More information on history below:

Throughout the year, the elders of the Manobo tribe are looking for the star-lit sky to determine the season of planting, harvesting, fishing and hunting. Each star can bring a different message and will guide the tribal group in their traditional way of living. This practice is called Pamiteun, the Manobos' indigenous way of understanding the stars. Nowadays only the members of the older generation of farmers will continue to use the Pamiteun but they are passing the knowledge to the present generation, to learn the old way of living, keep their culture and traditions alive and deepen their consciousness about their own culture

The Manobo are both strong in mind and spirit, their cultural identity is firmly rooted in the land and its nature. It is maintained through storytelling, language, family and the passing on of traditional skills and arts. The traditional way of life has not ended for most Manobos, like any other tribal community in Mindanao, the Manobo have faced many cultural challenges in their past and will encounter even more in the future. They strive to uphold their values and traditions even while living in a modern society, faced with new realities, ready to compete in the modern economic world instead of the world of nature.
