Abstract: This study examines local production and historical development of dances among two ethnic communities in the Philippines, namely the Maranao, a Muslim group in the southern Philippines, and the Kalinga, a Cordillera mountain tribe in the northern Philippines. The study explores changing dance traditions and expressions of ethnic identities in the two communities in the process of being integrated into the national culture, by drawing attention to a role of local elites as a mediator of the cultural and artistic practices and meanings between Manila-based dance companies and local communities. The dissertation illustrates how what we view as Maranao and Kalinga dances are often complicated performances of nationalism where the accommodation, resistance and compromise of local communities are acted out, and how local and national cultural authorities and artists struggle to define and gain control of the definition of what it means to be authentic.
