Atta, Pudtol

The few remaining Pudtol Attas live along the Abulog River in Pudtol, northeastern Apayao (CAR), south of Pamplona. Theirs is an Ibanag language, which is closely related to those of the Gaddang, Itawis, Agta, Yogad, Isneg, and Malaweg.

The Atta Pudtol share the province with the Isnegs, who comprise the majority ethnic group in Pudtol. The Atta Pudtol build their houses along rivers and waterways, where an abundance of protein-rich food is available.
