One of southern Mindanao’s indigenous people, the T’boli are concentrated in Kiamba, Maitum, and Surallah in South Cotabato. As settlers from other Philippine islands arrived, the T’boli gradually withdrew to the mountain slopes and lived in scattered villages. Their cultural heartland lies in the highland lake complex: Sebu, Selutan, and Lahit Lakes. T’boli, B’laan, and Tiruray belong to a single language group and are distinct from the other languages of Mindanao. T’boli are famous for their T’nalak. A textile made by the dream weavers T’boli women.
