Sagada history kept in a basket

Monday, April 7, 2008

WHAT? I don't get this article. My family has been a part of the Sagada community and we don't own a "takba". Takba, transfiguration of Christ, and ancestors?

As I know, Sagada is famous for its "hanging coffins". This is a traditional way of burying people that is still utilized. Not anyone is qualified to be buried this way; one had to, among other things, be married and have grandchildren.
