LAGAWE, Ifugao – The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples in the province opened  at the Capitol Atrium the photo exhibit of Project Epanaw (journey) depicting the lives  of  Indigenous Cultural Communities (ICCs)/IPs  in the country.
NCIP Provincial Officer Esther Lichnachan said the exhibit runs until March 31.  Ifugao is one of the two exhibit sites in the Cordillera and among the 27 locations in the country.
Project Epanaw  is a tribute to the 101 ICCs/IPs in the Philippines. It includes three coffee table books that are also on display at the exhibit area. The coffee books entitled Pagkilala (Recognition), Paggalang (Respect), and Pagtaguyod (Promote) present a true and accurate picture of the culture of IPs and their contributions and provide readers a better understanding and appreciation of the IP groups.    
Licnachan enjoined the public to view the exhibit.
