Ayta Ambala

The Ayta AMBALA Indigenous Peoples are located in the southern tip of the Zambales Mountain Ranges occupying some areas of Southwestern Pampanga, Southern Zambales and Northern Bataan. Just like most of the remaining traditional Ayta communities, they continue to practice slash-and-burn or swidden agriculture locally known as “gasak” and “kalaanan”. Urbanization played a major role in changing some aspects of Ayta Ambala way of life in recent years but the people are able to maintain their unique identity and culture.
