History of Cagayan de Oro City, Province of Misamis Oriental, Philippines

The City's history dates back many centuries before the Spaniards came to Cagayan when the territory was called Kalambagohan. Its main town, Himologan, was a hill-top fortress situated some eight kilometers south of the present Poblacion.

At the time when the first Spanish missionaries came in 1622, the people of Cagayan had tributary relation to Kudarat, the Muslim Sultan of Maguindanao empire in Cotabato. However, the people had not embraced Islam and instead, many became Christians after sometime. Because of this, Muslim warriors began to attack the settlement. As a defense strategy, the priests persuaded the people to transfer from the hilltop to a better location which is the present site of the Saint Augustine Cathedral. The Cagayanons were able to defend themselves for almost 250 years from Muslim harassment.

In 1738, Spanish dominance was felt in Cagayan. When Misamis gained status of province in 1818, one of its four districts was the Partidos de Cagayan.

In 1871, the "Partidos" became a town and was made permanent capital of Misamis. In 1883, the town became seat of the Spanish government in Mindanao for the provinces of Misamis Oriental, Misamis Occidental, Bukidnon, Lanao del Norte. Consequently, from a purely farming-fishing area, Cagayan emerged into a booming commerce and trade center.

The war years in Cagayan were prompted by the presence of the Americans in 1898. The Americans were initially and successfully repulsed by the local forces led by Major Apolinar Velez at the historic battle of Macahambus in June 4, 1900.

After the troubled years, peace finally brought back the economic activities to normal under the guidance of Americans. St. Augustine School, the forerunner of the present Xavier University and of Lourdes College, was inaugurated in 1928.

On June 15, 1950 President Elpidio Quirino signed Republic Act No. 521, which granted the status of a chartered city to the municipality of Cagayan de Oro.

Following these events, the socio-economic order underwent some far-reaching changes. Activities grew in scale and importance until it developed as the administrative center for the entire Northern Mindanao (Region X and XIII).

Today, Cagayan de Oro is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and was declared a “Highly Urbanized City” by the Ministry of Local Government last November 22, 1983.

Natural Resources of Cagayan de Oro City, Province of Misamis Oriental, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!


Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More


We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

Military flags down farmers for 'safety precaution'

By Jigger J. Jerusalem

ABOUT 700 farmers from the eastern part of Misamis Oriental on board six dumptrucks did not arrive on time to attend the National Peasant Day held at Kiosko sa Kagawasan (Freedom Kiosk) in Divisoria on Tuesday because they were allegedly flagged down by the military in Medina town, Misamis Oriental.

Farmer Eduardo Quidet said their convoy of dumptrucks, owned by the Provincial Government, was stopped by the army's 58th Infantry Battalion (58IB) checkpoint in Barangay Maanas, Medina around 8 a.m.

Quidet said after more than an hour of being held up, they were finally released. They arrived at Divisoria around 11:30 a.m.

Quidet is the field coordinator for eastern Misamis Oriental area of the Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas-Northern Mindanao Region (KMP-NMR).

“Ila ‘ming gi-hold kay wala kuno sila kasabot aha paingon ang mga tawo. Among giignan nga moapil sa usa ka kalihukan sa mga mag-uuma (They held us because they did not understand where the people were going. We told them we were joining a gathering for farmers),” he said.

Quidet asked the soldiers why they were apprehensive considering the trucks used belonged to the Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental and had the permission of Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano.

They were held by the soldiers for more than an hour, and a copy of the group’s permit had been demanded from them.

But the group didn’t have a copy of the permit since the KMP-NMR regional office has it.

He said it was the first time they were stopped by the military since they have been attending the yearly farmers’ activity for 10 years.

They were only allowed to proceed when Quidet blurted out “sige, molarga ‘mi. Pusila ‘mi kay mopadayon ‘mi (we are going ahead. Shoot us, but we will push through).”

Richard Colao, KMP-NMR secretary-general, said they had secured a permit from the office of Mayor Oscar Moreno to hold the rally and they were even escorted by Roads and Traffic Administration enforcers during their march from the Provincial Capitol to the Kiosko to ensure the activity proceeded smoothly.

Colao said they also asked the Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (Cocpo) to secure the site of the protest rally.

Random checkpoints

In a separate interview Tuesday, Major Christian Uy, spokesman of the Philippine Army’s 4th Infantry Division (4ID), confirmed that the 58IB is conducting random checkpoints from time to time in the area.

“Timing nag-conduct sila og checkpoint. Dili lang kay karon lang na sila nag-checkpoint,” Uy said.

He said the soldiers did it for safety precaution, “Igo lang sila gi-check, then they (farmers) were allowed to proceed.”

One of those who attended the rally, Resim Baculi, of the Upper Puerto Fight Carp Beneficiaries Association (UPFCBA) in Barangay Puerto, is optimistic when they got an assurance from the Registry of Deeds on Monday that their Certificate of Land Ownership Award (Cloa) of the 23-hectare land will soon be released.

“We hope that this will finally be realized,” Baculi said, adding their application for the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (Carp) for the contested lot forms part of the 23-hectare lot in Upper Puerto is owned by a private company.

He said they are hopeful the ROD will keep its word of giving them the Cloa next week.

Sr. Fam Somogod, of the Rural Missionaries of the Philippines (RMP), said the support they have extended to the peasants in the region has been ongoing.

Among the assistance the tillers have received from the RMP are farm implements, as well as processing of documents for their application for Carp.
