History of Pampanga, Philippines

PAMPANGA is a province in the very heart of the central plains of Luzon in the Philippines. The province derived its name from the Kapampangan language “pampang,” which means “riverbanks,” or people living along riverbanks for it was an ancient empire that once stood along the shore of Zambales in the north and extending as far as Mt. Arayat, the Rio-Grande De Pampanga or the great Pampanga River.

As a province, Pampanga was created in 1571 by the Spaniards for the purposes of government control, church territoriality and tax collection. In 1873, its present borders were drawn after the authorities ceded towns to neighboring provinces.

The Kapampangan bravery and independence of spirits is firmly embroidered as one of the rays of the sun in the Philippine flag, symbolic of its position as one of the first to rise up against the colonizers, For a time, the town of Villa De Bacolor became the capital of the Philippines during the British occupation in 1762 to 1764.

During World War II, Pampanga was the scene of many bloody combat. Clark Air Base, a large American military installation in Angeles City, was among the first targets of the Japanese invaders. The tragic Death March ended in the railway station of San Fernando, from where the weakened soldiers were transported to Capas in Tarlac.

Progress flourished after the grant of independence to the Philippines. Industries began to make a headway, due to the accessibility of the province and the laying of the first concrete road from Manila. The largely agricultural commerce of rice and sugar became the flashpoint of agrarian unrest. Subsequent land reform brought peace in the countryside, and the religiosity of the Kapampangans as an influence cannot be discounted either.

Leaders of government were also born here. President Diosdado Macapagal was born in poverty in the town of Lubao, where Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo also spent her first years. Eminent Church personalities were also the sons of the province, such as the first Filipino Cardinal, Rufino Santos.

The combined natural disasters of earthquakes, lahar flow and typhoons in the 90′s did not dampen the resilient spirit of the Kapampangans. Whole towns were almost obliterated, families were uprooted and the prospect of a large-scale diaspora became a real threat. But the people did not surrender. Armed with their faith in a provident God, the people dug in and adapted so amazingly to the challenges that the nature threw at them. Today, the curse has become a blessing, for the volcanic ash became the source of the quarry industry again just as in olden times.

The history of the province reveals the character and quality of the people: industry, faith, toughness, intellect, creativity, leadership, bravery. For all these traits, Pampanga stands as it has proudly stood before, solidly claiming its rightful place of leadership among the province of the nation.

Natural Resources of Pampanga, 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.

San Luis to commemorate birthday of Huk Supremo Luis Taruc

SAN LUIS, Pampanga- Preparations are underway for the commemoration of the birth anniversary of the former Huk Supremo, icon, and hero Luis Taruc on June 21.

San Luis Mayor Venancio Macapagal and Dr. Romy Taruc, a descendant of the Supremo, are planning the activities which initially include the installation of a marker and wreath-laying on the area where the house of Taruc used to stand in barangay Sta Monica.

During the 2nd World War, Taruc, together with Castro Alejandrino, Felipa Culala (Kumander Dayang-Dayang) and Bernardo Poblete (Kumander Banal) founded the HUKBALAHAP (Hukbong Bayan Laban sa mga Hapon) on March 29, 1942. Taruc was chosen to lead the 30,000 –strong guerilla group and attack the Japanese invaders at every opportunity.

In 1946, Taruc and five others were elected to the Congress. However, they were denied their seats on charges of terrorism. After negotiations with President Manuel Roxas failed, Taruc went underground. In 1948, Taruc agreed to surrender to then President Elpidio Quirino but did not push through. The Huks’ control of Luzon alarmed Quirino that he assigned Minister of National Defense Ramon Magsaysay to subdue the movement.

In 1954, during the presidency of Ramon Magsaysay, Taruc surrendered to Benigno Aquino, then a reporter of the Daily Mirror and a secret emissary to the Supremo. He was brought to Manila and sentenced to 12 years in prison. After being denied executive clemency by President DiosdadoMacapagal, finally in September 1968, President Ferdinand Marcos pardoned him.

Taruc continued to work for social and agrarian reform.

He died of a heart attack at the St. Luke’s Medical Center on May 4, 2005. He was 91 years old.
