Hanunó'o is a Philippine language spoken in Mindoro in the Philippines, mainly in Mindoro Oriental Province and Mindoro Occidental Province. In the year 2000 there were about 13,000 Hanunó'o speakers.
The Hanunó'o script is one of a number of closely related scripts used in the Philippines until the 17th Century. It is thought to have descended from the Kawi script of Java, Bali and Sumatra, which in turn descended from the Pallava script, one of the southern Indian scripts derived from Brahmi.
Hanunó'o is used mainly to write love songs or ʼambāhan, and also for correspondence. About 70% of the Hanunó'o are able to read and write their language, and there is at least one person in each family who is literate.
