Rapidly advancing globalization impacts indigenous people worldwide. In this long-term study of a remote village famous for its World Heritage-listed rice terraces, where the people actively confront globalization, Shimizu Hiromu considers the extent to which globalization has penetrated even the remote mountains of the Philippines at the grassroots level. The book examines globalization in Ifugao Province since Spain's colonization of the Philippines through to the new wave of migrant workers traveling overseas. By focusing on the village of Hapao and its reforestation and cultural revival movement led by Lopez Nauyac, as well as the work of world-renowned film director Kidlat Tahimik and his attempt to remake himself as an authentic Filipino, this book examines globalization from the periphery and shows that we are all deeply connected in the contemporary era of globalization.
