How you can help

Expand our library collection by looking for photographs, books, and articles about the Mangyan that may be hidden in libraries around the world. Just visit a nearby library and search for: Mindoro, indigenous peoples, tribal Filipinos, non-Christian tribes, minorities, Mangyan, Alangan, Bangon, Buhid, Hanunuo, Iraya, Ratagnon, Tadayawan, Tau-buhid. If any of these words appear, please contact us with the bibliographical details of the resources you have found.

Think Mangyan when browsing through books, photos, postcards, maps, etc. in antique stores and dusty attics! Other sources would be theses and papers submitted to educational institutions.
