Philippine Inquirer on May 14 ran a news item on the Belgians having named a tunnel after an Igorot named Timicheg. Turns out, Timicheg was among the “exotic people” put on display in the 1913 Ghent Fair (more on this here. The news further says Timicheg came from Mountain Province.
Anyway, about the label exotic. This is still accorded to indigenous peoples. Joke is, Igorots are horned half-animals. As if they are not Filipinos too.
