“DAYAW” CONTINUES TO CHAMPION FILIPINO HERITAGE WITH ELEVENTH SEASON ON THE ABS-CBN NEWS CHANNEL (ANC)August 25, 2021
The mission to promote Filipino indigenous culture and heritage goes on for the award-winning documentary series “Dayaw” with the launch of its eleventh season on ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, this August.
A production of ANC and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), “Dayaw” has been documenting the lifeways, traditions, practices, and culture of the different Indigenous Peoples groups since 2015.
Still leading the way for “Dayaw” on its eleventh season is its host, three-term Senator, and now House Deputy Speaker and Antique Congresswoman, Loren Legarda, who conceptualized the program.
“It has always been Dayaw’s mission to document as many aspects of Filipino culture and knowledge systems as possible. We can only save these from extinction by continuing to instill their importance in the younger generation, and let them practise and learn these treasures. With the theme “Kakaibang Sigla,” Dayaw Season 11 allows us to look at the different ways in which our energy, competitiveness and sportsmanship are mainstreamed in the traditional societies and knowledge systems,” Loren said.
After featuring traditional Filipino children’s games such as patintero, sipa, and luksong tinik in the first episode, followed by a two-part special on the Punnuk, a show of physical strength that ends the Ifugao’s harvest season, “Dayaw” will then focus on Filipino martial arts such as arnis, silat, and eskrima in its next two episodes, starting on Thursday (August 26), 6pm on ANC and the ANC Facebook.
The season will wrap up on September 3 with “Sayawang Pinoy,” an episode highlighting how grace and fluidity of movements of Filipinos express our energy, discipline and joy as a people.
Despite the pandemic, “Dayaw” has been able to launch new seasons, with Season 12 already in the works. Titled “KAKA-IBANG SIGLA: Our Vital Energy Part 2,” it will explore love, courtship, marriage, and the cycles of life featuring the Gaddang, Tboli, and Sama Dilaut.
“We are fortunate to have shot a treasure trove of material before the pandemic began. This has enabled us to go on with our mission of telling the stories of our indigenous peoples so that future generations may still be able to appreciate and continue their legacy,” said ANC chief operating officer Nadia Trinidad.
NCCA Chair Arsenio “Nick” Lizaso expressed his gratitude to former Senator Legarda and ANC for their part in bringing our indigenous people’s knowledge and heritage closer to Filipino and even foreign viewers.
“I would like to commend Deputy Speaker Loren Legarda for her vision and commitment to preserve, promote and enrich our culture and heritage, and to ANC for translating that vision into an exemplary body of work,” he said.
“Dayaw” Season 11 airs every Thursday at 6 pm on ANC on cable and the ANC Facebook page.

“DAYAW,” PATULOY SA PAGSULONG SA PAMANANG PILIPINO SA BAGONG SEASON SA ABS-CBN NEWS CHANNEL (ANC)
Patuloy ang misyon ng premyadong documentary series na “Dayaw” na ipalaganap ang kultura at pamanang Pilipino sa ika-labing-isa nitong season sa ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, ngayong Agosto.
Mula 2015, itinatampok na sa produksyong ito ng ANC at National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) ang mga kagawian, tradisyon, at kultura ng mga iba’t-ibang grupo ng indigenous peoples sa bansa sa pangunguna ni three-term Senator, at ngayo’s House deputy Speaker at Antique Congresswoman, Loren Legarda, na siyang nakaisip na gawin ang programa.
Ani Loren, layunin talaga ng “Dayaw” ang ma-dokumento ang maraming aspekto ng kultura at kaalamang katutubo para manatili itong buhay at naisasapuso ng mga susunod na henerasyon.
Sa bagong season na pinamagatang “Kakaibang Sigla,” ipapakita sa “Dayaw” ang enerhiya, pagiging competitive, at sportsmanship ng mga Pilipino na lumalabas sa mga tradisyunal na laro, martial arts, at sayaw ng bansa.
Una nang tinampok ang mga kinalakhang laro ng mga Pilipino tulad ng patintero, sipa, at luksong tinik sa unang episode, kasunod ang two-part special ukol sa ritwal na Punnuk ng mga Ifugao tuwing katapusan ng ani. Sa mga susunod na episode ng “Dayaw,” ibibida naman ang Filipino martial arts tulad ng arnis, silat, at eskrima sa two-part special na magsisimula ngayong Huwebes (Agosto 26), habang “Sayawang Pinoy” naman ang pokus sa huling episode sa Setyembre 3.
Sa kabila ng pandemya, nakapaglunsad pa ang “Dayaw” ng mga bagong season, habang hinahanda na rin ang Season 12 na tungkol naman sa mga kagawian kaugnay ng pag-ibig, panliligaw, pagaasawa, at buhay tampok ang mga Gaddang, Tboli, at Sama Dilaut.
Sabi ni ANC chief operating officer Nadia Trinidad, mapalad sila dahil marami silang naimpok na materyal bago ang pandemya kung kaya hindi naputol ang kanilang paghahatid ng kwento tungkol sa pamumuhay ng mga indigenous peoples.
Nagpapasalamat naman si NCCA Chair Arsenio “Nick” Lizaso sa kontribusyon nina former Senator Legarda at ng ANC sa paglalapit ng mga kaalaman at pamana ng ating katutubo sa mga manonood na Pilipino at maging sa mga taga-ibang bansa.
“I would like to commend Deputy Speaker Loren Legarda for her vision and commitment to preserve, promote and enrich our culture and heritage, and to ANC for translating that vision into an exemplary body of work,” sabi niya.
Napapanood ang “Dayaw” Season 11 tuwing Huwebes, 6 pm sa ANC sa cable at sa ANC Facebook page.
