Kabunian or Lumawig is the supreme deity of the Ifugao tribe.

To some, the god is called Kabunian; to others, it is Lumawig. Their theogony grows when one meets with similar stories, told by different groups, differing only in nomenclature. In one, the hero-god is Kabunian, while in the other it is Lumawig.

His palace is said to be at the peak of Mount Pulag, located in the Northern Cordilleras.
