Culture

Category

The Boholano culture is much like the


culture of the Philippines (specifically of the
Visayas). It is based on the majority
population of Austronesian peoples on the
island. There are influences from indigenous
Melanesian people such as the Eskaya tribe,
and from the colonizing Spanish and trade
with Mexico. There is also influence in the
culture from China and other Asian
countries.

Religion

Cebuano, Tagalog and English are also


spoken and understood. Over 90% of the
population are Christian and over 80%
are Roman Catholic. The religous practices
are heavily influenced by more than 300
years of Spanish colonization. Other
religions in Bohol are Protestants, Iglesia ni
Kristo, Mormons, Islam and others.May 19,

The culture of Malaysia draws on the


varied cultures of the different people
of Malaysia. The first people to live in the
area were indigenous tribes that still remain;
they were followed by the Malays, who
moved there from mainland Asia in ancient
times. Chinese and Indian cultural influences
made their mark when trade began with
those countries, and increased with
immigration to Malaysia. Other cultures that
heavily influenced that of Malaysia
include Persian, Arabic, and British. The
many different ethnicities that currently exist
in Malaysia have their own unique and
distinctive cultural identities, with some
crossover.
Malaysia is a multicultural
and multiconfessional country. As of the
2010 Population and Housing Census, 61.3
percent of the population practices Islam;
19.8 percent Buddhism; 9.2
percent Christianity; 6.3 percent Hinduism;
and 1.3 percent traditional Chinese religions.
The remainder is accounted for by other
faiths, including Animism, Folk
religion, Sikhism and other belief systems.

Numbers of self-described atheists
in Malaysia are few; the state has come
under criticism from human
rightsorganisations for its discrimination
against atheists.[2]
The indigenous languages of
Malaysia belong to the MonKhmer and Malayo-Polynesian families. The
national, or official, language
is Malay which is the mother tongue of the
majority Malay ethnic group. The main
ethnic groups within Malaysia comprise
the Malays, Chinese and Indians, with many
other ethnic groups represented in smaller
numbers, each with its own languages. The
largest native languages spoken in East
Malaysia are the Iban, Dusunic, and
the Kadazan languages. Englishis widely
understood in service industries and is a
compulsory subject in primary and
secondary school.

Boholano is a dialect of Cebuano that is


spoken on the island of Bohol in
the Philippines, which is a Visayan speech
variety, although it is sometimes described
as a separate language by some linguists and
native speakers. Boholano, especially the
dialects used in Central Bohol, can be
distinguished from other Cebuano dialects
by a few phonetic changes. The "y" sound
in Cebuano becomes "j" ("iya" in Cebuano
becomes "ija"), the "k" sound sometimes
becomes "h" ("ako" in Cebuano becomes
"aho"), the "l" sound sometimes if it is used
in the second or following syllable becomes
"w" ("kulang" in Cebuano becomes
"kuwang"). The dialects used in the coastal
areas of Bohol though, including Tagbilaran
City, are almost indistinguishable from
other Cebuano-speaking areas.
Bohol island is located right in the heart of
Central Visayas (Region VII), Philippines. It
is the 10th largest island in the country
having a land area of 4117.3 square
kilometers. The mainland shaped an oval
and is surrounded by 72 smaller islands. The
largest and most likely the well-known of
them is the Panglao island in south-west
where world-class Bohol beaches and resorts
resided.
The Philippines is a democratic republic
with an executive, legislative and judicial
branch. The elected president serves as both
