Ifugao Philippines - - - - 1981 Crim, Keith (ed.). The Perennial Dictionary of World Religions. San Francisco: Harper Collins (1989). Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 710. "The Ifugaos of the highlands of Luzon have similar ideas: they posit the existence of five realms, the known world of humans being contrasted with a skyworld and an underworld and with a region downstream and one upstream... In marked contrast to this limited pantheon among the Semang, the Ifugaos, a horticultural people living in the mountains of Luzon, recognize some forty classes of different types of divinities. Perhaps as many as fifteen hundred different named supernatural beings have been identified for the Ifugaos, although not all beings are recognized in a single Ifugao community. "
