Brief Description

A festival celebrated by people of Duhaylungsod Lapuyan, Zamboanga del Sur who are well known  for their peace-loving nature. Through the years, the Subanen’s main source of living is planting rice which is an important aspect of their culture. For the Subanen, harvest season is a time for merrymaking where they come together as one, family and friends, not only for the harvest but also sharing of bountiful blessing, singing, dancing, chanting and feasting altogether on home-made delicacies and ‘pangase’, a rice wine fermented through a traditional process kept and handed down through ancestral lines. The celebration happens every October in time for the harvest season.
