The Dutchman who choose to live life as an Igorot

Johanne "Brother James" Schorsch, an adopted son of Bontoc, Mountain Province with an Igorot name "FANGYACHEW" or "Fanjacho".

He gave up everything and choose to live as an Igorot wearing only his "bahag" wherever he goes.

He spent more than 30 years of his life rendering assistance to anyone in and out of the Cordilleras. He can speak local languages like Kankana-ey and Ilocano fluently and even denounced his Dutch citizenship.

According to some, he is now living in the province of Aurora.

Meet Tatay Feliciano (Uncle Lotnu, his Igorot name)

From a small village called Bayyo in Bontoc Mountain Province, now 70 yrs. Old, married, but his wife left him 30 yrs ago. Met a man in Canada, and never came back. Now he is on his own, no parents, all his siblings are gone too.

He tends a public toilet which is clean, and lives through tips by people who pose with him for a photo.

Life is truly colorful, it has stories that will really break your heart. There is nothing certain in this world. But in God, everything is sure, and Yes and Amen. Even if all things fail , God will never ever fail. Left him with a reasonable tip and we took with us his friendly happy smile.

Bontoc chieftain Antonio and the different types of Bontoc spears

Behind Bontoc chieftain Antonio are the different types of Bontoc spears.

He is holding a two barbed "Falfeg". The "Falfeg" was barbed, not for enhanced human or game killing ability but for more spiritual purposes.

Being animist, the Bontoc Igorots believed that the barbs are there to ensnare spirits. The more barbs, made the Falfeg a more effective weapon to fight evil spirits.
