Opisat, 45
Busuanga, Philippines

Opista spends most of the day fishing for her Tagbanua "family", and at night, she cooks and sings. Since the Tagbanua's subsistence life demands group-oriented behavior, work and food sharing cooperatives are forged among small groups rather than nuclear families. I spent the evening with Opista and her people, listening to her unusually beautiful voice. When I asked her about their fishing rights she told me "we don't own this territory -we just belong to it." (Tagbanua)
