Abstract: This research focuses on the evolution of Palawan society during the period between 5000-1000 BP. The emphasis will be development and testing of a hypothesis to account for the different strategies utilized to cope with specific types of environmental limitations encountered in Palawan, particularly the development of interdependence between groups occupying various ecological niches through the development of a network of exchange relationships. A specific hypothesis to be tested is that an important type of material culture, earthenware pottery, was made locally rather than imported from outside the island. The result of the petrographic analysis conducted on the ceramics from Ille and Marang Buwaya sites showed that both ceramic groups were made from locally available raw material. Other than foodstuff, local ceramics and shell ornaments, the imported items were also exchanged and circulated around the island. The interaction that ensued from the exchanges coupled with other social contacts i.e. building alliances or ritual gatherings, became an important avenue for the transmission and sharing of various cultural elements.
