Most of their economic activities were fishing, farming, and hunting by the use of bamboo traps and blowguns.Because of Palawan's proximity to Borneo, southern portions of the island were under the control of the Sultanate of Brunei for more than two centuries, and Islam was introduced.During the same period, trade relations flourished, and intermarriages among the natives and the Chinese, Japanese, Arab and Hindu.Surviving ancient tribal artwork include reliefs of elephants, sharks, and fish found at Tabon Caves.Approximately 5,000 years ago, a culturally distinct period characterised by jar burials is evident.
