In a splendid showcase of the Philippines’ rich Indigenous cultures, La Consolacion College Bacolod unveiled a captivating exhibition with the theme “Dolls of Diversity: Celebrating Indigenous Filipino Heritage.” This exhibit, organized by the Humanities and Social Sciences Area of the LCCB School of Sciences, Liberal Arts, and Teacher Education, was a heartfelt tribute to the spirit of unity, education, and reverence for the country’s Indigenous peoples.
Taking place in accordance with CHEDRO VI Memorandum No. 221, LCCB’s event aligned itself with the Higher Education Act of 1994 (RA No. 7722) and Presidential Proclamation No. 1906, designating October as Indigenous Peoples Month. The stars of the exhibition were the dolls, elegantly adorned in attire that echoed the profound cultural roots of the Philippines. These dolls stood as silent yet eloquent ambassadors of Indigenous culture, poised to educate, inspire, and celebrate the rich heritage they represented.
La Consolacion College Bacolod’s “Dolls of Diversity: Celebrating Indigenous Filipino Heritage” exhibition underscored the institution’s unwavering commitment to education, diversity, and the appreciation of cultural heritage. The event not only paid homage to the past but also ignited a creative spark for the future, encouraging all viewers to delve into their own heritage and explore the vivid tapestry of the Philippines’ Indigenous cultures.
The exhibit primarily focused on the intricate designs and symbolism of Indigenous clothing represented by the dolls. The choice of fair-skinned dolls was made to utilize sustainable and readily available materials in the market, and it should not be misconstrued as any form of disrespect or offense to Indigenous communities. #lccbSSLATE #LCCBCommunityofFriends #BuildingDreamsTogetherwithLCCB
