The Bukidnon people of the southern Philippines speak the Binukid dialect within the Manobo Language Family. “Bukidnon” is a Bisayan word for “people of the mountains,” first used by Bisayan-speaking settlers of Mindanao’s north coast, on whom its negative connotation for non-Hispanicized (i.e., “non-civilized”) mountain people was not lost.
