IGOROT DEFINITION

Defining Igorot calls for a painstakingly skeptical sketch of words. Some people, who don’t want to be identified as Igorots, may be included in the definition. Others, however, want to be defined as Igorots but may not fit the definition. It is then safe to take a look at the available popular definitions on the web

2. WIKIPILIPINAS

3. ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA

IGOROT CONTROVERSIES

The stigma attached to the name Igorot is not a new thing. The most talked about Igorot controversies are:

1. CARLOS P. ROMULO (THE IGOROT IS NOT A FILIPINO) during our grandparent’s time, and

2. CANDY PANGILINAN (TAO PO AKO, HINDI AKO IGOROT) just recently.

FAMOUS IGOROT PEOPLE

There are not many celebrities out there who are of Igorot descent. Does this prove the stigma attached to the Igorot race? Apparently, Igorots are not fond of celebrities or of becoming one as compared to the lowlanders. Here are some Igorot people who made it to the limelight:

CONFIRMED:

The late Marky Cielo (actor who is, by the way, Igorot-Bisaya but was more proud to declare his Igorot blood), Ingrid Payaket (singer), and Eric Salvador (beautyy pageant winner) are Igorot celebrities who proudly and openly declared that they are Igorot.

RUMORED: Rumored Igorot celebrities who neither confirmed nor denied

Angel Aquino (actress, model, TV host)

Zorayda Andam (beauty queen, lawyer, TV Host)

Paulo Avelino (actor)

Gwen Garci (actress)

Bernadette Sembrano (TV host)
