 Visayan languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Visayan language with the most number of speakers is Cebuano, spoken by 18 million people as a native language in Central Visayas, northern and eastern parts of Mindanao.
Native speakers of Visayan languages, especially Cebuano, Hiligaynon, and Waray-Waray not only refer to their language by their local name, but also by Bisaya or Binisaya, meaning Visayan language.
However, languages that are classified within the Visayan language family but spoken natively in places outside of the Visayas do not use the self-reference Bisaya or Binisaya.

 The Manila Times Internet Edition | SPECIAL REPORT > Human traffic cases alarming
But the Visayan Forum says human trafficking is difficult to document, because “it happens unnoticed every day and anywhere.” Their forum’s statistics are based only on the number of the persons rescued, including those who have escaped from their illegal-recruitment agencies.
The Visayan Forum said the victims were deceived and maltreated, and their recruitment agencies pimped them in brothels or sent them to sweatshops.
As the Visayan Forum and its network government agencies continue to fight human trafficking, more and more victims are being intercepted, rescued or have escaped from their employers, like Minnie and Joy.

 VISAYANS IN HAWAII
The Awards event was an eye-opener and it quickly became a source of pride among Filipinos of Visayan ancestry, who, until then, were relatively unaware of what their fellow Visayans have achieved since they first arrived in Hawaii in the early 1900s.
COVO's objectives are: to organize and unify the several Visayan organizations in Hawaii, to perpetuate the Visayan language and cultural traditions, and to assist in the educational, social, and economic advancement of Visayans in the larger Hawaii community.
The response was that, as long as there are Visayans in Hawaii, and as long as they remain proud of their language, culture and roots, COVO will continue to play a significant role in the community.

The range of the Philippine spotted deer is essentially the same as that of the endangered Visayan warty pig, which is subjected to the same threats.

 The Early History of Chavacano de Zamboanga
The Visayans were all too familiar with the numerous and incessant atrocities the Moro Pirates inflicted upon their people during the past century, and were not about to let this opportunity to deliver vengeance fail them.
Since the Visayan language is the predominantly spoken language in the Philippines today (over fifteen million), it is our conclusion that the VC was absorbed very early on into the native Bisaya before or after the Spanish influence waned.
The Visayans who spoke VC would logically try their best to help the other Visayan warriors, who did not speak it, understand the Spanish language, if the Jesuits were not around to help.
