 Sun.Star Baguio - Marky Cielo is Igorot icon?
With their innate reserve by nature, the crowd did not become unruly as is usually the case in Metro Manila and the lowlands, but cheers and claps were noticeably louder and more people trooped to the gym when Cielo arrived at the venue compared with the arrival of Angara, the guest speaker.
Cielo's statement that he is proud of being an Igorot that earned him the admiration and support of the entire Mountain Province, that even the governor, Maximo Dalog, gave an inter-office memorandum for the province's officialdom to text-vote for Cielo everyday.
Along with the people of Mountain Province, Cielo, although admittedly only half Igorot as his father is from Iligan City, was treated with the rare opportunity of seeing the different tribes perform their traditional dances and chants in full regalia in one place.

When the Igorots were at the Fair, their village was actually located in the city of Clayton next to Forest Park which belongs to the city of St. Louis.
The people in the neighborhood near the Igorot Village were concerned, upset, and angered at times because of the disappearance of dogs in their neighborhood.

The Igorot loves all his children, and says, when a boy is born, "It is good," and if a girl is born he says it is equally "good" -- it is the fact of a child in the family that makes him happy.

 Subordination and Resistances: Ethnicity in the Highland Communities of the Cordillera Administrative Region, Northern ...
For Finin, "self-conscious images of territorial and social oneness may over time emerge from the ways in which state planning and policies are imposed via administrative grids."4 He contends that American colonial policies, especially those of defining administrative grids or territorial boundaries, fostered the evolution of regional consciousness in the Cordilleras.
Although the situation in the Cordilleras has been examined as resource competition between the highland communities that inhabit the area and the government of the Philippines, it is also a discourse on issues of subordination, resistances, and ethnicization.
Nor are individuals equally empowered to opt out of the labeling process, to become the invisible against which others' visibility is measured."14 By subscribing to Igorot ethnicity, the highland communities attest to and orient themselves within the nation-state but at the margins of Philippine society.

The living descendants of those Igorots, who consist of five tribes from the mountains in the northern Philippines, are convinced (despite any potentially unannounced skepticism) that their ancestors were forced to perform their ritual dog feast daily.
The Igorots also allegedly were denied sufficient winter clothing at the Fair for the sake of the scientific value in their appearing just as scantily clad as they did back in their highland home.
The Igorots of the 1904 World's Fair days were most often labeled by the newspapers of the day as "head hunters." The tribes who traveled half the globe to the Fair on the same boat and train had allegedly left a constant state of intertribal rivalry and feuding for each other's heads.
