THE IGOROT COSTUME

Camille of Memoirs of a Med Student, is a 22 yr - old, lovely Med student who has interests in books, movies , food and - believe it or not - PC games and basketball.
Aside from pursuing Medicine, she also puts aside time to watch movies and to read books by Coelho and other well known authors.
Her blog is very stimulating because of the diverse interests that Camille has. Go visit her blog at Memoirs of a Med Student.




Although she is not an Igorot in blood; she had done justice to the ethnic beauty of the Igorot costume. She is holding the traditional wooden shield in her left hand and the spear in her right. She is also wearing the colorful native beads and the headress.

This picture was taken during a visit to Baguio - the Summer Capital of the Philippines.

Thanks Camille for allowing me to use your picture in my blog.

A great pix, but I wish she isn't holding a spear and a shield. Igorotas' may be natives, but they're not warriors. The spear and shield should have been reserved for the Igorot man's pix, eh? Great to see an Igorota doctor, though. And very pretty, too. I'll be visiting her site soon.

Jena Isle said...

You have a point Tasha, on both counts. But doesn't she look lovely?
Thanks for dropping by.

Jenn said...

Wish I could wear a costume like that, too, and dance together with the Igorots!

By the way, do Kalinga people speak Ilocano dialect? I am an Ilocano from La Union.

Jen, most of them do, especially the younger generation, but the older people understand English more than Tagalog.

Thanks for the visit.

Jenaisle said...

and BTW Jenn, my husband is from Ilocos Norte - He's a GI (genuine ilocano) but now he's stationed in Bauang, La Union.

Well beautiful picture. Did the women take part in fighting?

Jenaisle said...

Hello Ray, no they don't. In the past when tribal wars were still rampant, women were the work force while men guard the territory.

Nowadays, that peace is in place, both men and women now have their share of work.

Thanks for dropping by Ray.
