Cordillera - A Cordilleran man proudly raised the Philippine flag on top of a rock at Canada's Banff National Park.

In a Facebook post, Seph Telino Organo paid tribute to his heritage saying, "A celebration of my heritage: Being able to represent my tribe in a land that opened its arms to welcome and let me express myself".

Mr. Organo is seen wearing a bahag which is a traditional loincloth usually worn by Igorot ethnic group in the northern part of the Philippines. He is also wearing a traditional Igorot handmade vest.

Banff National Park is Canada's oldest national park, established in 1885 as Rocky Mountains Park. Located in Alberta's Rocky Mountains, 110–180 kilometres (68–112 mi) west of Calgary, Banff encompasses 6,641 square kilometres (2,564 sq mi) of mountainous terrain, with many glaciers and ice fields, dense coniferous forest, and alpine landscapes.
