A native Tagbanua spearfishing on Coron Island
The Tagbanua people are descendents of some of the oldest people in the Philippines likely coming from Borneo and historically had strong relations with Brunei. Today there are various subgroups of the Tagbanua throughout the province of Palawan. The Calamian Tagbanua have adopted a sea oriented way of life, living off of the ocean and its resources.
