The Cebuano inhabit the islands of Cebu, Siquijor, and Bohol, as well as eastern Negros, western Leyte, southern Masbate, and northern Mindanao. Most Cebuano subsist through farming or fishing. The typical Cebuano village consists of bamboo and wooden dwellings of two or three rooms, built on pilings and thatched with palm. Cebuanos are famous for their guitars, baskets, hats, and mats of all types. They are proud of their being artistic and creative; various forms of art (painting, sculpting, and drawing), singing, dancing, and writing are cornerstones of Cebuano culture. The majority of Cebuanos are Roman Catholic, with many in rural areas synchronizing Catholicism with indigenous Anitism, maintaining beliefs and rituals around saints as avatars for older diwata. A minority of Cebuanos (specifically those in Mindanao ) are Muslim , or in mixed Chinese-Cebuano families, incorporate Catholic beliefs with aspects of Buddhism or Taoism . Cebuanos primarily speak Cebuano but are also able to converse well in English and Tagalog. Cebuano, as a language, is part of the Visayan languages as one of its subfamilies and as one of the most spoken in the Visayan region. It is considered the most prominent language spoken in Cebu, Bohol, Negros Oriental and Occidental, Samar and Masbate.
