A fellow Filipino playing the role of Datu Lapu-Lapu, whose statue and shrine lingers in the back of the photo, in the Kadaugan sa Mactan Festival. The festival is an annual week-long commemoration of the 1521 battle in Mactan between Datu Lapu-Lapu and Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. 

According to the Lapu-Lapu city mayor, Arturo Radaza, the festival was created to both honor Datu Lapu-Lapu and his battle in fighting off Ferdinand Magellan and his men, as well as going back to our roots. In a quote this is what he said, in Bisaya, “Let’s do away with crab mentality so we can achieve progress."
