Two elders of the Bagobo tribe share some moments of joy and laughter.

The Bagobo are proud people with proto Malayan features. While many are in economically depressed circumstances, a great number have attained a considerable degree of self-sufficiency. Most of the Bagobo have suffered dislocation from the loss of their ancestral lands and the effects of modern day insurgency.

Taken at a tribal village of the Bagobo tribe in Kapatagan, Davao del Sur, Philippines.
