DINAGYANG FESTIVAL (Iloilo)
This festival celebrates the time when the image of Senor Sto. Niño was first brought to the archipelago by Magellan as a goodwill gift for the wife of Rajah Kulambo.  Natives used the image of the Child Jesus to convince aboriginal tribesmen of the saving power of God.  This year, Tribu Paghidaet of La Paz National High School continues to honor Senor Sto. Niño and proclaim with “one mind and one heart” the omnipresence of God.   Festival muse – Natalie Grace Roberts.
