‘Sinina’ promotes culture

Davao City – The University of the Immaculate Conception (UIC) recently celebrated their 108 years founding anniversary by highlighting an event dubbed as “Sinina” (dress) which showcase and promotes the culture and values of Filipinos through folk dancing while parading a wide array of colorful costumes.

Participated by the students of UIC, the school aligned the event in their mission to strengthen, preserve as well as promote the rich Philippine culture during the pre-colonial, colonial and American periods.

Dr. Porferia Poralan, technical director of the event told Manila Bulletin that so far the event is the grandest among the activities being done by the school.

“This is event is very significant because the whole institution was involved, the pre-school, high school and college students took part on the activity and it is well-planned and prepared,” Poralan explained.

She also added that “Sinina” is a way of encouraging the students and spectators to appreciate the rich culture of the Philippines especially on the traditions and values as presented on the event.

“Since we are into a generation that is equipped with new technologies, this event is a reminder especially to students that Philippines has wonderful traditions and colorful costumes that still exist. We want to protect what’s ideal especially in dresses,” Poralan stressed.

“Sinina” is showcasing the Precolonial practices and traditions and moved swiftly to the flirtatious and captivating influence of the Spaniards, onto the playful energy of the American period in a parade of Carnival Queens and the contemporary evolution of Filipino dress in modern time.
