  • 9. 9Introduction and BackgroundThe native tribe of the ―Tagbanua’s who are now settled in the area near the sea,once lived uphill in the mountains of barangay Malinao. Their peace wasshattered when rebel forces invaded their ancestral land. As a result the localgovernment of Narra provided them a place to re-settle in order to resume to theirnormal family life in a place called Purok Pagkakaisa.The survey reveals that the area is composed of four clans, the Batacs, Diazes,Espinosas and the Ulosans, the people residing at the edges of the purok travels 2kilometer just to fetch their drinking water.The residents fetch water from a single PALTUBIG (Palawan Tubig) water pumpsituated in a farmland in the area. It is the only water pump that produces safedrinking water. The other artesian well in the purok produces salty water whichis used only for household cleaning while some water pumps are not drinkableaccording to the water testing result.The first plan was to install the electric water pump to the PALTUBIG, allowingthe flow of fresh drinking water downwards with the use of PVC pipes to the seaedges. The plan was not materialized due to the fact that the PALTUBIG bears acylinder. If an electric pump will be attached to the PALTUBIG, the well can notbe used when electricity is not available. That action would cause anotherproblem to the nearby houses that uses the water well for washing.After several deliberations, the barangay council and the residents decided thatthe water pump located in the residence of Mrs. Cristy Diaz, the purok day careworker shall be use instead.
  • 10. 10Project DescriptionThe project is called‖WATER SOURCE INSTALLATION’ is inspired by theWAGGGS slogan ―Girls Worldwide say “think about water.” It is designed toimprove the Tagbanuas‘ way of life by providing them easy access to safedrinking water.The project emerges from the desire of an ordinary Senior Girl Scout fromNarra, Palawan to make a difference and to put Narra Senior Girl Scoutmovement in the map of Chief Girl Scout Medal Scheme history.The project has yielded attention as well as heighting public interest aboutCGSMS in the town of Narra.
  • 11. 11 Project Objectives The major goal of the project Improve the quality of life of the Tagbanua‘s by providing them easy access to safe drinking water. Supply clean water to the less fortunate people so they can live healthier and more productive lives. This will be accomplished through specific objectives as follows:1. Bridge the gap that divides the modern citizens of Narra and the native Tagbanua tribe.2. Awaken the overshadowed Bayanihan culture among the purok residents.3. Educate the Tagbanuas on water sanitation and conservation.4. Create awareness amongst the members of the community to practice a quarterly water testing to ensure water sanitation.5. Encourage Girl Scouts to participate in community projects.6. Raise community awareness amongst Narranian to appreciate the important role of scouting in molding the youth of today.7. Spread the tidings that Girl Scouts can make a difference.
  • 12. 12Project Methodology:The candidate with the work group visits the project area every two weeks butvisitation was done as need arises. Communication between the work groupand the barangay council is always open through mobile texting and calls.Networking with various government offices, private individuals and localNGO‘s such as Rotary Club of Narra, Interact Club and Lions Club wasutilized to extend help to the Tagbanua Tribe of Purok Pagkaka-isa.Project Budget:The items incurred in the expenses:1. Electric water pump2. PVC pipes3. Water tank4. Foods during the Christmas party and giveaways to kids5. Souvineers/T-shirts for the residents6. Transportation Expenses
  • 13. 13I choose water project becauseWATER CHANGES EVERYTHING.A clean water project nearby means more than safe drinking water to women andchildren in Purok Pagkaka-isa, Malinao, Narra , Palawan; it means time, freedom andincentive to change their community. Supplying clean water to the less fortunatepeople means healthier and more productive lives.Unsafe water could kill people more than all forms of violence, including war.I am a Girl Scout with a big dream for humanity and I hope this project is a steppingstone for a bigger service to the Filipino society.

  • 207. 207The water testing request dated May 23, 2011 with a positive resultwhich means the water is not advisable for human consumption.The source of water was the purok presidents water pump. Thefollowing week chlorination was conducted by Ate Imelda Atiga theBarangay Volunteer Sanitary Inspector.
  • 208. 208Collecting water sample Water sample before chlorination Water sample after chlorination The water testing request dated May 23, 2011 got a positive result which means the water is not suitable for human consumption. The source of water was the purok presidents water pump, which was the second alternative well for the project.. The following week chlorination was conducted. We decided to test another well to make sure the the water project will produce safe water for human consumption.
  • 209. 209Collecting water sample Water sample before chlorination Water sample after chlorination The water testing request dated June 2, 2011 yeilded a negative result that go signals the erection ang connection of the water pump that will distribute safe drinking water downwards the area near the sea.
  • 210. 210Chlorination was conducted and yielded a safe drinking water forthe Tagbanua families.
  • 211. 211Outcome of the Project: The project started with a survey on the households of Purok Pagkakaisa, Malinao Narra, Palawan; with the participation of the Senior Girl Scouts of Troop 767 of Panacan National High School and San Francisco Javier Troop 832. Through the survey we found out the top three needs of the Purok; third is the road condition, second the electricity, and number one problem is water. The following are the reasons why Purok Pagkakaisa has limited source of safe drinking water:1. Poverty Almost everyone on the Purok is unemployed; only few of them has a job better call it an irregular job. It is hard for them to make money to provide the needs of their families including safe water source. Some of the elders haven‘t got a chance to study, some of them reached elementary/high school only. With their lack of proper education they find it hard to find a regular well-paying job. Since they find it hard to find a well-paying job, they cannot handle the high cost of living. They often have no spare income for their expenses whether it is for emergency or not. Some of them only rely on their tribe‘s 1% share from mining.
  • 212. 2122. Instead of using the money they get from the mining company toprovide what their tribe needs, they used the money to buy cellular phones fortheir enjoyment. They also bought three motorcycles to be used as the tribesservice whenever they need to go to Poblacion, the sad thing is that the oneswho were assigned to take care of the motorcycles won‘t let others to ride on itthey only use it for their own.3. Families have no knowledge about family planning. Families havemany children which resulted into more financial problems. They couldn‘tprovide what their children needs; they couldn‘t spare enough money to putup a safe water source.4. Parents have no knowledge on how important clean water is. It‘salright with them even if their child is bathing on the river with a carabao.5. The Purok is located near the ocean. So even if they put up lots and lotsof pumps over and over again they can‘t use the pump because of the saltywater it produces.Weekly visitations were done by the applicant with help from some co-SeniorGirl Scouts. Water education is being done by the applicant to the children and theelderly of Purok Pagkakaisa, Malinao, Narra, Palawan. All of the elderly men and household heads of the Purok helped onputting up the tank, they were all thankful because they don‘t need anymoreto walk long distance to fetch safe drinking water. It has been a very tough jobbut every time I see the smiles that my project has cost it was all worth it.
  • 213. 213Project Impact to the Recipients1. It lessens the distance the Tagbanuas need to walk just to get drinking water.2. The children learned the different uses and how important clean water is.3. Through chlorination, now the Tagbanuas have fresh and clean drinking water.4. Families realized the value of water and learned how to use water wisely.5. The families learned the importance of clean water.6. The families learned how to disinfect the water that they drink.7. The community appreciated Girl Scouting more thanbefore.
  • 214. 214 Impact to the AspirantI learned a lot of things from the CGSMS experience:1. I become more confident on when dealing with fellow man especiallythe indigent people.2. I become friendly to many people regardless of their color and socialstatus.3. I learned to manage my time especially during school days.4. I learned to control my temper.5. I learned to adjust to the attitudes of newly known people.6. I learned to be contented of what I have.7. It made me want to help others who are in need.8. I learned to be patient every time I need to talk to the barangay officialof barangay Malinao and Poblacion, officials of DSWD and to theSanitary inspectors.9. I learned to thank God more for guiding me and for giving mesupportive parents.10. I realized that what I‘m doing isn‘t all about the award that I‘m goingto have instead I realized that it‘s all about helping those who are in need.11. The exposure with the indigent people made me decide to serve themasses through my leadership in the Interact Club of Narra.
  • 215. 215 Recommendations:1. The barangay officials should regularly monitor the condition of thewater pump machine and the quality of water it produces.2. A quarterly chlorination shall be conducted to insure the safeness of thewater consumed by the residents.3. I recommend the continuance of Girl Scout project and CGSMS in thearea to address the other needs of the people.

