REGION 2: CAGAYAN VALLEY
Transcript of REGION 2: CAGAYAN VALLEY
Agriculture remains the dominant economic activity throughout Cagayan Valley. 75% are farmers while 25% are professionals. Cropping is twice or thrice a year with existing irrigation. The staple food is corn. Rice, peanuts, legumes and others are also produced for additional income. Others do carpentry, furniture, woodcraft, and basketry-making.
On January 11, 2008, the Cagayan Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) stated that tilapia production grew and Cagayan Valley is now the Philippines’ tilapia capital (Saint Peter’s fish).
REGION 2: CAGAYAN VALLEY
Cagayan Valley has a total population of 3,229,163 as of 2010 census population.
Cagayan Valley has eighty-nine (89) muniipalities divided into ten congressional districts. It has 2,311 barangays. Tuguegarao, being the regional capital, is the regional seat for education training and a commercial district.
Ibanag, Itawis and Ilocano and Malueg are the major dialects of the Region. Other ethnic groups speak their own dialects. A person in places where literacy is high speaks understands English and Filipino Language.
That the early inhabitants of Cagayan lived in villages which were properly organized and which maintained trade and security relations with one another gives proof of the kind of culture which existed among them already at that time. They were not nomads, they practiced agriculture. They raised livestock which they had brought from the lands of their provenance or domesticated those that they found in the new homeland. They wove cloth from plant fibers and kapok thread. They fashioned household and farm implements from metal. They cooked their food in pots and vessels made of clay.
banag "unoni" or proverbs are either in prose or poetry. hey are preachy and pedagogic as well as theological.
Awan tu umune ta uton ng ari umuluk ta davvun.
