Pig wrestling in Banaue
Contests and Competitions
I’m sure you agree with me when I say that catching a greasy pig is not easy at all. Pig wrestling or commonly known as “chopap” for the Ifugao is a much awaited event during the Imbayah festival. Men, on their G-strings and headgears, are all invited to join. Contestants, usually young or old, try to catch a slippery pig in a muddy fenced pen. This game is one way, for men, to prove how physically strong and ready they are for the next rice planting season. Whoever wins the contest gets to bring home a black greasy pig for dinner.
