3rd Igorot Cordillera BIMAAK Europe (ICBE) Consultation
5-8 May 2005

Dear auntie Mia
I hope you enjoyed your stay in Switzerland and you had a pleasant journey back to America.
On behalf of Swiss-Igorot youth I want to thank you for your wonderful presentation you held during last weekend’s convention in Aeschi. For us it was very helpful to understand more about the Igorot culture although we couldn’t stay the whole meeting. But we are now eager to learn more about it and hopefully there are more occasions in the future to do so and to be close to our elders so that you can tell us about your experiences. That’s why I completely agree with your suggestion about the topic for the next convention: “Getting deeper into the Igorot culture”. As you said: What should we tell our children about the Igorot culture if our elders don’t teach us about it? We’ll certainly keep that in mind and we’ll make sure that we can tell your grandchildren about that wonderful culture.
Thank you also for sending your presentation of the topic on Igorot culture. We will use this precious information for future references about sharing our culture.
