Igorots in Expositions

I've never seen these photos before. So thanks to Freda Changat for posting them on her blog. Apparently it wasn't only during the Louisiana Exposition that Igorots were displayed as curiosities. Before the St. Louis Exposition, Igorots were displayed in expositions in Seattle, Washington and Madrid Spain. They were even brought as far as Belgium.
