Nats took really good pictures of the Kalinga Day celebrations so I decided to “steal” two more pictures from his site 🙂 Visit the Kalinga Tambayan for more of Nats’ photos. He also has pictures of his paintings here. [Dude, you are such a multimedia artist. Magaling ng magkodak, magaling mag web design, at napakagaling mag paint. Congrats!]
Some fast facts about the Kalinga people courtesy of John Dongui-is via Kalinga Blog: “There are 31 subtribes of the Kalinga ethnolinguistic group distributed over the eight municipalities of the province. Each of these subtribes can be identified, principally from their dialect which has dissimilarities in diction, pronounciation and most especially in the phonetic letters and the fricative and voiceless expression of their speech… The beauty in the multilingual, ethnolinguistic groups of Kalinga is that while they speak in different tongues, they understand each other.” I don’t want to “steal” the whole article so you should visit the Kalinga Blog here.
