They are believed to be the offsprings of the Remontado and Agta marriages. Like other Agta tribes, they genetically inherited the curly hair and dark skin of their ancestors, although they are taller compared with the other Agtas, since height is attributable to the Remontado physical built. Their culture is closely similar with that of the Agtas. They are multilingual speakers and can speak their Tabangnon language, Bicolano, and Tagalog.
Nomadic by nature,they come to know the ways of life of the lowlanders. However, they are reported to raid the Christian Filipino settlements in order to obtain cattle and food. Through time, they become acculturated and adapted some practices of the Christians without totally losing their own identity. Some of their traditional beliefs and rituals are still practiced.
