About The Bario Highlands
History : Over a century ago, the Kelabits were involved in head hunting raids, not so much for ritual purposes but as a means to prove one's courage, bravery, guts or valiancy, and to get even with their enemy. However, things have changed. Today among other things, the Kelabits are well-known for the friendliness and hospitality. They embraced Christianity during the 1940s through the influence of Guru Paul, also known as Nimang Tepun.
