Ira means residue remaining on silt, referring to a place, area or the culture.

 

Nun means the people therein, with distinct culture, laws and beliefs.

 

They are known to be experts in using the kampilan or swords and in sea-faring.

 

At present, they are scattered in the different parts of Davao City.
