Abstract:Media representations of the Philippine indigenous people Igorot continue to exoticize and freeze them in an ideal; primitive past. This paper foregrounds certain cultural products now being produced by the Igorot using modern technology and media. In these self-conscious products; where they exercise agency; how are they representing themselves? In such songs where they use their own languages; they construct who they are and what they have become. Using mostly American folk; rock and country melodies; they tell stories of how they are making sense of their experiences in an unevenly globalizing; runaway world.
