actually headhunting was only done by non-hindic filipinos....aka igorots and highland tribes who were considered savages by the more advanced and cultured hindic filipinos who came around the iron age

Visayan kingdoms were much more cultured...being influenced by Sri-vaijya empire and all

There are some places in Visayas that do witchcraft & other places in the Philippines too. Capiz is popular place when it comes to this and they can play human paper dance moves without holding it. Some black magic thing.

GMA7 was the one who aired it. That the tub was being used by the witchcraft before.

They even make a movie about Siquijor regarding witchcraft thing. I think the title was 'Siquijor' (the Mystic Island)

Nope me and my family do not look like Igorots too...we fall in another Filipino category. My younger sister look a bit like former singer actress Donna Cruz, my brother is similar to Jericho Rosales and John Lloyd Cruz. So you see, do not stereotype every Filipino women by saying everyone look like a Chinese or Viet. There are different categories... But I should say, most Filipinos look Malay and Shamcee Supsup is a typical Filipina beauty for me.

They have spanish surnames because the asians there adopted the Spanish surnames from the conquistadores at that time. Only 0.1% of the populace has any European Spanish blood at all. Their ethnicities are from China mainly but can derive from other Asian countries. The Spanish had a strong influence in religion, culture, and tagalog but if you are talking about race then no they are not caucasian like the Spanish were.
