The Pattong is a Bontoc war dance performed to stir the courage and strength of headhunters and warriors preparing to attack their enemies. The movements are mostly improvised but generally 2groups of warriors mimic the pursuit and fight that they are planning to engage in. This dance is also performed as a rain dance in Central Bontoc to ask the god Lumawig to send rain, from February to April.
