Tradition and Transformation: Studies on Cordillera Indigenous Culture
Edited by Delfin Tolentino Jr., this book gathers some of anthropologist June Prill-Brett's most important works on the indigenous societies of the Northern Luzon highlands. Written over a period of 25 years, these works deal with Cordillera indigenous political institutions, local concepts of territorial boundaries, common property regimes, agricultural practices, customary law governing the use of natural resources, gender relations, "tribal" war, old burial practices, and indigenous rituals. The anthology ends with an ethnohistory of the city of Baguio which narrates the events leading to the establishment of a colonial hill station in the Benguet highlands and the subsequent displacement of the native Ibaloy.
