What Are Their Lives Like?

The Ibanag live in the Nueva Vizcaya, Luzon, Isabela and Cagayan provinces. The Ibanag derive their name from the word "I" which means "people" and the word "Bannag" which means "river." Around half a million speak the Ibanag language. Most also speak Filipino or Ilocano as well. The Ibanag adapt and assimilate easily and this is often evident in elements of their culture. Their livelihood is fishing and agriculture. Previously the grooms parents would be responsible for all the expenses of a wedding. Today, the cost is shared between the parents of both parties. Ibanag tend to be taller than other peoples in the Philippines. They often identify each other by the color of their elbows, noting that their elbows tend to be darker than other Filipinos.
