Jose Namingit (right), an Ifugao culture bearer puts the “butung” (hip bag) on Dr. Edwin Antonio of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) during the inauguration of the Indigenous Peoples Education (IPED) center in Lagawe town. The butung is stacked at the left hip where men place their chewing materials and it symbolizes how their hearts treasure their friendship with other people. (MBL – PIA CAR, Ifugao)
