Something a spectator can enjoy at either the Kayamanan Ng Lahi, Filipino Fiesta, or Mabuhay Festival.

*Members of Kayamana Ng Lahi present a dance called "Dinuyya," from the people of Ifugao, the builders of the gigantic rice terraces of Banaue (considered the eighth wonder of the world). The dances imitate birds, which in the Philippines are a symbol of power, strength and authority.

*"Sagayan" is performed to welcome guests and ward off evil spirits. It originated with the Maguindanao tribe of South Mindanao, with costumes of Southeast Asian influence.

*Jota Cagayana" is a dance that originated in the Isabela province of the northern Philippines. The dance is Spanish in style, but the costumes are of American influence, reflecting styles of the early 20th century.

The Korean Festivals & Centennial celebration 1903-2003

One hundred years ago, the first wave of Korean immigrants arrived in Hawai'i, and another cultural thread wove itself into the American tapestry. Celebrations of those beginnings are being held across the nation this week, and yesterday afternoon the centennial was marked in Waikiki.
