History and Government

Sadanga got its name from the English word “sad” and its local meaning, “sanga”. An American visitor combined the words to form “Sad-sanga”. The municipality is still called Sad-sanga by the locals but it is officially spelled Sadanga.

The municipality had its first seat of government at Sacasacan with Bekigan, Belwang and Saclit as its barrios.

Sadanga, now barangays Poblacion and Demang, was a sitio of Barangay Sacasacan which later became a regular barangay and was renamed Poblacion. However, the municipality retained the name Sadanga.

Pursuant to Resolution No. 592 dated October 14, 1949 of the Provincial Board of the old Mountain Province, barangays Anabel and Betwagan were added to the municipality. Barangay Demang was created by virtue of Provincial Ordinance No. 2 dated July 3, 1985.

On June 25, 1963, President Diosdado Macapagal issued Executive Order No. 42 which made Sadanga into a regular municipality.

Today, there are eight barangays that constitute the municipality of Sadanga, namely: Anabel, Bekigan, Belwag, Betwagan, Demang, Poblacion, Sacasacan and Saclit.
