Additional Information: Notes p. 364: "The "Mamanua" of Surigao peninsula, Mindanao, have long been recognized as of Negrito race. They were seen and described by Montano in I880. At the present time they are very few in number, and are found in the forest about Lake Mainit and hill country southward. They are fast being absorbed by Manobo, who join their communities and intermarry with them. In a little village called Kicharao in the forest near Lake Mainit are Mamanua men married to Manobo women and Manobo men married to Mamanua women, the children of these unions sometimes presenting Negroid and sometimes Malayan characters. The opportunity to observe the immediate results of mixture between two different races is very unusual. Naturally this group mixed race, some individuals looking like pure Negritos and from this type varying all the way to primitive Malayan."
