Mabal Blaan exhibit opens in Gensan
|The two keepers of (Blaan) tradition. (Left) Fu Gusiye Buan & (Right) Fu Yabing Dulo.|
“The Blaan Tabih is difficult to make. If the entire tradition of Mabal making will be carried on only by the last two masters (Fu Yabing and Fu Gusiye), only a few more Mabals will be completed; the documentation of this fabulous cultural resource will be left unfinished; the noble narrative of the existence of a Blaan nation will go silent with the passing of the masters.”
The Mabal Blaan exhibit runs till October 13-16 at the Event Center of SM City General Santos.
