Introduction / History

The Palawanos have been on Palawan since long before the Spanish or Moros came to the archipelago. They even have stories of the Sri Vijayan pirates of the 1,400's.


Where are they Located?

Southern Palawan island, Philippines


What are Their Lives Like?

They are poor, subsistence farmers of upland rice. Most areas do not have government schools. They face encroachment by settlers, loggers and mining companies.

Animist. But a number have become evangelical Christians in the last 35 years.


Prayer Points
