The Isneg (Apayao, Isnag, Isned, Kalina', Mandaya, Payao) are a group in northern Luzon, the Philippines. In 1981 their population was estimated at 12,000. The Isneg are slash-and-burn cultivators of hillside rice; they also grow yams, taro, sweet potatoes, maize, sugarcane, and bananas. Their small hamlets average about eighty-five people each.
