Reviews

Average Rating of 4 from 1 reviews: ****

A must reading for students of Philippine Culture and History. Just e careful aout Garvan's own cultural biases, like when he calls "gods" the dwellers of the Manobo spirit world. I also do not agree that neighboring tribes like the Mansaka, Mandaya, Tagakawlo, Samal, etc. are Manobo, although individual members of these tribes may have Manobo blood, and Manobo folklores, beliefs and practices may have affected these neighboring people; just as I wont call Englishmen French even if there are cultural similarities and blood comingling between these two people.
