A Tagbanua Weekend

The Tagbanua and Pala'wan tribes are known to be farmers and fishermen. Men and women toil to support the family and the images here show some of the crops they usually sell. Gum resins and upland rice used to be common trades until sanctions were placed against the tribes. Banana, sweet potatoes, seashells, fishes and sting rays are usually sold or bartered for other products deemed indispensable for mountain living.
