Abstract: The study worked toward a better understanding of the culture of the selected geographically isolated and disadvantaged area population in Kabankalan City by using indigenous health practices with a particular interest in their knowledge about the subject, the different methods they use, and their reasons for predilection towards indigenous health practices. Fifteen residents from Barangay Locotan, Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental were selected using the non-probabilistic sampling approach, specifically purposive sampling, with complementary strategies of opportunistic sampling. The researchers used rapid focused ethnography in consideration of the present pandemic to limit several interactions, follow protocols, and maintain overall safety among the researchers and participants. In addition, rapid ethnography is employed given the constrained course timeline, limited engagements, and difficulty of travel. Selected, specified, and focused on aspects of a field, multiple data collection techniques are applied to reinforce the conclusions obtained. These techniques included semi-structured, in-depth, and open-ended nature interviews, the observer-as-participant approach, and videography to thoroughly capture essential details. Participants exhibited a common frustration over the modern healthcare system. The participants claimed that indigenous health practices work if not the same but, in actuality, even better than what modernity offers. The participants' responses in the selected area of Locotan possess the common denominator that the primary source of healing and treatment, particularly in what the participants claim as non-emergent cases like cough, flu-like illnesses, and body pains, is indigenous health practice.
