In the center of Mindanao, Dr. Abati’s team spends time with a simple, peaceful people called the Tala-andig, which means “people of the mountains.” The Tala-andig live in close contact with nature, far from the reach of technology. They survive by cultivating cassava and batata, fishing for frogs and hunting the occasional wild boar. They are very curious about the world beyond their mountains but also fear it. Missionaries don’t come to their remote lands. The Tala-andig are impoverished but content in their simple way of life.
