Background
This is a dance of the ethnic people living in western side of the
Cordillerra way back before the coming of the Americans to our
country. During Christmas, young boys and girls accompanied by
their elders would go to the lowlands, especially in Abra and
Ilocos Norte to dance in front of the house and ask for gifts. These
young children hold sticks, one on each hand and strike them
together to make their dance livelier. The people in the homes
would give them money, homemade delicacies, and other things.
These dancing groups later reached a far as the coastal towns
of Ilocos region as years went by. The rhythmic sound produced
by the stick attracted other children and also adults and they also
learned the dance. Sakuting is an ethnic term which refers to the
rhythmic sticks producing the accompaniment for the dance.
