Painting: Bayanihan by Carlos Botong Francisco
The origin of the term bayanihan can be traced from a common tradition in Philippine towns where community members volunteer to help a family move to a new place by volunteering to transport the house to a specific location. The process involves literally carrying the house to its new location. This is done by putting bamboo poles forming a strong frame to lift the stilts from the ground and carrying the whole house with the men positioned at the ends of each pole
In society, bayanihan has also been adopted as a term to refer to a local civil effort to resolve national issues.
