During the launch of the Center for Ilocano-Amianan Studies at the Mariano Marcos State University (MMSU) in Batac, Ilocos Norte, a recitation of daniw was performed by Prof. Marlina L. Lino who was dressed in Filipiniana.
A daniw is a poem. She beautifully recited Siriringka iti Nakem ti Ili, Apo Ferdinand! It’s a tribute to the former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos who is a son of Batac. It was composed by Mr. Joel Manuel, an alumnus of MMSU Laoag City.
