I am always pleased every time I come across a minority language website from the various Muslim Filipino tribes. The grassroots efforts to make a name on the worldwide web for languages like: Tausug, Maguindanaon, Yakan, Kaagan and of course my beloved Sinama is hard work with little reward. The significance of such sites and the knowledge contained within can never be appropriately ranked by the search engines and web directories because though they serve a sliver of the internet community, they are doing it with the insights of insiders on their own culture. They are developing their languages. They are promoting their cultures. They are forming communities on the internet. May God grant you success at your task.Tausug Online Now the longest lasting Tausug community website. They have over 1,000 members. They provide forums, blogs, and media for their members. You can find content in English and Tausug. They have gained a pagerank of 2 from Google. Royal Panji A historical website that focuses on the flags and symbols of Sulu. It is an English website with great pictures and historical information relevant to the Tausug and others that are members of the Sulu Sultanate of old. The sites longevity and content has earned itself a pagerank of 2 from Google.
Significant Tausug Websites and Sulu Community Websites:Sulu Forum Sulu Forum has been around for quite some time now.

Tausug 101 A project of the Anak Iluh foundation that is teaching people the Tausug language. Being a linguistic blog ourself, we are quite proud of this website and hope that it will be useful to many Tausug wishing to return to their roots, as well as outsiders who appreciate the Tausug culture.
