamnon) residing in the Province of Bukidnon, Mindanao Island, Philippines. I took this Giant Headdress photo during my trip from Cagayan de Oro City to Davao City via Buda when I passed by this head-turning structure at the junction between the national highway and the Sayre Highway leading to the town of Impasug-ong, which is a Higa-onon term meaning make the current come upstream.
