Nayong Pilipino transferred from a now mothballed building near NAIA Terminal 2 to Clark Field, Pampanga since November 2007. It now occupies the south to the southeastern portion of the Clark Expo (formerly Expo Filipino), the Philippine National Centennial Exposition and centerpiece for the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Philippine Independence, featuring an amphitheater-type mega tent that can seat 35,000 people. Nayong Pilipino features some bits and pieces of Philippine History. The exhibits start with the old legend, such as Malakas and Maganda, telling the story of the beginnings of the human race. There are also characters from the Philippines folklore and epics, including the story of the founding fathers of the pre-Spanish Philippines. Familiar with the story of Lakan Manaul and the Legend of the Philippine Archipelago? Well, they have a synopsis here and ’twas my first time to hear about it. As you move inwards, you will encounter replicas of the villages of tribal Filipinos who preserved indigeneity – the people of Cordillera.
