The province of Aklan in the northern part of Panay Island (Western Visayas Region) is home to the Aklanons. They speak Akeanon and Ibayjanon, languages that are mutually intelligible with Hiligaynon.

The Aklanons comprise the majority in Aklan and share the province with the Ati, Karay-a, Hiligaynon, and Capiznon. Most of the Aklanons are Roman Catholics, for whom Christian festivals such as Lent and Christmas are of great importance. They regard the Santo NiƱo (Holy Child Jesus), a Catholic icon, as a very important cultural symbol.
