Ilocos Norte preserves tribal culture with new Eco-Cultural Park

 
 
Along the flourishing tourism industry of Ilocos Norte comes another attraction - the new ecological park and tribal village situated in the upland town of Nueva Era which showcases the rich culture of the tribal and indigenous people in the North.

The park which was opened for public on January 8, 2014 features distinct traditions of the Tingguian community, from tribal huts and tree houses, to tribal costumes, and to known practices such as the performance of Tadek.

The park features villas, performances and cuisine inspired by the old ways of the indigenous peoples group called Tingguians who live in the area, hanging bridge and a swimming pool.
 
Nueva Era Mayor Aldrin Garvida lead guests, which include Governor Imee Marcos and Prof. Amy Liang, a world-renowned bonsai artist, in dancing Tadek during the opening of the park.
 
Tadek dance is a means of thanksgiving for the new couple who are believed to bring forth blessings and perseverance to the whole Tingguian community.
