A Delicate Balance
A Delicate Balance: Batanes Food, Ecology, and Community by Corazon S. Alvina and Marian Pastor Roces explores the traditional food of Batanes from the perspective of those who live in the various micro-ecosystems in its three inhabited islands, demonstrating how the local Ivatan people have long lived with their unique geography. Probing the links between nature and culture, it brings together scientists and culture writers and represents another stage in food and ecological writing, where integration is vital.
It is the first publication under the imprint of the Museo ng Kaalamang Katutubo, or MusKKat, a museum established in 2013 which aims to sustain Philippine ancestral indigenous knowledge systems through research and curatorial initiatives.
