Age-old fishing practices of villagers continue to preserve and sustain life in the rivers of this farming town in Mountain Province. Tributaries of the Siffu River that zigzag through the town serve as crucial lifeblood for most villagers whose main source of livelihood comes from growing rice, corn and bananas. From its headwaters in the towns of Barlig and Natonin, the river cuts through Ifugao province before draining into the Magat Dam in Ramon, Isabela province.
