Old men here speak of ancient rites and customs in the past tense. But Lakay Arsenio Ligod still tells about Annusan and his beloved Bangan, the romance of the man who came from the sunrise region (beska-an), and the woman of the sunset land (dapnisan). They sing their legends in Kankanaey, but some old men insist that they be sung in Ilocano “so that these guests will understand it better.” (from p. 5)

Lakay Canuto Bayang will sing of the naughty Donya Annagud and how she seduced an Igorot with the help of Putot, her tailless pet pig; of the lovely Donya Senas who was beheaded by the naranggas nga Igorot, and brought back to life by a folk medic who couldn’t cure himself; of Indayuan, the lovely daughter of the founding father of the town of Sugpon, and collective symbol of Sugpon townfolks; of the handsome hunter with whom an enchanted frog falls in love and gets pregnant by eating his leftovers, goes to the river to perform the after-birth ritual washing, and there becomes again the truly lovely woman that she was. And Gumatan... brings her home to transform his shame into pride. (from p.6)
