Gracing Kalinga for the second Bodong Festival and 23rd founding anniversary of the province, the Kalinga Sangguniang Panlalawigan honored Ilocos Norte governor Ma. Imelda “Imee” R. Marcos as a “daughter of the province of Kalinga” through Resolution No. 2018-025. The honor is a provincial tradition for Kalinga and is in consonance with customary ethnic practices. According to the resolution, it is a recognition bestowed upon “personages who have singularly endeared themselves and contributed outstanding services to the people.” The Kalinga board particularly gave Ms. Marcos the name “Laggunawa”, meaning, “a beautiful and strong daughter of a tribal chieftain.” The province grants their sons and daughters of the province certain privileges, including protection under the umbrella of the Kalinga Peace Pact institution or the Bodong Justice System “Proto-Pagta.”
