History of Carrascal, Surigao del Sur, Philippines

For the first time in 1879, Carrascal was mentioned in the chronicles of the Spanish Friary in Cantilan. Fr. Antonio H. Van Odkij, a missionary, noted that Carrascal appeared ready to be converted into a barrio or outstation like Panikian. This is 255 years back to the inception in 1624 of the Christianization of Ilihan and Dinayhugan in what is now Carrascal, and of Calagdaan, Palasao, and Bayuyo of the Cantilan side; and 85 years up to the conversion of Panikian as a "visita" of Calagdaan in 1709.

If we consider that Tandag had only 54 "tributantes" and some 200 inhabitants when she become that seat of the priory then administering Christianization of the region to Cantilan, we could visualize how very modest that fishing/farming village of Carrascal could be in 1879.

Viewed from another historical angle, the story of the development of the town of Carrascal dates back to two ancestor habits: Ilihan and Dinayhugan. Pastoral accounts in Cantilan showed evidence of Ilihan and Dinayhugan being confused for or as Panikian.

Situated at the foot of a mountain some seven kilometers to the southwest of the bay of Carrascal, Ilihan and Dinayhugan provided safe haven to their people from Moro marauders of the period like her contemporary habitats nearby in the flatlands to the east and sea, namely Calagdaan, Palasao and Bayuyo, their inhabitants were "Manobos" with sprinkling of other ethnic tribes. These were the heathens the Spanish Monks encountered when they came from halfway around the globe. Fr. Juan de San Antonio, a missionary, who stayed for two years in Calagdaan. Selfless and undaunted, the succession of friars introduced to the heathens a Supreme Being form who loves, cares, helps, protects and forgives - the very virtues the lowlanders never heard of before. Against their ethnic diwatas and gods, or against there each-one-to-himself culture. God's will prevailed.

Parish records in Cantilan were soon full of names of Manobos who embraced Christianity and gradually assimilated rudiments of civilization: living in settlement, farming, participating in socio-religious practices of the time and later on schooling. Round their habitats, their "baganis" took infinite pride and renown for being brave, killing brutes. In time this tribal traditions lapsed to limbo. Note worthy, the entire Cantilan region stood blameless for no friars ever getting harmed; Tandag region recorded three.

It is interesting to note that while the habitats on the Cantilan side were able to progress while Ilihan and Dinayhugan on Carrascal side were gradually falling away from the mainstream of Christianization and development: Several factors are noted:

1.) Ilihan and Dinayhugan never recovered from the exodus of their Christianized population which was enforced by Fray Valero de San Antonio to beef up the new settlement he founded, which was to be known by the name Can Tilang (Daan Lungsod) situated across the river;

2.) Compounding the loss, Moro raids started to decline, rendering isolation a no-growth liability; and

3.) Panikian, closer to the farm and sea, attracted the leftover inhabitants, thereby completing the abundant of Ilihan and Dinayhugan. If Dinayhugan is remembered or visited at all, it is because of the cave nearby that holds large deposits of guano and the treasure trove of relics, fossils, artifacts and other anthropological curiosities including tell-tale remains of the ancient church.

Aborted from her ancestral roots and with Panikian on the ascendant, Carrascal become a snail paced developing satellite of new Cantilan. This Cinderella episode in the development of Carrascal was to last 40 years, into the end of 1919, when she became the municipality independent of mother town Cantilan.

Now Cantilan, founded 232 years later than Ilihan, was soon to become the seat of Christianization and development of the sprawling jurisdiction extending as far to the south as Lanuza. Winning special esteem and influence, first from Fray Valero and later Fray Modesto Marzo y Casabana, founder of New Cantilan 1856, the New Cantilan held a runaway consideration on the priorities of the development-oriented friary.

Beyond all this, though Carrascal held an ace vital to an economic and industrial world prominence. For her mass of mountains constitutes a world-class growth potential no other Philippine could similarly claim. This potential was discovered early in the inception of the American regime. article copied verbatim from: www.wowsurigao.com/

Natural Resources of Carrascal, Surigao del Sur, 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.
