Photography, Jojie Alcantara

(Wikipedia) LUMAD is a term for a group of indigenous peoples of the southern Philippines. It is a Cebuano term meaning "native" or "indigenous", or a collective identity of the non-Islamized indigenous peoples of Mindanao.

There are 18 Lumad ethnolinguistic groups namely, Ata, Bagobo, Banwaon, B'laan, Bukidnon, Dibabawon, Higaonon, Mamanwa, Mandaya, Manguwangan, Manobo, Mansaka, Subanon, Tagakaolo, Tasaday, Tboli, Teduray, and Ubo.

According to the Lumad Development Center Inc., there are about 18 Lumad groups in 19 provinces across the country. They comprise 12 to 13 million or 18% of the Philippine population and can be divided into 110 ethno-linguistic groups. Considered as "vulnerable groups", they live in hinterlands, forests, lowlands and coastal areas.
