The Philippine Sports Commission will be staging a modified version of the Indigenous Peoples (IP) Games in an effort to reach their IP stakeholders in the midst of the pandemic.
The project is spearheaded by Dabawenyo Commissioner Charles Raymond A. Maxey.
The traditional sports and games of the IP communities in the Province of Benguet will be recorded for showcase and documentation in the spirit of the preservation, promotion, and propagation of culture.
Commissioner Charles Raymond A. Maxey paid a courtesy call with the Governor of Benguet, Hon. Melchor D. Diclas, and was received by Mr. Brian Camhit, OIC-Provincial Administrator to discuss the implementation of the said project.
Governor Diclas and the Provincial Government of Benguet were presented with Certificates of Appreciation for their continued support to the Commission and were also presented with personalized tokens and sports supplies and equipment for the development of sports for youth in the province. These supplies include 500 bags with notebooks and pens, notepads, and towels, 50 volleyballs, 25 footballs, 25 basketballs, and 5 gongs with beater.
The traditional sports and games demonstration recording project will be implemented in partnership with the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples.
