The Kapampangans, Capampangans, Pampangueños, or Pampangos, refer to the people who inhabit the Capampangan Region comprising of the entire province of Pampanga; Tarlac City and the towns of Bamban, Capas, Concepcion, La Paz, and Victoria in Tarlac; San Miguel in Bulacan; Cabiao in Nueva Ecija; and the towns of Dinalupihan and Hermosa and two linguistic island barrios, Mabatang and Kalagiman, in Bataan.

The name Pampanga comes from the word pangpang meaning riverbank, a fitting name for a flat country crisscrossed by a hundred small branches of the Pampanga River. Capampangans share the general culture and traditions of the lowland Christian Filipinos, especially of their Tagalog neighbors. However, they speak a distinct language, the Capampangan or Pampango, and takes pride in their Capampangan Cuisine.