  • 239. 239How do I apply the learning’s gained from your spiritual readings in myproject? Treading the CGSMS path is arduous that requires virtue and skills tomake you go through it. There were lot of challenges you have to overcome,but reading God‘s word and with God‘s guidance the load becomes lighter forHe gave me the strength to get through all the hardships.I have a dream ; a big dream: to be an instrument of the almighty. His wordswere ―whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it unto Me.‖ This isthe challenge I took upon myself. Though over whelming I‘ll just take thesteps in my small way to do the task. I dream also of becoming the firstNarranian Senior Girl Scout to be on the Malacanang palace to receive theCGSMS Medal and be an inspiration to all my sisters in Girl Scouting in myhometown: I dream of becoming a spark that will kindle the spirit of desire tobe included in the lists of CGSMS awardees. To make my dreams come true,there are lot of things to be done and lot of things to get through. Every daywe are experiencing lot of trials, the trials that may make us feel weak, feelhopeless, but we must always remember that even though we are completelyladen and hopeless, God is always there to help us. We should alwaysremember to pray and ask for God‘s guidance. Through reading God‘s wordwe strengthen our faith, soul and body. Faith is our weapon against life‘shardships and problems along the way. The problems that we experience arefactors that may make us stronger if you will use positivity. We must alwaysremember that Lord our God is always there for us, whenever we need help

After the program we gave snacks for the Tagbanuas. We also gavedolls to the girls.

But heavy rainfalls whichpersisted for several days that resulted to massive flood hindered theplan. Many roads were destroyed in Narra specially the roads leading toMalinao. Many families from the barangay evacuated to the Poblacion‘sRamon V. Mitra Gymnasium. Their homes were overflowed with theflood and also their plants and domestic animals died. For the days oftheir stay in the gymnasium I frequently visit them together with myfather. We gave away the shirts which were left when I launched myCGSMS project and luckily mother had save many shirts maybe in Godswill never known before to be given away for the poor evacuees.. TheRotary Club of Narra, Rotary International and the Rotary Club ofPuerto Princessa donated goods for the affected families.On the second day there, I helped in the repacking for the distributionto the people on the gym which includes families from Panacan II andMalinao II. The repacked bags contain 5 kilos of rice, 5 cans of sardines,6 packs of noodles and some dried fish.

  • 248. 248I woke up early, excited for today‘s activity. Today is the visitation on myproject area. Because of the damages the strong rain had left, it‘s been a whilesince the last time we visited Malinao II. Mom, Dad and I, went to PanacanNational High School to pick up my fellow Girl Scouts who will accompanyme for the visitation. When we arrived on Malinao II, we went straight to thehouse of the Purok President, Mr. Wilfredo Batac. He gave us a warmwelcome at his home. I apologized for the delay of my visitation, after havinga talk with Kuya Wilfredo, we asked him to allow us to roam around histerritory. We found it hard to find the way to the tribal chieftain‘s house,because honestly we really don‘t know the right way. While finding our waywe encountered Kuya Wilfredo‘s grandson Justin. Justin is a very naughtyboy. We asked him if he could show us the way to the chief‘s house and hegranted our favor. Justin made us walk and walk for almost an hour; he evenmade us walk through muddy rice fields. Then one of my fellow Scoutasked,‖baka naman di na kami makauwi?‖, and then he answered, ―di kotalaga kayo papauwiin‖. Fear ran through my nerves, what if this kid is onlyfooling us, what if he really doesn‘t know where we are heading to. While
  • 249. 249walking I asked a woman if she knows where is Chief Lorenzo Ulosan‘shouse.When we arrived at Chief Lorenzo‘s house we caught him fixing his boat.While having a talk with Chief, he showed us an unfinished water pump; hesaid that the pump was never finished because of the salty water coming outof it. He said that my project would make a big difference on their everydaylives. Imagine, they need to climb up to the PALTUBIG everyday just to havewater for drinking, etc. after having a short talk with Chief, he showed ussome of their tribes musical instruments, it‘s nice to know their tribe haspreserved their culture for a long time. Chief Ulosan‘s grandson showed us ashorter way to Kuya Wilfredo‘s house. A felt a bit anger on Justin, imagine he made us walk for almost an hour even though he knew that there is a shorter way, but I couldn‘t get angry on him, his only a little boy. On our way we passed by a river. There, we sat and took our lunch. It‘s fun to watch the children having fun, swimming on the river, there were even little girls washing their clothes on the river, and The sad part is that the river was very dirty. After eating we gave the children some of our food. We continued our walk to Kuya Wilfredo‘s house. On the way, I gave Justin water on a 1.5 container, then Justin asked, ―akin nalang ‗to te?‖, I said yes, ―siguro ate
  • 250. 250 mayaman kayo nho?‖,I asked him why did he say so, ―kasi ate binibigay mo lang tong tubig sabay diba tong lalagyan mo, lalagyan diba to ng sprite‖,‖di ahh coke yan sya‖. At that moment I realized how important water is for them. I realized that my project would be a great help to them. My mom gave Justin a five peso coin, as a sign of our gratitude to him. I gave Justin the soft drink I was keeping on my back pack. ―ate kaw nalang magdala nito, baka sabihin nila gingnakaw ko to sa inyo‖. I felt pity on that little boy. I can‘t imagine how hard his life is. I brought Justin home. When my father arrived we waved good bye to the Batac family. On our way, we passed through some Tagbanua, they said they were heading to the Barangay Hall to have their synchronized meeting. We offered them a ride to the Hall. When we arrived there, Kapitan Tess was there, we left the Tagbanua‘s and waved good bye to the citizens of Malinao II. When we arrived on Poblacion we made a stop into an old play ground, my brothers and I used to play there when we were still little kids. My mom said that, that park would be their troop‘s project for the Magic Spot. We‘ve planned the things that we‘ll do to improve the park. After having the meeting we went straight to our homes.

My mom texted the Girl Scouts from her troop to join for today‘s visitation. My dad called some of his friends to borrow a vehicle for us, but all of them were busy. I went to Bahamas‘ house to pick her and Shaira up. When I arrived there Bahamma said that she thought that we already went off with out them. Shaira, Baham and I, recruited a tricycle towards the Municipal Hall. We waited there for a awhile. While we were waiting, we looked at the map of Narra, there we saw the different Barangay‘s of Narra including Malinao II. My dad came, he said that we could ride on the municipal vehicle, but it‘s not supposed to bring us on Malinao II, instead he‘s only going to drop us on the high way, because the vehicle is going to Barangay Aramaywan. While we were on the gasoline station the Girl Scouts of Panacan arrived. When we arrived on Malinao, the driver dropped us, we waited for a tricycle to take us on Purok Pagkakaisa. When we arrived there we saw Justine with some of his friends, while they were walking, one of his friend lose her balance and hit the ground, the girl started to cry.

