Who are the Kagayanens

The KAGAYANENs were the people who traces themselves their ethnic origin from the municipality of Cagayancillo, Palawan, Philippines, the ethnocenter of the Kagayanen people. They could be found as communities almost in every municipalities in the Province of Palawan, Philipines. The population in its ethnocenter, the Cagayancillo, which the people there call it locally "CAGAY-AN" were only 6,000 plus. However, the biggest population of "Kagayanens" was in the municipality of Roxas, Palawan, Philippines of more than 18,000.00 Kagayanens. The next was the the municipality of Narra, of more than 12,000 Kagayanens and the third one was here in Puerto Princesa City almost the same as the number of population in Cagayancillo. Some Kagayanens in the other places here in the province of Palawan. The first printed and published material written in Kagayanen language was launched last Summer of 2008 between March to April, 2008, it's the "Kagayanen Bible". It was the project of the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL)an NGO in Coordination with the Department of Education (DepEd) a Philippines Government agency. Because of this project we were able to read and write the Kagayanen Languges. The Kagayanen NGO, "Tambuli Ta Mga Kagayanen" was born and it broadcast in Kagayanen Language in the AM local Radio here in Palawan every Sunday evening for the promotion, advocacy and empowerment of Kagayanen people, their language, culture, arts, literature, music and environments. The said NGO, "Tambuli" represented by its president, Pastor Jehu P. Cayaon, became member of the Tubbataha Protected Area Management Board (TPAMB) the board commission by the Philippine Government to oversee the conservation and management of Tubbataha Reefs Marine Park, one of the Natural Marine World Heritage site, which was located in the Municipality of Cagayancillo, Palawan. Because of the Kagayanen Bible Project the Kagayanen cultural Band was born, the "Tatos ta mga Kagayanen". The members of the said band wrote and composed original songs in Kagayanen language and in tagalog language. For updates please sign-up to our website:
