Why not Kankanaey?

When Marky Cielo went home to promote StarStruck and his quest for stardom, he spoke in Iluko/Ilocano. This could be a way for him to get more sympathy from a bigger audience (television audience– the whole Northern Luzon), but why didn’t he use Kankanaey more? It would have made the experience more authentic.

Anyway, I’m already convinced that he is really from here. I’m just wondering why SLU is not giving its support to him. Dahil ba hindi ito SCQ? Last year nung may nakapasok sa SCQ-Regional, na-lagay pangalan at mukha niya sa Buhay SLU (SLU Bulletin). Ngayon, wala man lang congratulations from the school? Unfair!

Ala, ulay eestem kayet Marky. Baken mo dayaw et kedeng nan naitapyam isnan StarStruck am-amed tay ad-ado ay Ili nan inumdanam. Kagagasing ay mang-ila ken sik-a isnan TV et nan pangabak mo et pangabak tako am-in.

  3. go marky, i agree with you ifontok …. ang importante sana huwag niya ikahiya ang isang pagiging igorot..ano ba problema kung isa kang igorot.. ????stay humble, simple and be proud na isa kang igorot….as long as u are not doing bad ….. walang problema doon….happy new year to all … and peace to all…..

  5. in my opinion montanagig is just making a correction as to the facts about where Marky studied.

    Marky’s success or failure also depends on us. Lets give him that 50% and he will have to work for that 50%.

    manbotos tako kayet. entakos san internet cafe ay makwani, manload kayo esan cell phone yo ta sumanengseng nan botos di kailian tako.

    i read somewhere that Marky is geetting support too from Nueva Ecija and upwards ket no kasta nasayaat met ta adda tumulong.

    The Igorot issue is a Big Deal, very Big Deal. It’s our chance to be noticed and understood. Other parts of the Philippine look us down because they don’t know about us and they don’t understand about us. Thanks to Marky for puting the Mountain Province on the map and the whole Igorotland.

    Like I wrote in another forum. Here in the states, every time I met a Filipino. They don’t even know where the hell Mountain Province is. They would say, saang province ka doon sa Mountain Province? Or hindi ka Igorot dahil ang mga Igorots are those ldark little people with curly hairs. They don’t know that they are refering to the negritos /itas of Zambales. Tsaka ang akala ng ibang pilipino ay Igorots are dirty and ugly people na walang pinag-aralan. Hay naku mga ignorante. Kung alam lang nila.

    Ang another thing, as time goes by, I keep finding out na marami palang mga igorot na celebrity, di lang natin alam dahil nililihim nila or perhaps just mention it once and hope that people will just forget about it. That’s why lalong sumisikat si Marky dahil sa kanyang ethnic background and sheer talent. Marami na syang nahahatak na fans na di taga Cordillera.

    Just my thoughts.

  10. mmmmmmmmmmmmmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggggggaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbbbbaaaaaaaaaaaaakkkkkkkkkkkkkkk di igorot.

    we would lyk 2 congratulate u even if we are from afar here in Ifugao.

    keep up the good work!stay humble,simple and sweet still.


  19. im a native of Bontoc,Mountain Province but grew up in Lepanto,Benguet….a genuine IGOROT and am proud of it.goodluck Marky…..you re truly a genuine IGOROT too……

  20. We should be smarter by now not to even entertain the IGNORANCE OF OUR FELLOW FILIPINOS ABOUT THE PEOPLE OF THE CORDILLERAS (CHA TAKO AY IGOROTS!)

    It is simple as that: lack of knowledge=ignorance= tell them to go back to school and learn their geography!

    this young man Mr. Cielo is only a start of Igorot youngsters heading towards stardom, taking over most (take note) of the stupid and foolish people in the Philippine Movie Industry. The only person i respected is Lea Salonga…The rest has nothing compared to her, in brains and in acting and international fame.

    Let’s not however ignore their ignorance..just educate them if there is a possibility of doing so…

    Goodluck to the the Cordillerans and non-Cordillerans who saw passed the skin and ethnicity or religion of any person. Acting talent does not only apply to non-cordillerans and if there is a chance they are given the opportunity to showcase their natural talents, so be it…accept them for who they are, what they become and what their talent means to you or to society.

    Be proud, Igorots ay kakailian!
