Kalinga Officials taking oath encouraged to use “Laga” to support indigenous artisans


Tabuk City, Kalinga – Aside from the usual Filipiniana and Barong Tagalog, elected officials who will take their oath this June 30 were encouraged by the Reception Committee of the Inauguration to use the Kalinga Laga during the Oath taking and Turn-over Ceremony of Newly Elected and Re-elected Provincial Officials.


The dress code set by the committee chaired by Provincial Tourism Officer Lorraine Alunday – Ngao-i is aimed at supporting local artisans in Kalinga as well as helping with the promotion of said products to larger markets.

“So everybody is encouraged, though not a requirement naman, to wear Filipiniana or kalinga attire as a promotion ng ating Kalinga Laga,” the tourism officer said.


Ngao-i disclosed that the dress code was discussed during the meeting with secretaries of incoming and re-elected provincial officials the first week of June, in which the majority of them agreed.


Family members attending the said event will also be required to follow the dress code.


Ngao-i said such local events are opportunities to aid indigenous artisans through the sale of their arts and crafts aside from having them being featured in local fashion shows in the province.

Local officials taking their oath this June 30 include Governor-elect James Edduba, Vice-Governor elect Jocel Baac, and the 8 Sangguniang Panlalawigan members of the two districts of the province.


The event is scheduled to take place at noon on Thursday, June 30, 2022 at the Kalinga Sports Center (Capitol Gym) with Municipal Circuit Trial Court Judge Nympha Abbacan administering their oath of office.
