 A look intointo the Illongt life
The Ilongot people are a tribal society who lives in the hills of Northern Luzon in the Philippines.
The different groups of the Ilongot's were called bertan and their social structure comprised of 4 parts: families, then households, then local clusters, and finally bertan (Rosaldo 1980, p 14-15).
This was the peak of Ilongot headhunting (Rosaldo 1980, 48-54).

Wilfred Turnbull, fluent in the Ilongot dialect, questioned Jones' actions, and explained that an initial batch of rafts were constructed but were washed away by a rising river, confirmed by Jones' diary (Jones 1907-09, IX: 52).
Jones was credited with having advocated on behalf of the Ilongots leading to "legislative and administrative measures as have been adopted, calculated to better their condition, that were based directly on information which I received from him," wrote Governor-General James F. Smith upon learning of Jones' death.
This is not say that Ilongots had nothing redeeming about all of their crafts as their jewelry and their hornbill headdresses are quite beautiful and unique in the opinion of many anthropologists.

 The Provincial Profile of Quirino
The Ilongots are hunters and slash and burn farmers living around the headwaters of the Cagayan River who have a strong pride in their ethnic identity.
The Bugkalot ethnic community, an Ilongot tribal village of formerly fierce headhunters living in the upper reaches of Nagtipunan, has constant interaction with the lowlanders of Quirino and is one of the few communities that can be reached readily.
Ilongot communities are widely scattered and generally small units of from 50 to 70 members.

 HEAD-HUNTING IN SOUTHEAST ASIA
Ilongot did not say they hunted heads in order to recruit enemy souls into their ancestors’ armies in the skyworld, nor did they do it to turn ‘enemies’ into ‘friends’ and therefore resolve a structural/cosmological contradiction.
Michelle Rosaldo returned to study the Ilongot in 1974, determined to study in more detail how personal and affective life is socially constructed and to understand how even common explanations (or ‘discourse’) requires an interpretive account.
She focused on two indigenous Ilongot terms: liget (translated as ‘angry’ as opposed to passive, dull or fearful—hence ‘passion’ or creative energy); and beya (translated as ‘knowledge’, or that which controls one’s passion and emotions).

Rosaldo’s article "Grief and the Headhunter's Rage" is an important exemplar of a number of major themes in post modern anthropology—multi vocality, the shifting subject, and the insertion of the anthropologist's own experience into the text (self reflexivity).
From the facts that he didn't understand what the Ilongot meant, by the anger in grief until after his own wife's death, Rosaldo concludes that experience differs at different times and that "culture" is indeed composed of many voices--more than one of which may belong to the same individual.
Moreover, culture is not stable--the meaning of headhunting for the Ilongot changes according to whether circumstances render it easy, difficult or impossible.

In explaining the significance of these key ideas, Professor Rosaldo examines what she considers to be the most important dimensions of Ilongot social relationships: the contrasts between men and women and between accomplished married men and bachelor youths.
By defining 'knowledge' and 'passion' in the context of their social and affective significance, the author demonstrates the place of headhunting in historical and political processes, and shows the relation between headhunting and indigenous concepts of curing, reproduction, and health.
Theoretically oriented toward interpretive of symbolic ethnography, this book clarifies some of the ways in which the study of a language - both vocabulary and patterns of usage - is a study of a culture; the process of translation is presented as a method of cultural interpretation.

Ilongots, as what other people call the Bugkalots, come from the most remote part of the forest zone and usually resides in caves and trees for shelter.
They were also well known to be head hunters which legend tells it that an Ilongot warrior needs to present a human head as a sign of his manhood.
There were stories as well that in becoming an Ilongot warrior, one must present himself to the chieftain and pray to the anito (God of the Ilongot – usually represented as a wooden statue sitting on his feet) for blessing and sign that his head hunting is favorable to God.

 John Bull Library > CFC Articles > Get a Head : A History of Ritualistic Headhunting
Interestingly enough, the hornbill also appears in the headhunting cult of the Ilongot of the northern Philippines, though that is the only similarity between the two cults.
With the adoption of the soul of the slain rival, headhunting was rather a reconciling action, as the head (as bearer of the soul, of course) was treated in a friendly manner, the people of the group the victor belonged to regarding the head (soul) as a part of theirs.
The Ilongot of the Philippines did not really care for their heads -the heads of their enemies that would be theirs, that is. With the Ilongot, headhunting was not the joy of gaining a new family member.

 Opinion
No Ilongot wife or mother knew if her husband or son would return to the house whenever he left.
It was the dream of every Ilongot boy to be able to cut off a head so that he could wear the beautiful body and hair decorations showing that he was a true man. My father fashioned my head-hunting earrings from the beak of the hornbill, a large bird in our area.
The story may not be a fraud (at least not completely, it is sensationalist in the least) as the Ilongot were headhunters until 1974.

The murder of William Jones - a part Native American - by Ilongot tribesmen in 1909, will never be forgotten by 20th Century historians, nor anthropologists around the world.
At the time, the understanding of the Ilongots was incomplete, which is also evident from Jones' misinterpretations of Ilongot behaviour.
In addition to learning about Dr. Jones' life, there are several important references to Ilongot material culture that are in the interest of any collector of tribal art - be it Philippine or other - to read.

"If you ask an older Ilongot man of Northern Luzon, Phillipines, why he cuts off human heads," Rosaldo observes, "he says that rage, born of grief, impels him to kill his fellow human beings.

Rosaldo was able to connect his intellect with his emotional life in a way that enabled him to understand the Ilongot, even if he continued to be shocked and repelled by their practices.
