These form one of the many island groups that hang like a fringe or festoon on the skirt of the continent of Asia. Like most of the islands in the Pacific, the Philippines are inhabited by people belonging to the brown race, one of the great divisions of the family of mankind.

The Philippines are shared by many tribes, all belonging to the same brown race. People of one tribe may be found on one of these islands- those of a different tribe are living on another- or one tribe may live in a valley and its neighbour in the hills- and so on to the number of eighty tribes.

Each tribe has its own customs and ways. And yet weshall call these various peoples of the brown race our cousins- for not only are they our kindred by the ties which unite all the races of men in this world- they have been adopted into the family of our own nation, the United States of America. The people of these islands are many of them wild and distrustful children. They have no faith in us- they do not wish to obey our laws. If we are in earnest in our wish to do them good, and not harm, we must learn to know them better, so that we may understand their needs.

That is one reason why we are going to learn about our little Philippine cousin, Alila of Luzon.
