One of the most colorful and culturally diverse, yet unheralded provinces in the country is Nueva Vizcaya.

Embraced by the mighty mountain ranges of the Cordillera, Caraballo and Sierra Madre, the province is home to 18 indigenous peoples   that have made it their home for centuries.

Its major tribes include the Ifugao of the towns of Quezon, Bagabag and Kasibu;  Gaddang of Solano, Bayombong;  Isinai of Dupax del Sur and Bambang;  Dumagat of Aritao;  Kalanguya of Sta. Fe; and the Bugkalot of Alfonso Castañeda and Dupax del Norte.

This cultural diversity came to the fore once more as Nueva Vizcaya recently celebrated the Grand Ammungan Festival to mark its 175th founding anniversary.  –  Read More:  http://lifestyle.inquirer.net/165843/nueva-vizcaya-mounts-ammungan-fest-celebrates-diversity#ixzz37U5VSE1n
