The Ilocano People

Some history I learned kung bakit sinasabing kuripot ang mga Ilocano. According to some books, Ilocos kasi was very poor before tapos typhoon stricken place pa. Kung baga, people of Ilocos have to save para sa mga hard times kaya laging sinasabing kuripot. Mahirap kasi ang pera doon since malayo sa Manila at wala halos ibang source of livelihood except fishing and agriculture. Ilocanos are just being practical and thrifty by saving up for the rainy days.

What I like about these people ay yung pagiging masiyahin nila despite life's hardships. They still managed to entertain themselves paminsan minsan. Mahilig sila sa sayawan at kantahan. Below are some pics ng kanilang sayawan at kantahan moments.
