Maybe first I should explain about agamangs. In the Ifugao culture, an agamang is a children’s dormitory. Among the Ifugao, children don’t live with their parents, they live in either a boys’ agamang or a girls’ agamang. At night, the boys visit the girls in the girls’ agamang. After puberty, Ifugao children have many sexual partners before marriage. After marriage, it is similar to Christian and I’d guess also like Buddhist relationships.
So Step Four and the proper use of sex, which is part of Right Action or morality among Buddhists, is different than among the Ifugao people. They have a different view of right and wrong.
My oldest brother learned about the Ifugao tribe when he studied geography as a sophomore in high school. When Gramps learned that his grandson was learning about the headhunters with odd sexual behavior, he asked my brother to ask the teacher if he was aware.Turns out the teacher did not know about it, and by the time my next brother was a sophomore, the teacher had removed the Ifugao from the curriculum.
Hi Ghid. what I have read is that sexual violence including rape is becoming more common now amongst the Ifugao. Can you confirm this? I have also read that a lot of tribal communities have been effected by pornography where someone shows these things on their phone. It seems this is often the reason given for the rape which is much the same as in other agrarian societies. I'm thinking especially of how it is in rural India.
