Elder 1

Name: Lucila Deliso        Age: 58       F

Question: What are the cultural beliefs or practices in the community that you value?

Answer: The “pagmamano” is a very important practice that we, Filipinos must maintain and must pass to future generations. Pagmamano was taught by my parents and they were taught also by their parents. And also the “panliligaw” or courtship is very important for us to have among couples to get to know them very well and if they are suited for each other.

Elder 2

Name: Asterio Ampong       Age: 53       M

Question: What are the cultural beliefs or practices in the community that you value?

Answer: Blessing to elders or what we called ‘pagmamano’ is one of the cultural practice that we still do today and we value. Because it is known for Filipinos to have a deep respect to the elders. And we have this belief that if we visit a wake of a dead, we must do “pagpag” or we must visit another place first before going home to prevent the spirit of the dead to follow you at home.

So the cultural beliefs or practices we got from the two elders are:

  • Pagmamano (blessing to elders)
  • Panliligaw (courtship)
  • Pagpag (visting another place first before going home from a wake)

It is unique to a given culture or society and in this case, culture of Filipinos in the Philippines. This cultural beliefs and practices are part of daily lives of every Filipinos and has been widely known among Filipinos.
