Abstract
This paper looked into the traditional forest conservation knowledge/technologies in the Philippines as practiced by the Ifugaos in the Northern Luzon which contributes to sustainability of production systems. It described the various knowledge systems for natural resources management showcasing the different beliefs, culture and traditions of the indigenous peoples. The unique system of the Ifugaos in tending forests known as the "muyong system" could be viewed as a forest conservation strategy, a watershed rehabilitation technique, a farming system or an assisted natural regeneration (ANR) strategy. The knowledge system has been transmitted from generation to generation, making the lives ans aspirations of the indigenous peoples in harmony with their physical and social surroundings. Based on the present indications, the system plays a significant role in promoting the sustainability of the forest and the cultural and important values of the Ifugao people.
