This is Ginakit. A fluvial parade in Maguindanao province, in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), Philippines. This is usually a ceremonial event paying respect to the first Maguindanao Sultan, Shariff Mohammad Kabunsuan. It depicts the arrival of the great Shariff in the early 15th century. He preached Islam and established the Maguindanao Sultanate. He was my great great grandfather.
