Ana Dulnuan-Habbiling stands with umbrella in a rice field

Banaue, Ifugao, Philippines, 8 August 2016: Ana Dulnuan-Habbiling is an Ifugaon leader with extensive knowledge of the Rice world in the area where she lives in the highlands of the Philippines. There is a long-standing tradition of rice growing in this area, something Ana speaks of as a tribute to the memory of her ancestors. She is seen with her family rice stocks, cleaning and preparing rice, cooking it and serving it to her family. She is also seen as she begins to clear her ceremonial rice paddy, something that will be seen by the other villagers as a sign that they too must begin to ready their paddies for planting. The rice they plant is known as aromatic and glutenous rice, a small group of rice strains they try to preserve and protect. Ana visited the International Rice Research Institute in Manila a few years ago where she was able to find a strain of rice her ancestors grew and which had been lost to her community, she now grows that rice again and is grateful to IRRI for the chance, in her words, to honor her ancestors.
