A WILD TINGIAN GIRL OF APAYAO
Note the peculiar mother-of-pearl ornaments and the blade of the miniature headaxe thrust into the hair. Among this tribe a blue thread tied around a girla s ankle is a sign that she is unmarried.
A WILD TINGIAN OF APAYAO
The Tingian mana s loin cloth is almost invariably blue and in his upper garments he exhibits a decided partiality for gay colors, especially for red and yellow, two colors usually combined in his turban. As a rule he does not cut his hair and is not above supplementing the natural growth by such a feminine addition as a switch.
