It has been a long journey, but the day is finally here!  After nearly three years of meetings, piloting, writing and research, we finally launch!  Thank you so much to all the wonderful people I have met and worked with along the way.  I learned a lot and hope to share this knowledge with the younger generation in order to preserve our culture and for them to develop an appreciation for it.  Our heritage will be our legacy for our children.

Maraming salamat!
