CSC – CAR celebrates Cordillera Month

The Civil Service Commission – CAR celebrates Cordillera Month during their flag raising ceremony last July 24, 2017.

Employees of CSC-CAR wore their Cordillera attire, representing the diverse ethnic groups of the region. In support of the celebration, CSC-CAR members also sang the Cordillera hymn, and provided trivias and must know information regarding the culture and recent issues faced by the land-locked region.

CORDILLERA HYMN

Cradled by majestic mountains
Blest with nature’s flowing fountains
Blooming flow’rs and verdant hills
Is a region of murmuring rills

Refrain:
Cordillera, Region of wonder hail
Beloved land, your name we shall not fail,
Honor and fame to you we’ll strive to bring
Your glory won, we shall forever sing.

Here dwell freedom loving people 
Strong our band its hard to topple
For our freedom we rise and fight
Our priceless ancestral birth right.

(repeat refrain)
Neath the sky the rains may gather
Angry clouds may craz’ly wander
But the sun shines forever fair
As we climb up the golden stair.

(repeat refrain)
Dreams of peace and oneness and progress
Cherished goals our region presses
Striving to build a brighter dawn,
For our children to call their own.

Cordillera, Region of wonder hail
Beloved land, your name we shall not fail,
Honor and fame to you we’ll strive to bring

Your glory won, we shall forever sing.

DID YOU KNOW? On July 15, 1987, President Corazon C. Aquino issued Executive Order 220 which created the Cordillera Administrative Region. The provinces ofAbra, Benguet and Mountain Province (of the Ilocos Region), and Ifugao and Kalinga-Apayao (of the Cagayan Valley) were annexed as part of the newly created region.

On February 14, 1995, Kalinga-Apayao, one of the five provinces of the region was split into two separate and independent provinces of Apayao and Kalinga with the enactment of Republic Act No. 7878.
