Abstract: This ethnography research focuses on the connection between the indigenous knowledge of Manuvu Erumanen of Cotabato Province, particularly in their crafts into the concepts of classical mechanics, a branch of Physical science. Through in-depth investigation, the author found out that these Indigenous Peoples(IP) lived mostly at Central Mindanao descendants of Mamanwa's (Dillo, 2021), as the first Filipino landed in the Philippines, vibrates their indigenous heritages particularly the bamboo weaving crafts and found out that there is a strong connection between the concepts of classical mechanics, particularly in volume and Newton?s law of mechanics to their indigenous knowledge, system and traditions without formal training in physics education.
