Photo: Kinabayo Festival In Southern Philippines

Subanon indigenous people show their best at the recent Kinabayo Festival in Dapitan City in Zamboanga del Norte province in the southern Philippines. The annual celebration is being held in honor of Saint James, whom Catholics say defended Christian settlers in Dapitan City during an invasion by Muslim warriors in the 18th century. The festival coincided also with the 1st National Media Summit on Eco-tourism held in Dapitan's Dakak beach resort. (Mindanao Examiner Photo / Mark Navales)
