Brief History 

Animist dwellers started populating Mindanao Philippines 67,000 years ago. The Negritos followed after 30,000 years, and the Austronesians in 4000 BC.

They became the indigenous people called ‘Lumads’. In the 13th century, many Lumads were Islamized. Sultanates were formed and Maguidanao was the largest from which Mindanao’s name was derived.

In the 16th century, the Spaniards Christianized many Lumads and Muslims. 

Today, Visayans dominate Mindanao’s population. 

Political Divisions

Mindanao Philippines is composed of 6 administrative regions, 26 provinces, and 27 cities.

Getting There

Mindanao can be reached by plane or boat from Manila and the Visayas.

Get around by plane, bus, mini-bus, van, taxi, jeepney, tricycle, motorcab, pedicab or ‘habal-habal’.
