(This revisit of a piece way back was triggered by an e-mail ribbing from Igorot Global Organization (IGO) president Ceasar Castro who dropped what he was doing to welcome me last October. He wondered what IGO would have in return for my sharing Ifugao jokes at its 9th International Igorot Consultation come April at the Baguio Country Club. The retelling is for all of you out there - Igorots and Cordillerans by birth, blood, marriage, sentiment, choice and heart - who reconnected recently, provoking a parody of William Bloyd’s line: There are places in the heart which do not yet exist, into which humor enters to give them existence.)
INDIGENOUS wisdom and knowledge. Respect for the environment and understanding of sustainability. Thorough grasp of landscape engineering. Innovation, creativity, sheer industry, clear vision, mission, goals, objectives and targets.
