Piracy in the Sulu Sea

Moro piratesSulu piratesMuslim pirates
In the 18th and 19th centuries, they were commonly used for piracy by the Banguingui and Iranun people against unarmed trading ships and raids on coastal settlements in the regions surrounding the Sulu Sea.
The pirate ships used by the Moros include various designs like the paraw, pangayaw, garay, and lanong.

Banguingui people

Banguingui
Garay were traditional native warships of the Banguingui people in the Philippines.
The Banguingui usually sailed garay warships, in contrast to the lanong of the Iranun.

Lanong

Garay were smaller, faster, and more maneuverable than the Iranun lanong warships.
Like the garay and penjajap, lanong usually served as motherships to smaller salisipan war-canoes.

Large garay can serve as motherships to smaller salisipan (a covered banca, shielded against arrows and spears), which could carry an additional 15 people.
They are usually part of fleets with larger motherships like pangajava, garay, or lanong warships.

Penjajap

These terms, however, referred specifically to penjajap (mangaio in Iranun), very long and narrow warships used mostly in Nusantara.
The terms are similarly inaccurately applied to the garay, fast raiding vessels of the Banguingui and Iranun people in the Philippines.
