This research paper was written as a requirement for Anthropology 225 – Philippine Culture and Society – under Dr. Maria Mangahas, an elective taken at the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy at the University of the Philippines Diliman. Dr. Mangahas assigned the students reading material for the research paper based on each one’s background and interests.
Cindy had been assigned three tribes – the Ilongot, the Teduray and the Tausug. As a graduate student of Women and Development Studies, she was attracted to the male-female dynamic prominent in the readings on all three tribes and thus explored this in the research paper, which was submitted in March 2008.
Cindy also had the good fortune of interviewing Al-Sadr Tammang, her Tausug student, for this paper. Mr. Tammang had also been a guest of honor at Cindy’s anthropology presentation, where Dr. Mangahas and the class had the opportunity to inquire about Tausug culture and society.
