Culture and Heritage of Tiwi, Albay, Philippines through the Lenses of Cultural Mapping

Publisher: Bicol University

Culture from the anthropological perspective sums up the behaviors, beliefs, attitudes, and values of a certain group of people. This study looked into the culture and heritage of Tiwi, Albay related to Mount Mayon in Eastern Philippines. The purposive cultural mapping in the locale is guided by the Heritage Cycle. It has identified the following tangible cultural elements: the statue of Our Lady of Salvation, Mayon inspired ceramics, Sangguniang Bayan seal, and the Japanese Garden. Only one intangible cultural element was identified which is the belief of the people in the community to asuang and gugurang. Results show the engendered awareness, history, heritage, and culture of the people of Tiwi, Albay. As tool for understanding local history, it provided a glimpse on how things were done in the past and explored the possibility of their relevance in the present-day problems and concerns. The study recommends expanding the scope of the mapping and be anchored on the ASEAN Declaration of Cultural Heritage.
