Ministering to the Palawano since 1995
The Palawano are a tribal group inhabiting the mountains in the south of Palawan. They are cultivators, forest-foragers, and hunters who somewhat resemble Malaysians. The Palawano language varies from region to region but seems to have similarities to Malay. Palawanos live in huts that they make from materials found in the jungle surrounding them. They live in family groups instead of typical villages and tend to live with the wife’s family group rather than the husband’s. These animistic people are controlled by their fear of the spirits and the children are taught to fear them from their youngest days. Mainly an illiterate, but bright people, their youngsters have a yearning to learn. The adults, on the other hand, have a fear of change and cling tenaciously to the ways of their forefathers.
