WELCOME! TO "Being Igorota!"

(Previously called "Everything Joyce Does")

Why is my page called "Being Igorota"?

I was born and raised in Baguio and Benguet, Philippines and moved to New York City (I am an official New Yorker!). I am a Teaching Artist as well as a producer and a performer. The word "Igorot" (also referred to as Cordilleran) is a collective word that refers to the tribes and indigenous/aboriginal people from the Northern highlands and mountains of the Philippines. The Igorot and Cordilleran people are divided into subtribes. Studies and DNA research traced where our ancestors are originally from Southern China, West China & present-day Taiwan.  


My purpose is to represent my community and to be a visible face of the indigenous communities around the world.
