Kadayawan, dubbed "the festival of festivals" and "the king of festivals" in the Philippines, is annual thanksgiving celebration of the 10 Moro and Lumad tribes in the Mindanao for the year’s bountiful harvest.
These ten indigenous and Moro tribes of Mindanao include the Matigsalug, Tagabawa, Ata, Obo-Manobo, Klata-Djangan, Maranao, Maguindanao, Sama, Kagan and Tausug tribes.
The name of Kadayawan derives from the friendly greeting "Madayaw", from the Dabawenyo word "dayaw", meaning good, valuable, superior, or beautiful.
The festival is a celebration of life, a thanksgiving for the gifts of nature, the wealth of culture, the bounties of harvest, and serenity of living.
Indak Indak sa Kadalanan (Street Dancing Competition) is one of the highlights of Kadayawan Festival where more than 20 cultural performing groups from the different schools in Davao and the best performing groups from the nearby cities and municipalities all over Mindanao competed together.
