Igorots are classed as one and are docile. I do not think they are included in the list of head-hunters. For many years they have been in contact with the Spaniards and the Christian Filipinos of the plain. Their distinctive feature is a cloth, worn about the head like a semi-turban. The women wear waists, which shows the Christian influence, but away from the mission schools of Baguio and Sagada, and the influence of the whites, they are a dirty, squalid lot, but well put up.
The fourth evening out we rode into Cervantes, a Christian town with Igorot trimmings, rather an important place in Spanish days. From here there is a cart road to the seaport of Tagudin, two days away. This is usually the way people come in to Bontoc.
Before crossing over from Lepanto to Bontoc, we came to the Episcopal Mission School at Sagada, which is certainly worthy of notice. Father Staunton and his wife heard of this pagan village with 4,000 souls and decided to move up there
