This 2021 Likhang Katutubo Planner celebrates the arts and crafts of indigenous peoples of the Philippines. The planner showcases 25 colored plates from the ethnographic and archaeological collection of the Artiste Museum, an institutional member of the museum of the International Council of Museums (ICOM).
Among the material culture that are depicted in this planner are utilitarian and ritual objects coming from various ethnic groups in the country, such as Bontok, Gaddang, Ifugao, Ilongot (Bugkalot), Maranao, Pala'wan, Tagbanwa, and T'boli. By making these artifacts visible to the public it will trigger interest in doing further research about these objects as well as other anthropological materials in general.
