Kadayawan Headdresses

The tribes of Davao and surrounding areas have always worn colorful clothings, jewelries and accessories not only during celebrations but also while going through their daily lives. Since Kadayawan festival gives honor and tribute to these tribes, the festival is always colorful, thankful and just oozing with enthusiasm and happiness. That's why I love it more than the Araw ng Dabaw (Davao City) celebration. Aside from that, I just love the colorfully creative and indigenous costumes of the contingents for the Indak-indak sa Kadayawan (streetdancing).

Here are some of the headdresses of the Kadayawan contingents.

The headdresses' style and color combination were also worn based on the stature level of the wearer in their society. Almost always, the more colorful and decorative headdresses were worn by the royalty.