When my mom and the other Girl scouts arrived, we went to the house of Ma‘am Deig, a teacher of Panacan National High School. While we were on our way we encountered a carabao. When we arrived on ma‘am Deig‘s house I realized that even though she is professional her life is not different from the other natives. After having a chat with Ma‘am Deig, we continued walking towards the river; there we will have our class. I asked my mom if I could pick up Justine and some of his friends.

When we arrived on the Purok President‘s house, there were only few Tagbanuas to join the meeting. Kuya Wilfredo, the Purok President, said that they haven‘t made a formal announcement that there would be a meeting, so the Tagbanuas whose houses are far from kuya Wilfredo‘s house are not able to join. Kuya Wilfredo said that he will reschedule the meeting on April 11, so they could inform the natives whose houses are far so they will be able to join the meeting next time.

Ate Imelda and I, made a chlorinesolution, after removing the top part of the pump,my Dad, Capt. Tess, Kgwd. Miinda, Ate Imelda,Kuya Wilfredo and I poured the solution to thewater pump. After chatting with the natives forwhile we headed home, excited for the Turnover Ceremony this coming Sunday.
  • 261. 261June 12, 2011 Look how fast time flew, It’s already been 8 months since I started my project at Malinao II. Today I’ll be having my project’s turnover ceremony. My co- Senior Girl Scouts and I waited at our schools gate for Tita daisy, Tita Norma and Tita Tess to arrive. It was almost lunch time when they arrived so we decided to have lunch. When we were done eating we decided to go traight to my project area. I took a ride with the evaluators but before we went straight to Malinao II to drove through Tita Flo’s house to fetch her, she was my Tita during my elementary years. While we were on our way to Purok Pakaka-isa Malinao II, the evaluators asked me some questions about my project. When we arrived in Purok Pagkaka-isa, we walked for a while to reach my project, when we were finally there, we sat for a while to wait for Capt. Tess, the Barangay Captain of Malinao to arrive. While we were waiting the evaluators asked me more questions. The evaluators were pleased to meet Tiyong Ulosan, the tribal Chieftain, and Justin, the boy who guided us towards Tiyong Ulosan’s house. Even though Capt. Tess wasn’t there yet, we started the program. While we were having the program Capt. Tess finally arrived. During the program I was mixed with emotions, I was very nervous, sad because this would be the end of my project but I’m also happy because my project was successful. After the turnover ceremony, the evaluators and all guests of the turnover ceremony were given young coconut for refreshment. The program ended well, and we headed home safe and happy.

  • 267. 267Tita Norma ValenciaMagandang hapon sa inyong lahat.Ayon kay Dimples. nalulungkot daw siya dahil kasi before mayroong isang bata ngnamatay. Parang at one point sinasabi at natanong ni Libert na ―may pakinabang pa kayaitong proyekto ko eh may namatay na?‖ So sa ganung klase na kaisipan makikita mo natalagang napaka-seryoso ng bata and then nakita ko din sa kanya na iyong dream niyatalagang naka focus siya dun sa pangarap. Ngayon marami na kasing nasabi tungkol saproyekto parang katulad kanina sabi ni Day Care Worker na si CristyDiaz, sabi nya sanadaw maging ihemplo at huwaran si Dimples. Ako nga habang pinapakingan ko si Ma‘amMagdalena Grino, parang pumasok sa isip ko na ―si Dimples ay parang isang bituin nanagbibigay ng liwanag dito sa inyong lugar‖ sa pamamagitan ng pagkakawang-gawa.Ang aming panalangin tulad ng sabi ni Ma‘am Tess Marcial, n asana ito po ay simulalamang, na sana itong tubig na ito ay makarating hanggang doon sa dulo tulad ngpangako ni Kgwd. Crispin Lumba, katulong si kapitan at sa tulong na din ng inyongmunicipal leader ni si Mayor Clarito Demaala. Sana po ay magpatuloy hanggang lahat aymaabot na ng tubig at sana habang nagpapatuloy ito. Isa pa rin itong pangarap na sanamaging katotohanan ang pangarapp na ito.Maraming salamat po at congratulations.

Sa pagkakataong ito aymalugod ko pong ipinahahatid sa inyo na this is the first time dito sa Narra na nagkaroon ngCGSMS aspirant at sa all over Palawan sa pangalawang pagkakataon na lumbas ng PuertoPrincesa na magkaroon kung sakasakali ng Chief Girl Scout Medalists. Ang una po ay tagaBrookes Point, hindi na po yun naulit for how many years more than 15 years. Karamihan pokasi ay taga Puerto at kung papalarin po si Dimples na makapasa sa ating mga evaluators aypangalawa siya makakatangap ng award. Pero ito po ay hindi tungkol sa medalya. Angmithiin po ng Girl Scout ay hindi lamang na masabitan ng medalya, kundi ay upangmakarating sa inyo ang tulong ng tinatawag na community service. Sana ay may kasunod pasi Dimples. Tuwing dumadating ang mga reports ni Dimples at ito‘y binabasako,nararamdaman ko ang hirap niya, yung layo ng nilalakad nila lalo na yung huli na maypicture na nag-iisip kung dito ba itatayo o ililipat, at nagkaroon pa ng tampuhan na hindimakakaabot sa kanila yung tubig. Nagtext sa kin si Dimples sabi niya Tita Daisymagkakaroon ata ako ng problema sa project ko. Ngayon pa na patapos na, ang sabi ko withprayers Dimples matatapus yang project mo. Muli sana samahan niyo kaming manalangin namarami pang Girl Scouts ang katulad ni Dimples na tumutulong sa mga kababayan natingnaghihirap. Sa pagkakataong ito ay gusto ko pong palakpakan natin ang mga magulan niDimples. Sabi nga ni tatay kanina doon pa daw yung igiban nila ng tubig, ngayon dawmalapit nalang pihit pihit nalang sila, malaking bagay na daw yun sa kanila. Kaya daw nilangmabuhay na sira ang kalsada, kaya nila na walang ilaw pero hindi na raw nila kaya pagwalang tubig. Sa muli iniiwan ko po sa inyo ang hamon ng Girl Scout na pag-ingatan niyo atmahalin ang proyektong iiwan ni Dimples. Muli magandang hapon po.

Sagot niya ―gustoko talaga magsali ma‘am‖ parang 6 or 7 years palang siya noon at nasa grade 2 palang siya, Samurang edad nya ay talagang nandun na yung desire niya for scouting. Hindi ko naman siyabinigo, kahit hindi ako ang teacher niya talagang inalalayan ko siya. Sabi ko, ―sige ha sali ka,‖ sosimula na un sumasali na siya ng camping yearly hangang high school. Talagang napakabait na bataniyan kasi naging teacher niya din ako nung grade 5 siya. Pero nung nasa primary palang siya aylagi niyang akong nilalapitan at parang anak ko narin siya.

