THE MANGYANS

The first inhabitants of Mindoro. They belong to the Malay race. Like most natives in the Philippines, these people are short with snub noses and brown complexion.

Among the seven clans - Alangan, Buhid, Iraya, Hanunuo, Tadyaoan, Ratagnon and Batangan occupying the land, Batangan and the Alangans inhabit Sablayan, a town in the mid-western portion of the island.

Their population posted around 4.40% of the town`s total in 1990; counting around 2,033 at an average household size of 6. Housing pattern is nucleated and each nucleus represents a tribe. Homes are made of light materials and are usually small, communal houses, however, which could accommodate about 10 families are common to the more indigent tribes in the north.

Adult males wear G-strings (bahag) as cover while females cover themselves with brassieres (ulango) and rattan nito (yakis) some women simply wear tapis pulled up to their breast. The youth though prefer clothing similar to us.
