Kasiguranin

Casiguran in Aurora Province is home to the Kasiguranin. Their language is 82% mutually intelligible with Paranan, a language in eastern Isabela, probably because Aurora and Isabela lie in close proximity.

The Kasiguranin rely mainly on fishing and farming, as do other groups in Casiguran.