  • 308. 308In every society on earth, water and educationare closely inter-related. Although education is not
  • 309. 309vital for our existence as water is, it is of great importance. We need education for our societies to prosper, to better understand eachother and the world, for our personal development and for many other reasonsThe intimate relationship between water and education is based on the need forinformation: We need to be educated about water in order to know how to deal withall kinds of water-related problems. In poor countries, communities also need toknow how to best manage the systems once they are implemented. Information is thefirst step to solutions and more generally to make us aware of the need for improvedwater management in the world.We also need water to be able to educate our children. Providing clean water andadequate sanitation in schools improves community health standards and enableschildren, especially girls, to attend classes instead of having to walk far to fetch water.Water is a chemical substance with the chemical formula H2O. Its molecule containsone oxygen and two hydrogen atoms connected by covalent bonds. Water is a liquidat ambient conditions, but it often co-exists on Earth with its solid state, and gaseousstate.In typical usage, the term water refers to its liquid state, but the substance also has asolid state, ice, and a gaseous state, water vapor. About 71 percent of the Earths surfaceis covered by water, mostly in oceans and other large water bodies .Clean drinking water is essential to humans and other life forms. Access to safedrinking water has improved steadily and substantially over the last decades inalmost every part of the world. Some observers have estimated that by 2025 morethan half of the world population will be facing water-based vulnerability. A recentreport (November 2009) suggests that by 2030, in some developing regions of theworld, water demand will exceed supply by 50%. Water plays an important role inthe world economy, as it functions as a solvent for a wide variety of chemicalsubstances and facilitates industrial cooling and transportation. Approximately 70%of freshwater is consumed by agriculture.The presence of water on Earth depends on various factors, including the Earthslocation in the Solar System. Water moves continually through a cycle of evaporationor transpiration, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea. Winds carrywater vapor over land at the same rate as runoff into the sea. Some water is trappedfor varying periods in ice caps, glaciers, aquifers, or in lakes, sometimes providingfreshwater for life on land. Water is a good solvent for a wide variety of substances.
  • 310. 310Humans use water for many purposes, including drinking,cooking, cleaning, heating, and cooling. We find it valuable for scientificexperimentation and industrial processes as well as for agriculture. In addition, weuse water for various sports and recreational activities. In various religions, water isconsidered a purifier in an internal, spiritual sense as well as in an external, physicalsense. Also, the Jordan River, Ganges River, and other bodies of water are consideredsacred by people of certain religions.Yet, water pollution, overconsumption, and uneven distribution have resulted inshortages of clean freshwater in many parts of the world. These shortages have inturn led to disputes between peoples of different nations.Tastes and odors of waterGiven that water can dissolve many different substances, it acquires different tastesand odors. In fact, humans and animals have developed senses to be able to evaluatethe potability of water. Animals generally dislike the taste of salty sea water and theputrid swamps and favor the purer water of a mountain spring or aquifer. The tasteadvertised in spring water or mineral water derives from the minerals dissolved in it,as pure H2O is tasteless. The "purity" of spring and mineral water refers to theabsence of toxins, pollutants, and harmful microbes. Water fit for human consumption is called drinking water or potable water. Waterthat is not potable can be made potable by various methods, including: filtration, toremove particulate impurities; chemical or heat treatment, to kill bacteria; anddistillation, to separate water from impurities by vaporization and condensation. Itshould be noted, however, that some solutes in potable water are acceptable and evendesirable for taste enhancement and to provide needed electrolytes.Water that is not fit for drinking but is not harmful if used for swimming or bathing issometimes called "safe water" or "safe for bathing." Chlorine, a skin and mucousmembrane irritant, is used to make water safe for bathing or drinking. Its use ishighly technical and is usually monitored by government regulations (typically 1 partper million (ppm) for drinking water, and 1-2 ppm of chlorine not yet reacted withimpurities for bathing water).Drinking waterAbout 70 percent of the fat-free mass of the human body is made of water. Tofunction properly, the body requires between one and seven liters of water per day toavoid dehydration; the precise amount depends on the level of activity, temperature,humidity, and other factors. Most of this is ingested through foods or beverages otherthan drinking straight water. It is not clear how much water intake is needed byhealthy people, though most experts agree that 8–10 glasses ofwater (approximately 2 liters) daily is the minimum to maintain
  • 311. 311proper hydration.[17] For those who have healthy kidneys, it is rather difficult to drink too much water, but (especially in warm humid weather and whileexercising) it is dangerous to drink too little. People can drink far more water thannecessary while exercising, however, putting them at risk of water intoxication, whichcan be fatal. The "fact" that a person should consume eight glasses of water per daycannot be traced back to a scientific source. There are other myths such as the effect ofwater on weight loss and constipation that have been dispelled. Original recommendation for water intake in 1945 by the Food and NutritionBoard of the National Research Council read: "An ordinary standard for diversepersons is 1 milliliter for each calorie of food. Most of this quantity is contained inprepared foods." The latest dietary reference intake report by the United StatesNational Research Council in general recommended (including food sources): 2.7liters of water total for women and 3.7 liters for men. Specifically, pregnant andbreastfeeding women need additional fluids to stay hydrated. According to theInstitute of Medicine—who recommend that, on average, women consume 2.2 litersand men 3.0 liters—this is recommended to be 2.4 liters (approx. 9 cups) for pregnantwomen and 3 liters (approx. 12.5 cups) for breastfeeding women, since an especiallylarge amount of fluid is lost during nursing. Also noted is that normally, about 20 percent of water intake comes fromfood, while the rest comes from drinking water and beverages (caffeinated included).Water is excreted from the body in multiple forms: through urine, feces, sweating,and exhalation of water vapor in the breath. With physical exertion and heatexposure, water loss will increase and daily fluid needs may increase as well.How much should you drink every day?Water is essential to good health, yet needs vary by individual. These guidelinescan help ensure you drink enough fluids.How much water should you drink each day? Its a simple question with no easyanswers. Studies have produced varying recommendations over the years, but intruth, your water needs depend on many factors, including your health, how activeyou are and where you live.Although no single formula fits everyone, knowing more about your bodys need forfluids will help you estimate how much water to drink each day.Health benefits of water
  • 312. 312Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you dont haveenough water in your body to carry out normal functions. Even mild dehydration candrain your energy and make you tired.How much water do you need?Every day you lose water through your breath, perspiration, urine and bowelmovements. For your body to function properly, you must replenish its water supplyby consuming beverages and foods that contain water.So how much water does the average, healthy adult livingneed? In general, doctorsrecommend 8 or 9 cups. Here are the most common ways of calculating that amount:Replacement approach. The average urine output for adults is about 1.5 liters (6.3cups) a day. You lose close to an additional liter (about 4 cups) of water a day throughbreathing, sweating and bowel movements. Food usually accounts for 20 percent ofyour total fluid intake, so if you consume 2 liters of water or other beverages a day (alittle more than 8 cups) along with your normal diet, you will typically replace yourlost fluids.Eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Another approach to water intake is the "8 x 8rule" — drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day (about 1.9 liters). The rule couldalso be stated, "Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day," as all fluids count towardthe daily total. Although the approach really isnt supported by scientific evidence,many people use this easy-to-remember rule as a guideline for how much water andother fluids to drink.Dietary recommendations. The Institute of Medicine advises that men consume roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups)of total beverages a day and women consume 2.2 liters(about 9 cups) of total beverages a day.
