Balik Sa Dagat – Return To The Sea

Balik sa dagat means “Return to the Sea.”

Reconnecting to our ancestral heritage of a seafaring people, we gather as the Bangka Journey community building the World Bangka. We now look back so we can continue forward.

The bangka is almost complete, and we invite all to be in community with us. Come to sing, to dance, to weave, to carve, to celebrate as we near completion of the World Bangka.


There are many ways to support this project. If you cannot visit with us, please consider a donation to our GoFundMe campaign by visiting All funds go toward completing the project, especially bringing Master Ifugaw Carver Mamerto Lagitan Tindongan to California to help finish the bangka.

We are so enjoying preparing for your arrival!
