1961   Mr. Isabelo Montejo was "Mr. PM." He took these PMs out to remote areas in an old van called the "Glory Wagon." He showed Christian movies using a generator and then left a PM in the village. This photo shows him presenting a PM to a village of Ilongots. Ilongots were "head hunters." The man on the left is Mr. Florentino Santos, a missionary with the New Tribes Mission, who is receiving the PM for the settlement, established to save Ilongot Christians from the military operations of the Philippine Constabulary seeking to put an end to the practice of headhunting. Search word: Ilongot.
