Ivatan People
The Ivatans are a Filipino ethnolinguistic group predominant in the islands of Batanes
Batanes
of the Philippines. Their ethnogenesis is unclear; their origins remain untraced among scholars, but they are known to be an Austronesian group, related to neighboring Ilocanos on purely lingustic basis.

Unlike the old-type nipa huts common in the Philippines, Ivatans have adopted their now-famous stone houses made of limestone, designed to protect against the hostile climate.Contents1 Origins 2 History 3 Physical attributes 4 Demographics 5 Culture 6 See also 7 ReferencesOrigins[edit] Documents do not show much about the history of the Ivatans and at present, scholars who study their origins are still unsure as to their exact origin
