AGHAMTAO is the official publication of the Ugnayang Pang-Aghamtao, Inc. (UGAT), the Anthropological Association of the Philippines. Beginning with its maiden issue in 1978 devoted to a stocktaking of Anthropology in the Philippines, AGHAMTAO continues to provide a forum for the “scholarship and practice of anthropology” in the Philippines. AGHAMTAO features papers read in annual conferences as well as reports from special events organized by UGAT. AGHAMTAO comes out as a regular issue in October. All articles are screened by the Editorial Board, and undergo a double-blind review process.
