The Salip is a Kalinga dance in which a warrior is depicted claiming his bride by giving her a matrimonial blanket. The woman then balances several clay pots on her head and follows the man, an action expressing submission. The man’s actions resemble those of a courting rooster. There is also a version of this dance performed with two men competing for the woman’s favor.
