History and Government

 

According to legend, the people from Hingyon, like other Ifugaos, are descendants of the first man and woman of the world, Wigan and Bugan. Then through the generations, there emerged 3 distinct tribes. These tribes are the “Munkalyon” (Anao, Bitu, Bangtinon, Piwong), the “Mun-alyon” (Mompolia, Poblacion, O-ong, Cababuyan North, Cababuyan South), and the “Mun-nganu” (Umalbong, Ubuag, Namulditan). The distinction of each tribe can be reflected on the tribe's diction and pronunciation of the dialect.

 

Hingyon derived its name from the Ifugao word “hingi-yon”, meaning to detour, to divert, or to part away from the main path or way. True enough, the road going to Hingyon is diverted from the main national road.

 

The municipality of Hingyon was born out of the municipalities of Banaue and Lagawe. It was formally created by Batas Pambansa Bilang 239, on April 15, 1983. It consisted of 11 barangays which were formerly parts of the municipalities of Banaue and Lagawe.
