Provincial Profile

The original inhabitants of Nueva Vizcaya were wild and semi-wild tribes.  The wild tribes were the Igorots, Ifugaos, Ilongots and the Aetas.  The semi-wild tribe includes the Gaddangs and the Maalats.  The former led a nomadic life and roamed over the Cordillera, Ilongot Regions and Sierra Madre Mountain Ranges.  The latter pursued a semi-nomadic existence along the river valleys and plains through hunting, fishing and cultivating of rice and sweet potatoes.

Endowed with rich natural resources, particularly in agriculture, the province attracts other tribes from other regions of the country.  Among the migrants who form a big portion of the population are the Ilocanos, Tagalogs, Pangasinenses, Kapampangans and others.
