Message of Senator Nancy Binay on the celebration
of the Kadayawan Festival

I join our kababayans in Davao in their celebration of the Kadayawan Festival, a thanksgiving and commemoration of the city's rich cultural heritage and a bountiful harvest.

Kadayawan honors the lumad and Muslim cultures which make Davao a vibrant and dynamic metropolis. It also showcases the abundant harvest that our hardworking farmers have produced, as well as the natural richness of the land.

Kadayawan strengthens the camaraderie, friendship and goodwill among the residents of Davao, as well as our fellow Filipinos and friends from abroad, by celebrating the variety of cultures, traditions and groups that make up the Philippines.

Ipinagpapatuloy at pinapalakas ng Kadayawan ang pagrespeto, pag-unawa at pagkakaroon ng bukas na isipan upang makapamuhay ang bawat isa na malaya, matiwasay at may pagkakaisa.
