Immerse yourself in the magical world, filled with superstitions, customs, and charm. These tales, gathered from homes, campfires, and pagan priests, span tribes from savagery to advanced cultures: Tinguian, Igorot, Mindanao's Wild Tribes, Moro, and Christian.

Tinguian mythology features heroic figures, not celestial beings, whose legendary deeds include talking with jars, creating humans from betel-nuts, raising the dead, and shape-shifting—abilities still believed today. The heroes also interacted with animate heavenly bodies, and the stories reveal ancient customs and beliefs about planting, healing, and the origins of the moon’s spots.

These stories explain the origins of many practices and objects and are also told to entertain and pass the time.
