The Story of an IGOROT Lady

I have always dreamed of becoming a writer when I was a young girl.  Believe me, I was an Igorot but my dream was not to write in my own language but to write in English.

I have always been so curious about a lot of things. I started coining stories in my mind when I was only 8. I could still remember how I loved to sit by our window and watched the rain as they fell in torrents and the water rushed to the open canals. There I would create stories in my young mind, just like how my father and my sister told us stories.

This Igorot Man's Reaction Shocked the Lady Vendor

by: Felisa Daskeo

If you see a dirty man wearing a G-string, what will you do?

It is a fact to many Filipinos that Igorots look poor and dirty.  I don’t deny that my old folks look dirty poor plus their nails and hands are stained brown because their occupation is farming.  But beyond those stained nails and sunburned skin is a secret nobody expects.

This anecdote was related by my late father, who loves telling us stories.
