In terms of language BUKIDNON is rich in spoken language like native language (Tigwaonon, Talaandig, Higwaonon, Manobo, etc) and Visayan language (Ilongo or Hiligaynon, cebuan, and Boholanos).

One of our ever wonderful composed song lyric:

BUKIDNON MY HOME

Wherever I may roam
the distant land to see
I long to go back soon
to sweet Bukidnon home.

Her lovely mountains high
her forest old and grand
bring memories to me
the home I long to see.

There my heart, yearns to be
in far away, Bukidnon land
under its blue and starry skies
where love and joy never die.

Is it nice lyrics?Right?

What Is Really Bukidnon Is?

When you think of Bukidnon, what springs to mind? We all have our own ideas. The word "bukid' is a visayan word means mountain. So it follows that the word bukidnon means full of mountains, mountainous, or highlands? Bukidnon is a province in the heart of Mindanao and is often called the highland paradise. The province of Bukidnon, of course, is more than just mountains. It is famous for the Kaamulan festival, the cattle and farming industry, being home to Del Monte’s pineapple plantation, and the second home of sugar centrals. So if ever I travel in some other places in the world and live there for period of time, I still want to move back home to Bukidnon. Just read the lyrics of the song above. It says it all. It’s really a beautiful song.

We used to sing the song in our primary class and even in secondary class every morning before starting our lessons. It was almost like the provincial anthem (next to Lupang Hinirang(Land of the Morning) which is our national anthem). When I come to think about it now, we were perhaps indoctrinated into a sense of belonging and taking pride of our origin by our educators who inculcate it in our every mind. Until this time the school children in Bukidnon still sing these song. Do other state in Mindanao or in other places in the whole world who have their own song? I do not know - but it should be interesting to find out.
