Mamerto Tindongan holds his spirituality as a foundation for every aspect of his life. He learned his practices and traditions while growing up in a remote area of the Philippines as part of the Ifugao tribe. Whether he is woodcarving, teaching Tai Chi or throwing spears, he views these things as his passions that fulfill his purpose in life.
