A story retold in Tagalog with English translation.

The story is a retelling of the epic Hudhud ng mga Ifugao, which has been passed down orally from generation to generation among the natives of the Ifugao province, who are best known for building the famous Rice Terraces of the Philippines. Hudhud ng mga Ifugao is an epic that is usually told during harvest season or during wakes.

The tradition of hudhud is as old as the technology of the rice terraces. It is believed that the hudhud is a gift from heaven. Its performance can last from three to four days. This book is recommended for lessons in civics, culture, and the oral literature of the Cordillera.
