One aspect of these religious beliefs and customs is the performance of rituals on different occasions. Inherent to these rituals are the prayers and chants. The Benguet Kankana-eys, like any other member of an indigenous culture, perform rituals where prayers are said or chanted by the native priest (manbunong). Conclusion The Benguet Kankana-eys perfom a lot of rituals on different occasions some of which are weddings, death, sickness. During these rituals, prayers are said or chanted. These prayers and chants which are expressed beautifully exemplify varied values and concepts of the Benguet Kankana-eys. Recommendation More studies on other prayers and chants of the Benguet Kankana-eys should be undertaken in order to have a complete knowledge about the rituals they perform, and perhaps, compare similarities or differences in their values and concepts.
