Ammungan Festival

A contingent from Bagabag town is adorned in traditional Gaddang attire at the 2018 Grand Ammungan Festival parade on Thursday, marking the 179th foundation day of Nueva Vizcaya. Meanwhile, descendants of the fearsome Ilongot headhunters perform the Tagem (inset), a ritual dance usually done before male tribesmen are sent off to an expedition. The Ilongots have renounced headhunting after a peace pact with neighboring tribes in the 1970s and have called themselves Bugkalots after embracing the Christian faith.
