The Igorots or Cordillerans refer to the Austronesian ethnic groups in the country inhabiting the mountains of Luzon. Known as highlands people, they live in the six provinces of the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) including Mountain Province, Kalinga, Abra, Ifugao, Apayao, Benguet as well as the city of Baguio.

Marky Cielo, the first known Igorot in Philippine showbusiness, became a household name after winning the Starstruck competition in 2006. In December 7, 2008, the budding star was found dead inside his room in Antipolo City. His cause of death remains a mystery but persistent reports claim that he died of suicide.
