Hipongor, Himbotok, & Himvoto... what do all these strange words mean?
The small towns around Hungduan and Banaue aren't that far from each other. Many are only a day or two by foot. Yet their language has evolved quite a bit for a people living so close. A bunch or bundle of rice is called either a hipongor, a himbotok, or a himvoto, depending on which town you lived. Similarly sounding but clearly different. Isn't it amazing how the evolution of language, and likely culture, can take place even among such nearby communities? Enjoy.
