Information about Tam-awan Village
Tam-awan village offers a space for the local culture and arts to thrive by showcasing Ifugao and Kalinga huts and exhibits hosted by the artists of Baguio City. This tourist attraction in Baguio City is arguably the opposite of the city proper where the Western influences from the American occupation are still visible to this day.
The village was founded in 1998 by the Chanum Foundation Inc., whose vision of the village is to be a venue for art and cultural activities that will raise appreciation for the Cordilleran heritage and boost the local economy. What started with three huts from Bangaan, Ifugao eventually became seven Ifugao huts and two Kalinga houses, which were reconstructed using original materials and new cogon roofs.
Exhibits are constantly displayed inside the houses, with art pieces made by local artists. Cordilleran craftsmanship is highlighted by the artistry present in the village, making it accessible to the public.
