Bukidnon Tribal Wedding during Kaamulan Festival 2018
A tribal wedding was one of the more interesting and very solemn, albeit uncrowded, events during the Kaamulan Festival 2018. It’s not every day that you get to witness an event that really highlighted the traditions of our Bukidnon indigenous brothers and sisters, which the festival really is meant to do, truth be told. Anyways…
For the purpose of this post, however, allow us to share some of the photos and a video that the Bukidnon Online team, led by Ben and Dan, took during the Bukidnon tribal wedding held at Capitol stage, Malaybalay City. Thank you to Ben and Dan for the awesome job!
A tribal wedding, by the way, is, by definition, is also “Kaamulan.” Let’s remember that Kaamulan is from the Binukid word “amul,” which means “to gather.” Hence, Kaamulan is essentially a gathering of Bukidnon tribes people for a purpose. It can mean a datuship, a ritual, a festival or, in this case, yes, a tribal wedding ceremony.
