Conservation of Ifugao Values
The Ifugao culture in the Philippines is experiencing various cultural changes as it connects increasingly to the non-Ifugao societies. These changes in Ifugao society, such as agriculture, religion, and tourism, are examined, and the stakeholders’perceptions reported. Mirrored by economic, social, and environmental problems occurred in the prevailing trend of global development, the value of the traditional Ifugao culture is discovered as the values of communal cooperation and a sustainable relationship with nature. While existing conservation measures focus on Ifugao’s cultural practices, it is argued that the conservation of Ifugao values is key to maintaining the culture, and has significance even to the modern world.
