BUKIDNON WOMEN, MINDANAO
a The women wear long-sleeved upper garments of scarlet, blue and white patchwork. Their skirts are long and may be fashioned of the above-mentioned materials, or made of solid pieces of cloth. They wear rings of brass or silver on their fingers and toes, the number increasing with the wealth of the owner until individual digits are completely covered and hence become practically useless.a
A BUKIDNON BELLE
Though most of the Bukidnon are still pagan there are a few who are Christian. To this number the girl shown in the picture belongs. Note the cross, and the two rosaries worn around the neck. The necklace is formed of silver coins, Spanish, English and Mexican pieces being represented. The extremely modern pink celluloid comb forms a curious finish to this otherwise picturesque costume.
