Highland Colors

Highland Colors

The highlanders are a proud people and rightly so considering their ancestry and remarkable cultural heritage. In fact, outsiders or lowlanders are not allowed to own property in the highlands unless they marry a local. This is to avoid speculation and to keep ownership limited as much as possible to the indigenous people. We had a chance to view some sort of celebration while in Sagada and the colors and sound were indeed unique to these people. It’s moments like these when I wish I had HD video capability 🙂
