The sarimanok is a mythical rooster found in many stories among the tribes of the island of Mindanao. It too is commonly depicted in the arts and crafts of the region.
This rainbow plumed bird has a multitude of stories about it that there is no one true story. In one case, it is the messenger of the gods, sent to punish a haughty princes who was turned into a fish. In another tale, a great warrior turns himself into the sarimanok, and flies off to save his bride. And in a story, the sarimanok was either king of the birds or just lord of all fowl.
