Ate a local near the church

      After our climb in Mt. Arayat we were invited by ma’am Weng at their family house in Nueva Ecija for us to witness the Taong Putik festival in Aliaga, Nueva Ecija. Are you familiar the movie Sukob a horror movie by Kris Aquino? the taong putik was part of that movie.

     We noticed Ate, a local near the church, was holding dried banana leaves and we asked her where to find the other taong putik. She invited us if want to witness how they mud themselves we just followed her until we reached the rice fields.

In the rice fields where they put mud in their body

Ask for alms

    Before the mass the taong putiks will go around the village and ask for alms, and the house owners are willing to give that can be offer like candles in the belief that they will be rewarded with many blessings.

Offer a prayer

Devotee


     On the feast day, local folks gather themselves and do the ritual called “Pagsa-San Juan,” which means remembering the significant role played by Saint John in baptizing Jesus Christ.  But later, this became known as “Taong Putik Festival.” they celebrate the festival every June 24. source: tripmagazine
