The Romblomanon people are the indigenous inhabitants of Romblon province. They are part of the Visayan metaethnicity.

Area

Romblomanons live mainly in the province of Romblon. However, due to population increase, which the island province's small area couldn't sustain, there are also significant numbers of Romblomanons in Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Masbate, Aklan, Palawan, Capiz, and possible parts of Luzon and Mindanao.

Demographics

Romblomanons number about 24,856, and are considered as Visayans. Romblomanons speak one of three languages, the Romblomanon language, Asi language, and the Onhan language. Most are Roman Catholics. Due to its distance from Capiz and Aklan, most Romblomanons can speak Hiligaynon.
