The Igorrotes were a tribe from a region north of the Philippines called Bontoc, and in 1905, showman Truman Hunt decided to travel all the way there and transport fifty Igorrotes to Coney Island. There, he paid them to showcase their native practices, in exaggeration, within the “Igorrote Village.” Luna Park advertised these sideshow performers as “head hunting, dog eating savages,” and had them eat real dogs in front of horrified audiences.
