The Tadyawan live on the eastern and northeastern edges of Mindoro, and are part of the island's more general Mangyan culture. They live in settlements of five to twelve single-family houses, which are situated on slopes near mountain streams and named after the oldest resident. They do not use the island's Indic script.
