About the People

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 illiterate but bright people, their youngsters have a yearning to learn. On the other hand, the adults have a fear of change and cling tenaciously to the ways of their forefathers.

Hope Makes the Difference

This hope makes all the goodbyes bearable and all the sacrifice worth it. As we live our lives day by day, let us be intentional in doing all that we can to ensure that goodbyes are temporary rather than forever.

Surprises

It reminds me that I, too, must stay so close to Jesus that truth is discernible and falsehood is made plain. I am also reminded that my people’s protection does not lie in my motherly heart but the heart of Jesus.
