Native Beauties show Ethnic Pride!

The past meets the present for the Bai ng Kiblawan 2015!

On the night of July 16, 205, seven hopefuls from the various barangays of Kiblawan, Davao del Sur competed in a pageant of beauty, talent and intellect. The participants were not just average beauties as they were also members of the indigenous B’laan tribe of the municipality. The municipality organized the event to showcase the beauty of the native tribe and to combat discrimination against indigenous peoples.

The contestants then competed in various categories such as the night gown, talent portion, tribal wear and the dreaded question and answer portion. Avenue One Hotel’s General Manager Teodorico Dofiles II served as one the judges for the event.

The winners of the event were classified into three categories:

Bai ng Turismo Ms. Grace Mae Buenavista

Bai ng Kultura Ms. Romelyn Suay

and

Geromaine Jan Dacullo as Bai ng Kiblawan.

Avenue One Hotel served as a sponsor for the event. The Bai receives a free hotel accommodation for one day at the hotel.