  • 313. 313Even apart from the above approaches, if you drink enoughfluid so that you rarely feel thirsty and produce 1.5 liters (6.3 cups) or more ofcolorless or slightly yellow urine a day, your fluid intake is probably adequate. Ifyoure concerned about your fluid intake, check with your doctor or a registereddietitian. He or she can help you determine the amount of water thats best for you.THE IMPORTANCE OF WATER AND HUMAN HEALTH"Im dying of thirst!"Well, you just might. It sounds so simple. H20. Two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen. But this substance betterknown as water, is the most essential element, next to air, to our survival. Water truly is everywhere, still most take it for granted.Water makes up more than two thirds of the weight of the human body, and withoutit, we would die in a few days. The human brain is made up of 95% water, blood is82% and lungs 90%. A mere 2% drop in our bodys water supply can trigger signs ofdehydration: fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficultyfocusing on smaller print, such as a computer screen. (Are you having trouble readingthis? Drink up!) Mild dehydration is also one of the most common causes of daytimefatigue. An estimated seventy-five percent of Americans have mild, chronicdehydration. Pretty scary statistic for a developed country where water is readilyavailable through the tap or bottle.Water is important to the mechanics of the human body. The body cannot workwithout it, just as a car cannot run without gas and oil. In fact, all the cell and organfunctions made up in our entire anatomy and physiology depend on water for theirfunctioning.Water serves as a lubricantWater forms the base for salivaWater forms the fluids that surround the joints.Water regulates the body temperature, as the coolingand heating is distributed through perspiration.Water helps to alleviate constipation by moving foodthrough the intestinal tract and thereby eliminatingwaste- the best detox agent.Regulates metabolismIn addition to the daily maintenance of our bodies, water also plays a key role in the prevention of disease.Drinking eight glasses of water daily can decreasethe risk of colon cancer by 45%, bladder cancer by
  • 314. 31450% and it can potentially even reduce the risk of breast cancer. And those are just afew examples! As you follow other links on our website, you can read more in depthabout how water can aid in the prevention and cure of many types of diseases,ailments and disorders that affect the many systems of our bodies.Since water is such an important component to our physiology, it would make sensethat the quality of the water should be just as important as the quantity. Drinkingwater should always be clean and free of contaminants to ensure proper health andwellness.According to recent news and reports, most tap and well water in the U.S. are not safefor drinking due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution. Toxic bacteria,chemicals and heavy metals routinely penetrate and pollute our natural water sourcesmaking people sick while exposing them to long term health consequences such asliver damage, cancer and other serious conditions. We have reached the point whereall sources of our drinking water, including municipal water systems, wells, lakes,rivers, and even glaciers, contain some level of contamination. Even some brands ofbottled water have been found to contain high levels of contaminants in addition toplastics chemical leaching from the bottle. A good water filtration system installed inyour home is the only way to proactively monitor and ensure the quality and safetyof your drinking water. Reverse osmosis water purification systems can remove 90-99% of all contaminants from city and well water to deliver healthy drinking waterfor you and your family.WHEN AND WHO NEEDS TO DRINK MORE WATER?In similar articles on our site, it was stated that the average person needs about 8 glasses of water per day. But that isjust an average. Some people need more, and some people
  • 315. 315need less. However, there area also times when the body temporarily needs more water.There are also certain times when people may need more water than usual, whether itis a health condition, or an environmental concern. Under these circumstances, morewater should be drank:When on a high protein dietDid you know that uric acid in meat could cause gout? That said, people on a highprotein diet require more water than a regular eater, as the water will flush out thingslike uric acid, caused by the extra protein. Another risk of high protein diets that canbe combated with water is that, if youre not eating carbohydrates, your body breaksdown fat cells and then produces a buildup of toxic chemical compounds, calledketones in your blood. When there are too many ketones in your blood, your bodyeliminates them in your urine. Eliminate too many ketones, and you also eliminatetoo much water. Without replacing it, you can suffer severe dehydration and the riskof abnormal heart rhythms.When on a high fiber dietConstipation can be an uncomfortable side effect of high fiber intake. That is becausefiber, although good for your health, can absorb fluid from your intestines. Drinkingfluids help prevent constipation in those who are eating high fiber.Having an illness that causes vomiting or diarrheaVomiting and diarrhea are signs of dehydration. Drinking more water will keep thebody hydrated during this illness, and also prevent that vomiting and diarrhea thatgoes along with it. It is suggested that someone with these symptoms, most likelyfrom the flu or another virus, to drink 2-3 quarts of water per day.Are being more physically activeThe more active someone is, the more they will perspire. When you exercise, yourbody builds up heat, and sweat brings your body temperature back to normal. Assweat evaporates from your skin, your body cools. But, throughthe cooling process, can lose four cups of water every hourduring exercise. As a result, more water is lost. Drinking more
  • 316. 316fluids will combat that water loss by replenishing the body.Whether this activity is during a workout or during work, keepdrinking.Are exposed to warm or hot conditionsAs people are exposed to warmer conditions, their body temperatures will rise as areaction to cool the body, resulting in more perspiration. This can happen whetherthey are being active or not. Without proper fluid intake, this change in climate couldleave people having the uncomfortable effects of dehydration. That is not somethingsomeone on a vacation wants to experience! Carry around a water bottle while inwarmer conditions. Also, warmer conditions could be in a workplace. If that is thecase, always make sure that you are paying a visit to the water cooler, or have a waterbottle at your workstation.When it comes to your health, the quality of your drinking water is just as importantas the quantity.According to recent news and reports, most tap and well water are not safe fordrinking due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution. Toxic bacteria,chemicals and heavy metals routinely penetrate and pollute our natural water sourcesmaking people sick while exposing them to long term health consequences such asliver damage, cancer and other serious conditions. We have reached the point whereall sources of our drinking water, including municipal water systems, wells, lakes,rivers, and even glaciers, contain some level of contamination. Even some brands ofbottled water have been found to contain high levels of contaminants in addition toplastics chemical leaching from the bottle.WATER AND PREGNANCYWhile it is always a good idea to keep the body hydrated, there are certain timeswhen changes in the body call for more water. One of these times is duringpregnancy. Water can be the answer to alleviating many side effects of pregnancy, aidin preparing the body for these physiological changes, and just overall make mommyand baby healthier.Water is an important part of pregnancy. The fluid acts as the bodys transportationsystem, and carries nutrients through the blood to the baby. Also, flushing out thesystem and diluting urine with water prevents urinary tract infections, which arecommon in pregnancy.
