Animism, the fear of evil spirits, is the mainspring of tribal religion. Every village will have at least one spirit priest, usually a man. Animal sacrifices are required to appease the offended spirit in times of illness. The Manobo have 24 main dialects. The

others since their dialects are related. They
include the Ata or Langilan Manobo, Talaingod,
Matig-Salug, Tigwa, Dibabawon and
Umayamnon. the lives of Manobos have been catastrophically
altered by the rape of the environment by logging companies. Since the 1960s almost all of the native rain forest has been destroyed. This has rendered the Manobo slash-and-burn agriculture ineffective and no longer viable. Also many Manobo found pleasure in the new way the lowlanders brought, not realizing that the urge for materialism has made them poorer because of their unique lifestyle. Up to 90% of the land that belonged to Manobo has been sold - and is still being sold - to lowlanders. Up to this point in time many Manobo remain subsistence farmers and food gatherers instead of producers but
this lifestyle has become increasingly hard
without a good rain forest. Typical colors are red, black, yellow, green, blue white.
