Folklore > Philippines > Ifugao Aboriginal Priestess

 Jun 06 2012  

Ifugao province is on Luzon Island, the northern part of the Philippines. It is located in a mountainous region with rice terraces, river valleys and forests, where people still make a living by mostly farming and wood carving.

We were lucky to meet an aboriginal priestess, Elena Anagiwan, introducing us the ritual  of harvest, which is a way to show our respect to God.
