Ab-abuyog: 49 Home to Whang-od, a famed traditional tattooist and Macli’ing Dulag, a renowned tribal hero, Tinglayan in Kalinga Province can be considered as a seat of cultural heritage. Like most indigenous communities, bayanihan is among the cultural practices in this community. For Tinglayan, they call it ab-abuyog. This was a practice where farmers help each other in tilling their farms. However, time caused the deliberate relapse of this heritage. Years passed, ab-abuyog became a forgotten culture in Tinglayan but has now found its way back to weave the community. “For a time, we forgot how our ancestors built this community without a formal government” says Tinglayan Mayor Johnny Maymaya Sr. “All they did was just help each other build these communities,” he pondered.