  • 317. 317Perhaps the biggest reason to drink waterhowever is to keep the body hydrated.Dehydration in pregnant women can be veryserious. Hormones (gotta love thosehormones!) change the way women storewater during pregnancy, so they begin toretain water, and drinking plenty of watercombats that. Much of that water is used inthe amniotic sack. Amniotic fluid alone needsto replenish itself every hour by usingroughly a cup of water stored in the body.Replacing that water will insure the fetus isprotected within the womb.Since the blood volume increases to nearlydouble by the eighth month of pregnancy, itis necessary to drink even more water tocompensate. Thicker blood can lead tohypertension and other cardiovascularproblems, as discussed on other areas of thisWebsite.Because dehydration can cause contractions, lack of water in the third trimester canalso cause premature labor. Premature labor can have many health risks to thenewborn baby. However, some cases of premature labor have been stopped just bygiving the mother enough water to re-hydrate her body.Pregnant women should be sure to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water eachday, which is in addition to the normal intake of other recommended foods. Thebenefits of drinking water during pregnancy include healthier skin, less acne,washing away of unnecessary sodium, less chance for pre-term labor or miscarriageand better bowel movements. Drinking water can, believe it or not, also help preventthat nausea known as morning sickness, as doctors recommend drinking plenty offluid between meals.Drinking water for health benefits of the mother and baby are evident. Doctors in factask mothers to steer clear of diuretics like caffeine and alcohol, so water is the obviousalternative for fluid intake. Also, since doctors often prescribe exercise in pregnantwomen, fluids will be lost through perspiration. As we know, pregnant or not, thosefluids also need to be replaced.Now that we know how important it is to drink water during pregnancy, lets take alook at some contaminants that when found in excess in water supplies, could havedevastating effects. There has been some evidence that chlorinated tap water cancause miscarriages and other problems with pregnancy. Nitrate can cause blue babysyndrome and lead can cause slow mental development. Pharmaceutical drugs foundin tap water can affect the growth and development of the fetus. That said, since
  • 318. 318water is so crucial to not only the mother, but the new baby aswell, it is vital to make sure drinking water is safe!WATER AND SENIOR CITIZENSAs we age, the balance between our need for water and our thirst for water shifts. Infact, the less water an older person drinks, the less thirsty they become, leaving themopen to the risk of serious dehydration and other complications.Further, confusion over the difference between hunger and thirst intensifies over theyears, making it all the more important to conscientiously drink adequate amounts ofwater throughout the day. At the very minimum, one should consume one cup ofwater for every 20 pounds of body weight daily, thats around 6-8 glasses for theaverage person.Exercise and warm weather both call for additional water intake to replace fluids lostthrough excessive perspiration. So, all those senior citizens who head south forretirement will need to increase water intake! Increased fiber intake among seniors,which is usually recommended for older people to aid with constipation and otherhealth concerns, also increases the need for water.The human body is at least 50% water, of which 2-3 quarts are lost on a daily basis.Even bones are over 20% water! Aside from replenishing what is lost in order tohydrate the blood and tissues, water also lubricates joints, regulates temperature, andmoistens the lungs to allow for breathing. Inadequate water intake over time preventsthese processes from occurring, leading to arthritis, sore muscles, heavy breathing,and a higher body temperature. This means that not drinking enough water over timecan result in more severe effects at an older age, which means preventable problemsduring what should be the golden years.Senior citizens are at particular risk for dehydration because their kidney function hasdiminished to some degree. Symptoms of dehydration, which can cause death inextreme circumstances, include confusion, drowsiness, labored speech, dry mouth,and sunken eyeballs. Side effects for seniors who do not drink enough water,however, extend far beyond dehydration. Even short-term water deprivation hasbeen known to cause chronic pain. Over time, lack of water causes loss of muscletone, excess weight gain, slow metabolism, increased toxicity, and even organ failure.Other negative effects include arthritis, dry skin, migraines, hypertension, digestivecomplications, and persistent constipation.In order to maintain health, the kidneys must excrete a minimum of ten ounces ofwaste per day. When water is not available, there is nothing present in which todissolve the bodys waste products (uric acid and urea) for expulsion. As a result,they build up within the body, leading to kidney stones, while putting additionalstrain on the kidneys to find adequate liquid with which to expel toxins.
  • 319. 319Considering the abundance of water in our daily lifestyles, thefact that most senior citizens are consistently dehydrated tosome degree is alarming. All foods are partly composedof water; fruits and vegetables are over 75% H2O, and even bread is more than 30%water. Yet with the abundance of water in their diet, the average senior citizen stillrequires over two-and-a-half quarts of pure water each and every day to maintaingood health.WATER AND BEAUTIFUL SKINIts no wonder that spas across the nation are turning toward filtered water system.Many spa owners claim that regular tap water contains bacteria and minerals whichcan clog pores. Over time, this can mean dull skin.Experts say the cleaner the water, the better it can clean. The purer the water, themore pure the skin. (Seems like a no-brainer.) Filters help weed out things likechlorine and heavy metal. The cleaner, softer water, they say, attributes to not onlyclearer, but alsosofter skin. Heavy water can irritate skin, even making it red. Also, reverse-osmosisfilters make water molecules smaller, which can penetrate and hydrate the skinbetter. According to an MSN Lifestyle article, Diane Somerville (a Hollywoodfacialist) swears by it.But, while spa-going is a luxurious way to spend the afternoon, its not practical foreveryones wallet, everyday. With a filtered water system at home, cleansing the facein your own sink can have the same radiant effect on your skin.Some critics say that these metals arent dangerous to the skin. But- how can aglowing face be wrong? So, perhaps the search over. The fountain of youth could bespringing at your home, after all.The trend of filtered water aiding in skin care has also been bottled up, beyondfaucets. Upscale bottled water brand Evian sells water sprays for the skin. They claimit can refresh and rejuvenate the skin. This product appeals to jetsetters or officeworkers whose face and skin may get dry from the cabin or cubicle air, as well as toathletes to soothe the sun or cool a perspired face.So, the word from spa owners to water bottlers is that filtered water is far better forkeeping a beautiful complexion. And- we also cant forget that being hydrated alwayshelps skin glow as well. From inside out, filtered water is "in for your skin!"
  • 320. 320Water means life and prosperity. Clean, it is one of themost beautiful substances in the world. Dirty, it is one ofthe most revolting.Though it is a blue planet, water is a limited and finite resource. Less than 2.5% of the water can be used and reused asfreshwater. Less than half of that is readily – or with someeffort – accessible. And that which is accessible for drinking water supply, isunevenly and unfairly distributed or shared. Today, nearly 900 million people lackaccess to safe drinking water. For these people, the lack of access to what some call abasic human right impedes their ability to come out of poverty and live healthy andproductive lives.Water is the integral fabric in the quilt of life. The Earth‘s ecosystems, societies, andindividuals need it. Without it, food security, human health, energy supplies, andindustrial production would be unobtainable. Plants, wildlife, and their ecosystemsneed water. Shortages and poor management can lead to loss of biodiversity andagricultural production, increase in malnutrition and disease, reduced economicgrowth, social instability and conflict.Most of the cities where large numbers of people live without taps are cities withplentiful water supplies. And in cities with water shortages, there are rarely anyrestrictions on water use for the rich. Water for household use represents only about8% to 10% of total water consumption. Industry and agriculture consume themajority.Household Water Treatment and Safe StoragePotable water is vital to well-being. But often water quality is sufficient and not safeto drink also due to recontamination during transport or storage.Household water treatment and safe storage technologies are low cost, yet can make abig difference to ensure that the water remains safe until it is consumed and thereforereduce diarrhoeal diseases.Household water treatment and safe storage can enable those who lack access toimproved water sources, and those with improved but unsafe sources, to assumeresponsibility of their own drinking water safety. Recent research demonstrates thatsimple, low-cost interventions at the household and community levels (e.g. schools,health centres, refugee camps) can dramatically improve the quality of water andreduce the risks of diarrhoeal disease.Combining household water treatment and safe storage with the promotion ofhealthy hygiene behaviours leads to an even greater reduction in diseasetransmission.
  • 321. 321A wide range of water treatment options can be applied(primarily) at the point-of-use to enhance water quality,among them boiling, filtration, chemical, and solar disinfection.Safe storage refers to techniques that minimize the risk ofrecontamination before consumption.The International Network to Promote Household Water Storage (HWTS)collaborates with approximately 120 organizations, ministries, and donors, many ofwhich are also WSSCC partners.

