Background / Content“Inday”, a general term of endearment for a woman in the Visayas is played by an effeminate farmer who is donned in women’s clothing while carrying a voodoo doll as he leads an all-male cast of dancers. It is their way of propitiating the nature gods as well as the patron saint of Siaton, San Nicolas during his feast day in December.
