Abstract: It is a great honor to be asked to write the Foreword to the latest in the long series of books and articles that Hazel Wrigglesworth has published over the last forty years, providing the world with a lasting record of the oral traditions of the Ilianen Menuvù, one of the dozen or so Manobo ethnolinguistic groups whose languages are still spoken in Mindanao, the Philippines [ISO 639- 3: mbi]. These works, along with a number of others containing stories told by local raconteurs from other Manobo languages and translated by members of SIL, Philippines after decades of residence among these groups, provide a body of oral literature possibly unsurpassed among the other so-called “minor” languages of the Philippines.
