The AETA peoples of LUZON Philippines

The AETA peoples of LUZON

Among the FIRST INDIGENOUS people of the Philippines are the AETA.

Image

The Aeta (Ayta, pronounced EYE-tə), or Agta, are an indigenous people who live in scattered, isolated mountainous parts of Luzon, Philippines.

Image

They are considered to be Negritos, who are dark to very dark brown-skinned and tend to have features such as a small stature, small frame, curly to kinky afro-like textured hair with a higher frequency of naturally lighter hair color (blondism) relative to the general population, small nose, and dark brown eyes.

They are thought to be among the earliest inhabitants of the Philippines, preceding the Austronesian migrations

They have a LIFE EXPECTANCY of 27 years.

The Aeta were included in the group of people termed “Negrito” during Spanish colonial rule. Various Aeta groups in northern Luzon are known as “Pugut” or “Pugot,” a name designated by their Ilocano-speaking neighbors, and which is the colloquial term for those with darker complexions. In Ilocano, the word also means “goblin” or “forest spirit.” However, these terms are considered by fellow Negritos of northern Luzon as inappropriate and offensive.
