Tausug in Philippines
The name “Tausug” means “people of the sea current,” and most Tausug reside on the island of Jojo. While Islam is the main religion, it is mixed with pre-Islamic religious beliefs and rituals, such as beliefs that environmental spirits cause sickness or wealth and that all Tausug eventually reach heaven after a period of punishment based on misconduct on earth. Historically, the Tausug engaged in armed struggles against the central government during the Marcos regime, which left deep hurts and bitterness.
