The Aeta's First Climate Change Explorers of The Philippines!

The Aeta People of African Descent were the original people of all of the Pacific Islands, from Hawaii, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, and more. Who are the indigenous Aeta tribes? The Aeta tribes are believed to be the first inhabitants of the Philippines.

Aetas are characterized by their skin color, height, and hair type. They mostly have black to dark-brown skin, kinky or curly hair, and are usually below five-feet tall. Traditionally, Aetas are hunting and gathering indigenous people. They are said to have first arrived in the Philippines some 20,000 to 30,000 years ago during the ice age from Borneo by foot through an isthmus, which is now part of Palawan. The aboriginal Aetas or Aeti speak the language of the same name Ati, also called Binisaya nga Inati, which is spoken by approximately 1,500 people.