  • 328. 328Water used for drinking and cooking should be free ofpathogenic (disease causing) microorganisms thatcause such illnesses as typhoid fever, dysentery, cholera,and gastroenteritis. Whether a person contracts these diseasesfrom water depends on the type of pathogen, the numberof organisms in the water (density), the strength of the organism (virulence), thevolume of water ingested, and the susceptibility of the individual. Purification ofdrinking water containing pathogenic microorganisms requires specific treatmentcalled disinfection.Although several methods eliminate disease-causing microorganisms in water,chlorination is the most commonly used. Chlorination is effective against manypathogenic bacteria, but at normal dosage rates it does not kill all viruses, cysts, orworms. When combined with filtration, chlorination is an excellent way to disinfectdrinking water supplies.This fact sheet discusses the requirements of a disinfection system, how to test thebiological quality of drinking water, how to calculate the amount of chlorine needed ina particular situation, chlorination equipment, by-products of disinfection, andalternative disinfection methods.Chlorination is the process of adding the element chlorine to water as amethod of water purification to make it fit for human consumption as drinking water.Water which has been treated with chlorine is effective in preventing the spread ofwaterborne disease.The chlorination of public drinking supplies was originally met with resistance, aspeople were concerned about the health effects of the practice. The use of chlorine hasgreatly reduced the prevalence of waterborne disease as it is effective against almostall bacteria and viruses, as well as amoeba/Chlorine treatmentChlorine readily combines with chemicals dissolved in water, microorganisms, smallanimals, plant material, tastes, odors, and colors. These components "use up" chlorineand comprise the chlorine demand of the treatment system. It is important to addsufficient chlorine to the water to meet the chlorine demand and provide residualdisinfection.The chlorine that does not combine with other components in the water is free(residual) chlorine, and the breakpoint is the point at which free chlorine is availablefor continuous disinfection. An ideal system supplies free chlorine at a concentrationof 0.3-0.5 mg/l. Simple test kits, most commonly the DPD colorimetric test kit (socalled because diethyl phenylene diamine produces the color reaction), are availablefor testing breakpoint and chlorine residual in private systems. The kit must test freechlorine, not total chlorine.Contact time with microorganisms
  • 329. 329The contact (retention) time (Table 1) in chlorination isthat period between introduction of the disinfectant and when the water is used. A long interaction betweenchlorine and the microorganisms results in an effectivedisinfection process. Contact time varies with chlorineconcentration, the type of pathogens present, pH, and temperature of the water. Thecalculation procedure is given below.Contact time must increase under conditions of low water temperature or high pH(alkalinity). Complete mixing of chlorine and water is necessary, and often a holdingtank is needed to achieve appropriate contact time. In a private well system, theminimum-size holding tank is determined by multiplying the capacity of the pump by10. For example, a 5-gallons-per-minute (gpm) pump requires a 50-gallon holdingtank. Pressure tanks are not recommended for this purpose since they usually have acombined inlet/outlet and all the water does not pass through the tank.An alternative to the holding tank is a long length of coiled pipe to increase contactbetween water and chlorine. Scaling and sediment build-up inside the pipe make thismethod inferior to the holding tank.Table 1. Calculating Contact Timeminutes required = K / chlorine residual (mg/l) K values to determine chlorine contact time Highest Lowest Water Temperature (degrees F) pH > 50 45 < 40 6.5 4 5 6 7.0 8 10 12 7.5 12 15 18 8.0 16 20 24 8.5 20 25 30 9.0 24 30 36To calculate contact time, one should use the highest pH and lowest watertemperature expected. For example, if the highest pH anticipated is 7.5 and the lowestwater temperature is 42 °F, the "K" value (from the table below) to use in the formula is15. Therefore, a chlorine residual of 0.5 mg/l necessitates 30 minutes contact time. Aresidual of 0.3 mg/l requires 50 minutes contact time for adequate disinfection.CHLORINATION GUIDELINES
  • 330. 330Chlorine solutions lose strength while standing or when exposed to air or sunlight. Make fresh solutionsfrequently to maintain necessary residual.Maintain a free chlorine residual of 0.3-0.5 mg/l after a 10 minute contact time. Measure the residual frequently.Once the chlorine dosage is increased to meet greater demand, do not decrease it.Locate and eliminate the source of contamination to avoid continuous chlorination. If awater source is available that does not require disinfection, use it.Keep records of pertinent information concerning the chlorination system.Types of chlorine used in disinfectionPublic water systems use chlorine in the gaseous form, which is considered toodangerous and expensive for home use. Private systems use liquid chlorine (sodiumhypochlorite) or dry chlorine (calcium hypochlorite). To avoid hardness deposits onequipment, manufacturers recommend using soft, distilled, or demineralized waterwhen making up chlorine solutions.

