Kabataan, Kultura, ug Kabilin launching

The Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Incorporated (RAFI), in partnership with the Carolonian Sociolocial- Anthropological Society, launched its very first Kabataan, Kultura, ug Kabilin or KKK last August 8 at the Casa Gorordo Museum.  Five museums in Cebu were opened from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm to welcome about 300 visiting students.

Worth the wait. The students of University of San Carlos set to travel time via tartanilla and foot.

This cultural event is aimed to encourage the schools and their students to tour Cebu museums.  KKK also aims to be the venue for cultural and social understanding especially by and among the young.

A short program was held showcasing presentations like the Filipino literary tradition Balitaw, and the ritual performed by fisherfolks of Aloguinsan called Pahinungod which literally means offering.

Balitaw is a Filipino literary tradition of courtship. In this performance, the woman is convicted to stay home for mama. :)

Kabataan, Kultura, ug Kabilin are Cebuano words that mean Youth, Culture, and Heritage.  The KKK activity is similar to the successful heritage event called Gabii sa Kabilin happening annually for three years now.
