Tam-awan Village is a model Cordillera village and a center of local arts and culture in Baguio. The name Tam-awan is from an indigenous word meaning "vantage point". Tam Awan was established by Benedicto Cabrera also known as Bencab in order to promote the local arts scene. The village consists of authentic Ifugao and Kalinga huts on hilly terrain. Visitors to Tam-awan may watch artists at work, attend art workshops, view exhibits and attend cultural events that occasionally take place here. The village was established in 1998 by the local Baguio government in cooperation with the Chanum Foundation, Inc a group of artists headed by Bencab. The foundation transplanted 3 authentic Ifugao huts from Banga-an to the site.