They practice shifting cultivation of upland rice, which is considered a divinegift, and are known for their rice wine ritual called pagdiwata. Central Tagbanwas are foundin the western and eastern coastal areas of central Palawan. Shifting cultivation of uplandrice is part of their cultural and economic practices. Rice is considered a divine gift and arefermented to make rice wine, which they use in Pagdiwata, or rice wine ritual. The cult ofthe dead is the key to the religious system of the Tagbanwa. They believe in several deitiesfound in the natural environment. Their language and alphabet, practice of kaingin andcommon belief in soul-relatives are part of their culture.[1]This group are excellent in basketry and wood carving. In addition, they are also famousfor their beautifully crafted body accessories. Their combs, bracelets, necklaces and ankletsare usually made of wood, beads, brass and copper. [The Tagbanuas of PalawanThe term "Tagbanua" - also spelled "Tagbanwa" and "Tagbanuwa" - may have beenderived from "taga" meaning "people from" and "banua" meaning "countryside," andtherefore means "people from the inland area". The Tagbanua are the most widelydistributed group on Palawan Island, Philippines. They occupy areas in the northern,central, and southern parts of the island, particularly the eastern and the western coastalarea, the near-coastal plains and the valleys of central Palawan. To the north of the mainTagbanua communities live the small and
  • 337. 337dwindling Palawan group known as Ken-uy, and the southern highlands dwellersknown as the Palawan. Tagbanua is also the language used by this ethnic tribe.HistoryThe Tagbanua may be said to have undergone three main historical periods: theindigenous period, during which there were protohistoric contacts and trade withHindu-Indonesian culture; the Muslim period, which included contacts with thesultanates of Borneo, and the Muslims of Sulu and Mindanao; and the Spanish,American, and contemporary periods. According to folk history, the Tagbanua hadan early relationship with Brunei, with the first sultan of Brunyu, from the placecalled Burnay. Their formal history begins with the Spanish colonization of thePhilippines. In 1521 Magellans ships docked in Palawan for provisions, andAntonio Pigafetta recorded that the Tagbanua practiced the ritual of blood compact,cultivated their fields, hunted with blowpipes and thick wooden arrows, valuedbrass rings and chains, bells, knives, and copper wire for binding fish hooks, raisedlarge and very tame cocks which they pitted against one another and laid bets on,and distilled rice wine.In the 19th century, the Tagbanua continued to believe in their native gods,specifically in four gods. The first, the lord of the heavens, was called Magnisda orNagabacaban. The god of the sea was named Poco and was deemed a benevolentspirit. His help was invoked in times of illness. The third was the god of the earthnamed Sedumunadoc, whose favor was sought in order to have a good harvest. Thefourth was called Tabiacoud, who lived, in the deep bowels of the earth.For these gods, the Tagbanua celebrated a big feast each year, right after harvest.The babaylan (shaman) called for the people to converge at the seashore, carryingfood offering of all kinds. The babaylan took the chickens and roosters brought forthe ceremony, and hung them by their legs on tree branches, killing them by beatingwith a stick. They were allowed only one blow for each animal, and those whosurvive went free, never to be harmed again, because Polo, the sea god, took themunder his protection. The fowl that died were seasoned, cooked and eaten. Aftereating, they danced and drank rice wine. At midnight, as Buntala, a heavenly body,passsed the meridian, the babaylan entered the sea waist dipped, all the whiledancing and pushing a raft made of bamboo, which had offering on it. If theoffering was returned to the shore by wves and winds, ot meant the sea god refusedthe peoples offering. But if the raft disappeared, there was rejoicing. Their offeringwas accepted and their year would be a happy one.
  • 338. 338With the end of Spanish colonial domination and the entry of the United Stats as thenew colonial administrators, change came to the island of Palawan, and to theTagbanua. In 1904, Iwahig became the site of a penal colony, which displaced theTagbanua as it expanded. In 1910, the Americans put up a reservation for theTagbanua. In succeeding years, internal migration from the Visayan islands andfrom Luzon, the dominance of the Christian religion, and the absorption of theisland into economic and political mainstream marginalized the Tagbanua,especially those who had been fully acculturated.Visual Arts and CraftThe traditional costumes of the Tagbanua were fashioned from the bark of trees,particularly the salugin. The preparation of this bark was unique. After being felled,the tree would be cut around the trunk, the outer bark stripped off to expose theinner layer. A mallet would beat the layer, until it is soft to hang loose from the bole.This is washed and dried under the sun. In the past, menfolk wore simpleloincloths, supported by a woven rattan waistband called ambalad, while womenwore only brief wraparound skirts made from bark. The Tagbanua later adopt somearticles of Muslim clothing. At present, while many Tagbanua still wear theirtraditional apparel, western-type clothing has found its way among the people.In the past, when both men and women wore their hair long, they filled andblackened their teeth, and carved earplugs from the hardwood bantilinaw. TheTagbanua also carved wooden combs and bracelets. They strung bead necklaces tobe used in covering womens necks. Anklets of copper and brass wire were alsocrafted and worn by women.Baskets and woodcarvings are the more notable products of Tagbanua artistic craftstoday. They excel in the number of designs which they apply to their tingkop(harvest basket) made of hard strip bamboo. These baskets are made if blackenedand natural bamboo, which makes the designs, stand out. The cone-shaped type ofbasket is another fine example of Tagbanua skilled artistry. Using black and naturalcolor designs outside, the center of the cone has the bamboo strip skived slightlysmaller, creating even holes for the screen. The funnel effect is accomplishedthrough a close weaving of the bamboo strips towards the top. The soft rice baskets,called bayong-bayong, are made with different unusual shapes. These have squarebases and round tops. To produce interesting block and V-shapes, the plain burisides superimposed with colored buri. Color is woven into the Tagbanua basketwith the used of dyed palm leaves.
  • 339. 339Blackened woodcarvings of animals, with simple etched or incised featuresexposing the original whit grain of the wood, are the most well known examples ofTagbanua woodcarvings or sculpture. Some of the objects carved are mammanuk(rooster), a ritual bowl, kiruman (turtle), kararaga (a native bird), dugyan (a smallground animal), lizards, and wild pigs. Carved animals are used with rice, betel nut,and other offerings to attract the deities and spirit relatives in the pagdiwata rituals.The turtles, for instance, floats on grains of palay in an ancient Ming trade bowl.Others that are not used in rituals become toys for children.Performing ArtsComplementing the rich Tagbanua rituals and social gatherings in the past was anassortment of musical instruments. These included the aruding or jews harp; thebabarak or nose flute; the tipanu or mouth flute; the pagang and tibuldu, twovariations of the bamboo zithers; the kudlung or boat lute; the gimbal or drum,whose top was made from the skin of the bayawak or monitor lizard; and the tiring,composed of lengths of bamboo with openings of various sizes producing differentnotes when struck with a stick. In addition, there were two generic types of gongsobtained from the shallow babandil. The mouth flute is still in use, and the gongsand drums are still played during rituals. Modern acoustic type guitar and theukulele, which is fashioned from a half coconut shell, supplant the otherinstruments. The known dances associated with the rituals are the following:abellano, also called soriano, a traditional dance performed by males; bugas-bugasan, a dance for all participants of a pagdiwata, after they have drunk theceremonial tabad (rice wine); kalindapan, solo dance by the female babaylan andher attendants; runsay, ritual dances performed by the villagers on the seashore,where bamboo rafts laden with food offering are floated for the gods; sarungkay, ahealing dance by the main babaylan as she balances a sword on her head andwaves ugsang or palm leaf strip; tugatak and tarindak, dances perform bythe villagers who attend an inim or pagdiwata; tamigan, performed by malecombatants using round winnowers or bilao to represent shields.The dancing accompanying the runsay, performed about midnight and lasting untildaybreak, is possibly the most moving of all Tagbanua dances, since it is a part of asacred ritual that takes place only once a year, and is performed on the beach fromwhere the ritual raft has been launched towards the sea world.Guests who attend the albarka ritual watch dances such as the busak-busak, thespider dance; batak ribid, a dance simulating the gathering of camote; bungalon, ashowing off dance; bugsay-bugsay, a paddle dance using fans; segutset, a courtship
  • 340. 340dance; and tarek, a traditional dance. The andardi is a festival dance of theTagbanua in and around Aborlan, perform at social gatherings. When dancingduring a festival, the performers are dressed in their costumes, and hold in eachhand a dried palm leaf called palaspas. The music of the andardi is composed of onepart of twelve measures, played or sung continuously throughout the dance. Drumor gongs accompanies the music and the song. Drama in Tagbanua society isexpressed in the mimetic dances imitating animals, such as busak-busak, and thoseshowing occupations, such as batak ribid and bugsay-bugsay. But the mostimportant mimetic forms are the rituals where the priestess is possessed by andplays the role of the deity to whom the offerings are being made. The mostimportant of Tagbanua rituals is the diwata, also called pagdiwata or inim, which isessentially an open invitation to the deities to partake of a lavish feast of ceremonialtabad, cooked rice, rice cakes, jewelry, music and other offerings. The ritual isundertaken for any of various purposes: healing of the sick, supplication for abountiful harvest or a successful hunt, thanksgiving for rice harvest, and the generalwell being of the village. The ritual is held in honor of Mangindusa and the otherdeities.The jars of fermented rice wine play a most important role in these rituals, becausethey the means by which the deities are attracted to participate in the feast, ricewine being the only thing absent in the spirit world. The bond formed through therice wine is at once social and cosmological, since the beverage binds the individualto the group, and mortals to the gods and the spirit of the dead and the deities. Atthe center of the diwata rituals is the babaylan, who has the responsibility ofselecting the areas for a new clearing, placating the spirits of the surroundings,providing magical charms for hunters and fishers, and curing all kinds of ailments.While any adult can invoke the spirits of the dead in other Tagbanua rituals, onlythe babaylan can summon them in the pagdiwata.The bilang ceremony is the all-important ritual for the dead. It takes place after therice harvest, a time when tabad becomes plentiful. Every family is expected to hostone or more bilang rituals. The bilang rituals begin with therite of divination, to determine which among the spirit relatives has caused apersons illness. This makes use of the babaylan who performs the brief rite of
  • 341. 341panawag near the grave of the dead relative by making offerings of the betel quidsand ceremonial cigarettes, and promises tabad should the ill become well. Thecelebrants together with the offerings prepare a jar of tabad with sipping reeds. Thebilang ceremony involves the paurut (invocation) of as many spirit relatives aspossible through incantation, and the burning of the parina (incense) whosepleasant smells attract the deities and spirits of the dead. The gongs are played asthe paurut is being performed, and their music is an added incentive for the spirit todescend on the gathering. After the ritual offering of the articles have been laid outon the mat, the food is distributed to the children first, and then to the guests; thenthe bilang mat is removed. The communal drinking of tabad through the reedstraws follows, a very festive social event that lasts through the night.Religious Beliefs and PracticesThe Tagbanuas relationship with the spirit world is the basis for their rituals,celebration, and dances. The many ceremonial feasts punctuating Tagbanua life arebased on a firm belief in a natural interaction between the world of the living theworld of the dead.
