DUMANIGU


WHAT IS THEIR PHILOSOPHY OF LIfE

"A FEROCIOUS APPEARANCE CAN DISSUADE YOUR ENEMIES AND SAFE YOUR LIFE."

Several generations ago Asaro had been hunted by their strongest enemy tribe. At that time an old man from their valley had a dream in which he saw terrifying gray spirit. Next morning the tribe made the first mask out of mud. In the morning shadow of the rainforestAsaro approached their enemies with slow movements. Once noticed enemies fled terrified and Asaro (valley name??) was saved. Every since Asaro Mudmen are convinced in the power of fear of the unknown and commemorate that event by reproducing it every year to keep the legend alive.
