The Aeta (pronounced as “eye-ta,”), or Agta are an indigenous people who live in scattered, isolated mountainous parts of Luzon. They are considered to be Negritos, who are dark to very dark brown skinned and tend to have features such as a small stature, small frame, curly hair, small nose, and dark brown eyes. Genetic research shows that the Aeta are as far removed from peoples of African ancestry as Europeans are. They are thought to be the first inhabitants of the Philippines, preceding the Austronesian migrations
Aeta - a name before the spaniards colonized and renamed everything except for our language
