Master weaver Jenny Bawer Young is collaborating with Manilatown Heritage Foundation and eight female apprentices on Chew-want chi Biyeg (River of Life) to create an indigenous Kalinga laga (backstrap loom) tapestry. The project’s title refers to the Chica River, which runs through the Cordillera region of the northern Philippines and has been revered by the Kalinga people from ancient times. Pieces will be woven in traditional laga style through a collective and communal process in the United States and the Philippines. Jenny Bawer Young will coach participants in the weaving techniques and piece together the finished work.
