SAKUTING (sah-KOOH-teehng)

A dance of the Ilokano Christians and non-Christians from the province of Abra, Sakuting was originally performed by boys only. It portrays a mock fight using sticks to train for combat. The stacatto-inflected music suggests a strong Chinese influence. The dance is customarily performed during Christmas at the town plaza, or from the house-to-house. The spectators give the dancers aguinaldos, or gifts of money or refreshments especially prepared for Christmas.

Dancers:

  • BOYS:  Elliot Turner, Karl Bernadas, Kalvin Higgins, Emmar Lee, Lucky Larroza, Tristan Turbyfill

  • GIRLS:  Ali Turner, Tatianna Nelson, Jennifer Justice, Kaylene Lee, Merle Estavas, KP Bernadas.
