Other Cordilleran Teaching Resources

Old Kiyyangan Village Teacher’s Archaeology Manual

The Old Kiyyangan Village Teacher’s Archaeology Manual created by Charmaine Ledesma with Filipino translation by Pia Arboleda is a valuable resource for exploring aspects of Cordilleran history.  Although its focus is on Ifugao past lifeways, it provides a gateway for the study of Philippine indigenous culture through time, and thus supplements the modules on Ifiallig folklore. 

The manual is designed for learners ages 10-12, and can be modified to address the needs of university students. The modules may be used for educational purposes, and the teaching materials may be printed with acknowledgement of the author and translator’s copyright.
