A way for Blaan children to learn about their culture.

The Blaan are an indigenous people from Southern Mindanao, Philippines. In partnership with Save The Children's First Read program, they created Tay Klehew i Smalaf, a children's book for kids aged 0-4.

A Blaan family goes on a fishing trip. They use different techniques: spearing, netting, and trapping. Afterwards, they cook their catch and enjoy a meal together.
