Chinese tourists pose with an Ati child in Boracay. The Ati community here gets a number of visitors, mostly asian tourists looking to have their photos taken together with the Ati children. There is also a small on-site heritage house where visitors can learn about the Ati people. The whole of Boracay island was once originally home to the Ati people even long before the Spanish arrived centuries ago. After the tourism boom started in the 1970ís the Atis have been slowly pushed aside and today only occupy 2.1 hectares of the islands total 1,032 hectares. (Boracay Island, Aklan, Philippines)
