This research examines the role of dress of the Igorots, mountain peoples from the northern Philippine Islands, at the beginning of the twentieth century both within their own land and in the United States as a part of the 1904 World's Fair. The Louisiana Purchase Exposition, held in St. Louis, Missouri, has been described as the "Coronation of Civilization" (Rydell, 1984) and served as the cultural touchstone for the nation at that time.
