Liyang is an Ata (one of the indigenous tribes of Davao del Norte in the Philippines) handicraft which directly translates into a basket. It is intricately woven by the Ata women which serves as the repository of traditional cloths, armors, pieces of written literature and even religious items. The art of weaving Liyang is being passed on from generation to generation. It is the witness of the Ata tribe’s rich cultural history.
