Magahat

The Magahats are also known as the Ati-Man and Bukidnon. There are concentrations of Magahats found in southwestern Negros, Santa Catalina, Bayawan, and Siaton in Negros Oriental; and in Negros Occidental. Their language is a mixture of Hiligaynon and Sugbuhanon.

Magahats practice swidden agriculture, because their settlements are in mountainous areas. They are food gatherers and good hunters as well.
