“The role of culture is that it's the form through which we as a society reflect on who we are, where we've been, where we hope to be.” - Wendell Pierce

On March 24, 2017, 95 students and 15 faculty members from the Academia de Sophia International (AdSI)  of Baguio City experienced the Museo Kordilyera Tour.  With the goal of rekindling the appreciation for the Cordilleran culture, the Organizational Communication (BA 198) students  of Ms. Ma. Buena Victoria Tenefrancia  of  the BS Management Economics Program, Institute of Management, University of the Philippines Baguio initiated the Museo Kordilyera Tour. The tour aimed to showcase the best of the Cordilleran culture through its  food, games, and history

Four activities — the tour, games, film viewing, and music & costume appreciation — were crafted to showcase the Cordilleran culture in a nutshell. Divided into four groups, the students were given a chance to further experience the various activities simultaneously.The first activity, the Museo Kordilyera Tour, was done by the volunteers of the Museo Kordilyera. A guided tour was created especially for the students.   The second activity was the film viewing in the new Audio-Visual Room of the Museo Kordilyera where a film about the tattoos were shown. The third activity was the music and costume segment.  The students were taught  on  how to properly wear the ‘bahag’. The fourth activity was  were the students  were able to play some Cordilleran games.

Overall, the feedback among the faculty and students of AdSI  showed that the activity was a success. Not only did they learn but they were able to form an appreciation of  the culture that was thought to be forgotten. With the idea of rekindling the appreciation for the culture, it can be said that the Museo Kordilyera not only provides an avenue to learn about the culture, it provides a total experience that would leave a mark on each person who wants to learn and attain a certain knowledge regarding the Cordilleras (Joelle Mathea S. Panganiban).
