100-yr-old Kalinga warrior honored
by Jezebel L. Gumatay

The Department of Social Welfare and Development-Cordillera recently awarded the fourth centenarian in Tanudan, Kalinga the P100,000 grant from the government.

Pedro Sacragon Bangguiyac, 102, of Babbanoy, Tanudan, Kalinga is recognized as the fourth centenarian in Tanudan.

Bagguiyac is one of the remaining maingors in Kalinga. Maingor refers to the warriors of the Kalingas. They are distinguished by their batok or body tattoos.

Apart from the P100,000 grant delivered by personnel of the DSWD-Cordillera, Bangguiyac also received a letter of felicitation for reaching a century from President Rodrigo Roa Duterte. 

“When the Centenarian Law was passed, reaching this age has become one of our father’s goals. We are grateful to DSWD,” said Segundo Bangguiyac, one of the centenarian’s six children. 

Apo Bangguiyac was one of the brave men who fought during our fight with the Japanese. He also served as a barangay official in Lubo, Tanudan. His contributions to the municipality of Tanudan might be one of the reasons that he is granted a long life. As one of the elders, the community respects and listens to his words. He has huge contributions when it comes to amicable settlements of different conflicts in our community”, said Mayor Jaedicke Rhoss Dagadag.

There are 97 centenarians who were recognized in the Cordillera.
