The Philippines - Remote Tribes from the North to Tawi-Tawi in the South
Soaring thousands of feet into the sky, verdant two-thousand year old rice terraces sustain water-filled paddies perched precariously at the edges of towering, steep-sloped mountains. Secluded, seldom-visited inimitable tribes dwelling at subsistence levels in isolated distant jungles and rain forests cling to distinctive thousand year-old customs and cultures, practicing survival mechanisms crafted throughout the millennia. Nomadic tribes living on remote, outlying islands survive by cultivating rich mountainside soil, enriched by traditional slash and burn practices, providing sustenance in their seclusion from the modern world. Come along and watch The Philippines.
