Hello,

As many of you may know already, on April 30th we lost Lang Dulay, who for decades had become the recognized face of the T'boli Dreamweavers of Lake Sebu, South Cotabato, Mindanao, Philippines.

There are several news accounts online. Most estimate her age at 91. She passed away quietly in her home in the mountains surrounding her Lake Sebu homeland after having suffered a stroke earlier this year. She was surrounded by family and friends.

Known to her people as a tribal leader as well as master artist, she gained worldwide attention and praise after being awarded the "Gawad sa Manlilikha ng Bayan" or National Living Treasure from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts of the Philippines in 1998. I would encourage everyone to learn more about Lang Dulay, the Tboli people and their stunning, unique textiles.

Lang Dulay will be missed by the world. Rest in Peace

Very sad news indeed.

Another forum member emailed me a PDF file of a newspaper article (from the Philippine Star) which they had been sent and which I attach. To read you really need to print it off as the the file has been compiled from physical cuttings from the newspaper which have been pasted on horizontally and then scanned. I haven't been able to work out how to digitally turn it around :( .

As MAC has very kindly pointed out to me privately, it is very easily possible to rotate the attached PDF above in PDF Reader by clicking on the downloaded PDF image once opened and picking 'rotate clockwise'! Thank you very much MAC!

Just to give some more background on Lang Dulay see an earlier thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2422&hilit=lang+dulay This also includes a video on T'boli t'nalak weaving.
