Maximo Garming

Discipline: Economics



In this study, it will be assumed that the social changes in Kalinga were brought about by the agricultural technology of the area. This study will be pursued in terms of describing the processes of adaptive techniques on the rice culture that developed during the earlier history of Kalinga. In fact, culture in Kalinga can be summarized as "rice culture", because from the cultivation and production of rice arose the socio-political systems and other aspects of the local culture.
