The research intended to determine correlation between manifestations of culture and cultural integrity. Manifestations of culture were determined using frequency count. Cultural integrity was determined using Likert scale and statistical mean. Manifestations of culture in terms of knowledge, beliefs, values and norms indicated behaviors and actions mostly signifying IP closeness to and dependence on nature as well as the possession of communalist and animist traits. Cultural integrity in terms of knowledge, beliefs, values and norms were somewhat high. Correlations were found between manifestations of culture and cultural integrity in terms of knowledge, beliefs, values, and norms. The researchers concluded that there were significant relationships between manifestations of culture and cultural integrity in terms of IP knowledge, beliefs, values, and norms. They recommended that the IP and concerned agencies prioritize revitalizing IP knowledge particularly those concerning spiritual and religious rituals and practices. Future researchers on cultural manifestations, cultural integrity and other similar topics were advised to replicate and apply the framework and methodology of research be it on IP or non-IP settings. Moreover, future researchers were advised to include other cultural elements such as artifacts and language as variables of manifestations of culture and cultural integrity.
