Kankanaey, Southern

The Southern Kankanaeys inhabit Mankayan, Bakun, Kibungan, Buguias, and the upper half of Kapangan in Benguet Province, Cordillera Administrative Region. Like the Ibaloi (the other group of Benguet Igorot), the Southern Kankanaey are also called Benguet. The Ibaloi occupy the lower and more developed areas of the province, including the Baguio City and the vegetable-growing valley of La Trinidad. The Southern Kankanaeys are said to be an expansion of the northern Kankanaey group.
