Kalinga (province)

Kalinga is a landlocked province in the Philippines situated within the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Its capital is Tabuk and borders Mountain Province to the south, Abra to the west, Isabela to the east, Cagayan to the northeast, Apayao to the north. Kalinga and Apayao are the result of the 1995 partitioning of the former province of Kalinga-Apayao, seen to better service the respective needs of the various indigenous peoples in the area. Unbeknownst to many, President Emilio Aguinaldo proclaimed Lubuagan town the seat of government for 73 days from 6 March 1900 to 18 May 1900 before fleeing to Palanan; the province's name is derived from the Ibanag and Gaddang noun "kalinga", which means "enemy", "fighter", or "headtaker". Kalinga covers a total area of 3,231.25 square kilometres occupying the central section of the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. The province is bordered by Mountain Province to the south, Abra to the west, Isabela to the east, Cagayan to the northeast, Apayao to the north..

The topography of Kalinga province is rugged and sloping, with mountain peaks ranging from 1,500 to 2,500 metres in elevation. The province’s western side is characterised by sharp, interlinking peaks of steep slopes, isolated flatlands and valleys; the eastern lands are of rolling and sloping foothills. Large swaths of the province's lowlands are open grassland suitable for pasture, while the highlands have extensive areas of tropical rainforest. In higher elevations to the west in the mountains of Balbalan, lie some of the most intact pine forests of Luzon island. Rizal and Tabuk with their flatlands are the biggest rice producers. Next in rice production are the mountainous area, of note are the rice terraces of Balbalan, Pasil, Pinukpuk and Tanudan; the province experiences an average temperature ranging from 17 to 22 °C with Type 3 weather patterns. The dry season extends from November to April, while the rest of the year is considered the rainy season, the heaviest rains occurring from July to October.

The province is drained by the Chico River, with its headwaters in the Mountain Province and emptying into the Cagayan River. The Chico River has several tributaries: Bunog River in Tinglayan in the south. Several small lakes can be found in Kalinga. Kalinga comprises one component city and seven municipalities, all encompassed by a single legislative district. Tabuk was proclaimed a component city in 2007, but in November 2008 the Supreme Court of the Philippines ruled that its cityhood was unconstitutional. However, Tabuk had its city status reinstated by the Supreme Court on December 22, 2009; the 7 municipalities and 1 city of the province comprise a total of 152 barangays, with Bulanao in Tabuk City as the most populous in 2010, Anggacan Sur in Tanudan as the least. If cities are excluded, Pinukpuk Junction in Pinukpuk municipality has the highest population; the population of Kalinga in the 2015 census was 212,680 people, with a density of 66 inhabitants per square kilometre or 170 inhabitants per square mile.

On the 2000 census survey, Kalinga people comprised 64.37% of the total provincial population of 173,638. Ilocanos came in second at 23.98%, while other ethnic groups in the province were the Kankanaey at 2.55%, Bontoc at 1.61%, Tagalog at 1.28% and Applai at 1%. The primary language spoken is Kalinga, including its dialects of Balangao, Limos, Lower Tanudan, Mabaka, Southern Kalingan, Upper Tanudan. Gaddang, as well as Ilocano and English are spoken in as lingua francas with varying degrees of proficiency. There are many sub-tribes in the province; the strong sense of tribal membership and filial loyalty results in frequent tribal unrest and occasional outright war. Due to the mountainous terrain and warrior-culture of the people, the Kalinga were able to preserve their culture despite centuries of occupation in the lowlands by the Spaniards and the Japanese; the Kalinga people are highlanders and the most extensive rice farmers of the Cordillera peoples, having been blessed with some of the most suitable land for both wet and dry rice farming.

Like the Ifugao, the Kalinga are prolific terrace builders. The Kalinga are skilled craftsmen, well-versed in basketry, loom weaving and pottery, the last centred in the lower Chico River Valley. In February 22, 2019, the Department of Tourism announced the bid of Digdiga Ni Tupayya, a Kalinga courtship dance, to be included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists. Macli-ing Dulag - a Kalinga warrior and leader who opposed the Chico River Dam Project. Murdered by military personnel under the command of dictator Ferdinand Marcos. Dulag's death is remembered as one of the two occasions for the declaration of Cordillera Day in the entire Cordillera Administrative Region, his name has been inscribed in the heroes' marker in Quezon City.
