Igorot family in native costumes
Most famous among the native Filipino tribes at the World's Fair were the head-hunting, dog-eating Igorrotes who wore breech clothes and a hat about the size of a tin can as their only clothing and spent a large part of their time dancing. 'Their warriors count their valor by the number of human heads they hae captured and hung in the eaves of their houses. Dog meat is a favorite food. They live in rude bamboo huts, their villages surrounded by walls of bamboo. Such a walled village was a feature of the Philippine reservation, and the 130 Igorrotes were ruled by a chief, Antonio by name, who was likewise clad in native garb, except when he went to Washington to pay his respects to Pres. Roosevelt. Then he dressed in citizen's attire.'
