Malaweg

The Malaweg are located in sections of Cagayan Valley and Kalinga-Apayao provinces and in the town of Rizal.

Their main crops are lowland rice and corn. Tobacco was raised as a cash crop on a foothill west of Piat on the Matalag river near the southeast border of Kalinga-Apayao province, drawing Ibanags from the east.

Culturally, they are similar to the neighbor groups: Ibanag and Itawit. Linguistically, they speak dialect of Itawit.
