7th Andew te Keretungan

Tribal leaders join the panampulot during a ritual to signal the start of the 7th Andew te Keretungan (Keretungan Day) in Barangay Lourdes, Valencia City on July 11, 2012. Keretungan, or Kalatungan, is a mountain range that straddles Valencia and the towns of Maramag, Pangantucan and Talakag, all in Bukidnon. The celebration is intended to popularize awareness on the importance of conserving the mountain range, which has been declared a protected area. MindaNews photo by H. Marcos C. Mordeno
