Bagobo-Tagabawa Cultural Village
Tibolo, Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur
The 2-hectare Cultural Village serves as a landmark of living indigenous cultural traditions, a venue for cultural exchange, a center for culture-focused creative industry and trade, and a learning site for the conservation of cultural and natural resources.
The cultural immersion experience to visitors is fulfilled with the offering of traditional dishes such as “Nilutlot na manok sa gata”, a native chicken steamed in a bamboo shoot with ginger, coconut milk, lemongrass, and “tagiya”, an herb that gives the dish a curry scent and flavor. Cooking the dish inside a bamboo shoot gives the dish a woody and nutty flavor.
