Photographer's Note

Well, I'm still thinking of how to deviate from my usual posts for the meantime. So, It came to my senses and I wonder what life could this people have if modernization didn't arrive in the indigenous parts of the world, and in this case, in the Philippines. Not only in this country but, now we see the first nations, indigenous tribes, well in this photo, dyed hair, wearing western shirts, shorts, footwears, instead of their orthodox lifestyle. I hope they could still preserve their own traditions through out the years.


This was taken 2 years ago (wow, time flies so fast) during my trip to this volcano in the middle part of the northern main island of the Philippines. Spotted this Aeta, a local/indigenous people who were residents of the area.


Aeta-are an indigenous people who live in scattered, isolated mountainous parts of Luzon, Philippines. They are considered to be Negritos, who are dark to very dark brown-skinned and tend to have features such as a small stature, small frame, curly to kinky afro-like textured hair with a higher frequency of naturally lighter hair color (blondism) relative to the general population, small nose, and dark brown eyes. They are thought to be among the earliest inhabitants of the Philippines, preceding the Austronesian migrations.
