Palawano, Central

Palawano, Central

Not only is Palawan Island considered one of the most captivating tourist attractions in the Philippines, but it is rich in languages and culture as well. Palawan is one of the best-known archaeological sites that carry solid evidence of the country’s ancient past.

Most Palawanos choose to live along upland rivers, while a few opt for the coast. Their primary source of food is agriculture, using the slash-and-burn method. Hunting with blowguns, fishing, and food gathering are also relied on for sustenance. In traditional societies, most of the agricultural tasks are assigned to the women.

The Central Palawanos stay in the southern part of the island, near the towns of Quezon, Rizal, and Abu-Abu. The tribe is also known as Quezon Palawano.
