3 min read

Maguindanao is a member of the Greater Central Philippine branch of the Philippine language family. It is spoken by 1.1 million people, mainly in Maguindanao province in the south of Mindanao island in the Philippines, and also in the provinces of North Cotabato, South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani, Zamboanga del Sur, Zamboanga Sibugay and Metro Manila.The Maguindanao people are an Austronesian ethnic group from the Philippines. The Maguindanaon are part of wider political identity of Muslims known as Moro, who constitute the third largest ethnic group of Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan. The Maguindanaons constitute the ninth largest Filipino ethnic group and are known for being distinguished in the realm of visual art. They have been renowned as metalworkers, producing the wavy-bladed keris ceremonial swords and other weapons, as well as gongs. The Maguindanaons historically had an independent sultanate known as the Sultanate of Maguindanao which comprises modern day Maguindanao del Norte, Maguindanao del Sur, Zamboanga Peninsula, Davao Region and Soccsksargen. Maguindanao, ethnolinguistic group living primarily in south-central Mindanao, the largest island in the southern Philippines. With a name meaning “people of the flood plain,” the Maguindanao are most heavily concentrated along the shores and in the flood lands of the Pulangi-Mindanao River basin, although many now live in the surrounding areas. They speak an Austronesian language, written in Latin script, that is related to the languages of the Central Philippines. In the second decade of the 21st century, the Maguindanao numbered nearly 1.4 million, making them the largest of the Philippine Muslim groups collectively identified as Moro.Although Islam was likely introduced to Mindanao in the 14th or early 15th century, the religion was not solidly established among the Maguindanao until about 1515, when Sharif Muhammad Kabungsuwan, a Muslim missionary from the sultanate Johor (on the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula) converted the ruling Maguindanao families. Shortly thereafter, the sultanate of Maguindanao was founded, with its seat in the city of Cotabato, at the mouth of the Mindanao River. The sultanate expanded throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, reaching its summit of strength and influence under Sultan Kudarat (reigned c. 1619–71). About the time of Sultan Kudarat’s death, Buayan, a rival upriver sultanate, began to gain strength, and by the late 18th century, it had replaced Maguindanao as the dominant sultanate of southern Mindanao. From a social, spiritual, and historical perspective, Maguindanao and Buayan remained among the most prominent sultanates of the southern Philippines in the 21st century. None of the sultanates, however, retained much political power. important to improve maguindanaon language to gives maguidanaon self confidence and be a socialize to the others.
