Bontoc Igorot warriors showing their iron-age weapons.
Some Igorots are experienced fighters after resisting the Spaniards for 320 years. After Spain subdued the Igorots by 1890 with the use of modern rifles and cannons, the next generation of Igorots have never been involved with any warfare involving firearms.
Most tribes became farmers and traders-bringing gold and vegetables from the mountains down to the Ilocano low-lands.

Unsung Heroes: Brave Igorots helped refugees escape from Baguio during World War 2
From mid-March of 1945 through April, a steady stream of refugee civilians escaped from Baguio through Japanese lines to Tubao.
Brave Igorot guides shepherded the refugees through mountain paths in what became known as the "Refugee Trail".
Among those who escaped were Manuel Roxas, Filomena Osmeña, daughter of President Sergio Osmeña; Jose Yulo, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court; Antonio de las Alas, Minister of Finance; and Teofilo Sison, Minister of the Interior.
