About Luz Manao

Luz Lawagan was a member of the Kalinga tribe of Bontoc Mountain Province. It has been known that the family members upon the death of Luz Lawagan-Manao inhearited old head hunter necklaces, beeds and other types of jewelry. The Mones, Manao and Palma family that inherited the jewely and personal Kalinga belongings were split between all three families. All three families decided to donate the jewelry to the local Bontoc Mountain Province museum to show generations of igorots their proud heritage and to keep true to the belief that no artifact should leave the province without the tribes approval. Even today you can see all the Bontoc artifacts and donated pieces of history proudly displayed and all of Luz Lawagan-Manao's jewelry. It has been a on going joke that the artifiacts dontacted by the families were what helped the museum grow to the size it is today.
