Ibanag Folk Books
Ibanag folks literature, like any other materials, is the phrase of Cagayano's joys and sorrows, desires and worries, love and hatred, the very ingredients that whipped up all the fictional genre passed down to us.

Each one of these conflicts, considering that the glorious times of Ibanag renowned heroes, Biuag and Malana, and since the heroic times during the Magalad and Dayag, have got brought enmity, disunity, divisiveness, lust for wealth and self, and also to use the words and phrases of a sociologist, ethnic violence and committing suicide.
