History and Government

 

It is gleaned from oral traditions that the first inhabitants of Lubuagan were what are now known as Matu-un, Bantay and Pakac. The Uddok and Banutan, both Lubuagan tribal authorities on Kalinga culture were said to have recounted that Mabilong was their nest settlement.

 

Other settlers had recounted that the present site of Lubuagan used to be a swampy place full of mudholes. These mudholes are termed in the vernacular “Lubuangan” from which the entire area was named. However, when Lt. Gov. Walter Hale of the then subprovince of Kalinga established the subprovincial seat of the government at Lubuagan, he was said to have difficulty pronouncing the word “Lubuangan” and “Lubuagan” got stuck in his newly acquired Kalinga vocabulary, the official name which is retained to this day.

 

There are no available historical documents of Lubuagan’s history as a political unit before the Americans came, except for its being mentioned in Dr. Scott’s book, the “History of the Cordillera” that in 1908, Aguinaldo Hernaez led an expedition to Lubuagan to recruit laborers for a road construction between Abra and Cagayan. It is likewise noted in the book that Lubuagan was the seat of the first Philippine Republic for seventy-three days when Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo established his headquarters from March 6, 1900 to May 18,1900 at Lubuagan before continuing with his flight to Palanan, Isabela.

 

From 1901 to 1907, there was no organized local government unit in the area except for the presence of a company of constabulary men under the command of 1st Lt. Alex H. Gilfilan in Lubuagan. This company was not sent out to Lubuagan to organize a local government unit but to handle a hazardous pacification campaign among the so-called untamed aborigines of the hinterland. On March 4, 1907, Walter Hale was ordered by the Central Office in Manila to Kalinga. Arriving at Lubuagan on August 18, 1907, he organized the local government unit which comprised the three administrative settlements, namely: Lubuagan, Pinukpuk and Balbalan. Jose Alunday was appointed the first president of the administrative settlement of Lubuagan, who was succeeded by Pallayoc in later years.

 

On August 18, 1908, Jose Alunday was the president of the administrative settlement and was retained as municipal district president of Lubuagan by virtue of Act No. 1870. William Wailan of Pasil was the first elected municipal district president of Lubuagan administrative settlement after a a closely contested informal election.

 

By virtue of Proclamation No. 2918 of Gov. General Frank Murphy, Tanudan was separated from Lubuagan in May 1932 as a municipal district. On October 9, 1959, Lubuagan as well as the other municipal districts of the undivided Mountain Province, was made a 7th class municipality.

 

By operation of Republic Act No. 4741, Pasil was made a separate municipality out of Lubuagan and Balbalan. In April 1967, Republic Act No. 4695 created the province of Kalinga-Apayao with Tabuk as the provincial capital. Lubuagan therefore ceased to be the sub-provincial capital. Executive Order No. 42, issued on June 5, 1963, converted Lubuagan into a regular municipality.

 

Presently, Lubuagan has nine (9) barangays, namely: Poblacion, Antonio Canao, Dangoy, Mabilong, Abongtot, Tanglag, Lower Uma, Uma del Norte and Upper Uma.

History and Government

 

The original settlement was named Cagaluna. At that time, the tribes were engaged almost constantly in numerous petty tribal wars. Northward was a village named Tinglayan, with whom Cagaluan was engaged in a bitter strife. After a long and fierce struggle, Cagaluan won. Aside from indemnities of various kinds, one of the conditions imposed to maintain peace was the exchange of names. That was how Cagaluan came to be named Tinglayan and vice versa.

 

Tinglayan was organized as a municipal district during the American regime. On June 25, 1963 during the Philippine Republic, Executive Order No. 42 was passed making Tinglayan a regular municipality. The municipality was led by Roberto Chulsi from 1992 to 1998. He was succeeded by Fernando Abay in 1998.

 

There are twenty political subdivisions (barangays) in the municipality, namely: Ambato Legleg, Bangad Centro, Basao, Belong Manubal, Butbut (Butbut-Ngibat), Bugnay, Buscalan (Buscalan-Locong), Dananao, Luplupa, Mallango, Poblacion, Sumadel I, Sumadel II, Tulgao East, Tulgao West, Upper Bangad, Ngibat, Old Tinglayan, Lower Bangad and Locong.
