This resource for students, together with the guide for teachers, forms the curricular backbone of the Hudhud Schools for Living Tradition programme. These schools, established in Ifugao Province, seek to enable the intergenerational transmission of the Hudhud narrative chants. The students’ guide provides background on the Hudhud, including its origin, themes, cultural significance, related customs and mode of performance. It then presents five sample chants, each from a different area of Ifugao, written in the respective local language. An English translation is provided for four of the chants. In addition, the guide includes lists of characters, places and vocabulary used in the Hudhud, as well as a course evaluation form and directory of Hudhud Schools for Living Tradition.
