Igorot cultural dance performed in New Zealand


Tabuk City, Kalinga – Aimed at preserving Igorot culture and tradition even when residing abroad, members of Fil@NZ celebrated their 4th anniversary in October by performing cultural dances at the same time conducting a workshop on proper cultural presentation.


Founded in 2018, Fil@NZ is composed of mixed ethnicity, mostly Igorots who are in farming, building, beekeeping, and transport industries.


The group’s first President Amor Moresto, in his interview with PTV Cordillera, explained ‘the event highlighted the relevance of rekindling our connections with our Igorot roots through a series of activities that are essential foundations of bridging the gaps on issues like identity and an opportunity to enhance their connectedness with their roots.’


Based on the concept of the 12th Igorot International Consultation of the Igorot Global Organization in Hawaii, the participants held a grand march across Matamata, New Zealand followed by cultural performances and the youth training workshop.

Afterward, taekwondo teams from Waikato and Auckland presented their exhibitions at the Bay of Plenty.


Newly elected officials of Fil@NZ took their oath of office.


“Nakita tayo ti gagar da ken panangipapati da piman dagitoy youth nga mangsuro ken adda nga mang-adal ken adda mang-iperform iti daytoy nga aktibidades ket nagsayaat launay at the same time, idiay nga maimulmula idiay kapanunutan da diay kinabanur ti kultura ken tradisyon tayo a kas maysa nga Igorots,” expressed the newly elected President June Aludos.
