History of Siasi, Sulu, Philippines

THE ORIGIN OF SIASI, SULU (Seat of the North Borneo Tribute)

Siasi was formerly known as the Island of Muddas it was a center of trading in the Sulus aside from Jolo and Basilan from and to North Borneo and the Malayas. Named after its founder Datu Muddas since the 15th century. He was Brunei’s Royal Explorer for trade and barter markets comprising of goods and merchandises, such as; brass, musical instruments, agongs, salt, spices, fruits, weavens and perfumes. Indicative of what sort of men came to the island market. Some of these sort of men tend to abuse this island and plundered its people.

Datu Muddas was a brave and powerful man who looked after the welfare and wellbeing of this island market and of its people. He acted as judge, jury and prosecutor in suppressing crimes. In 1704 Datu Muddas was joined with his cousin Sayyid Nakhoda Perkasa Angging the grandson of 1363 Brunei Sultan Mohamad Shah (Zein Ul-Abidin Abu’bkr Sharif Ul-Hashim). The Nakhoda was Brunei’s fleet admiral or laksamana and was Brunei’s Maharaja in the Sulus with his flags of authority being Brunei Sultan’s twin authority.

Sayyid Nakhoda Perkasa Angging was known as Maharaja Anddin, as a maulana or protector of the North Borneo tribute ceded to the Sulu Sultanate by Brunei, so not be ceded to foreign powers as Palawan instead was ceded to the Spanish Government in Manila by Sulu Sultan Sahab-Uddin in 1705.

In 1838, American vessels were in Sulu doing exploring expeditions and in 1842 the Americans signed a treaty with Sulu Sultan Pulalun, the latter assuring the safety of American vessels in the Sulus. The Sultan forwarning the Americans of the possible danger in the Island Market of Muddas Island, for American presence there may lead to civil unrest and uprising against foreigners being a threat to the barter-trading-business. Besides, the Island need not be explored being already a center of trade and industry with heavy populace.

The American’s reply to the Sultan’s advised was, quote: “I see”, unquote. The island was then referred to by the Sultan’s men as; “Asi” while Datu Muddas was likewise referred to as, “Datu Asi”. During the Spanish encroachment in the Muslim Sultanates National Archipelago since 1521, Spain presented the Spanish Protocol Treaty of 1862 to Sulu Sultan Pulalun for Spanish Visiting Sovereignty Rights or Pretensions of Sovereignty in the Sulus.

In 1880, Spain established four garrisons camps in Jolo. Spaniards venturing to the island of Asi, they asked the inhabitants of what island was this. They were told that it was the Island of “Siya Asi”. Repeatedly said to the Spaniards, the Spaniard acknowledged, saying; “Si” meaning “yes”, “Si Asi?” or meaning “Yes Asi?”, the Spanish also farther referred to the Island as “Siasi” and to this day known as Siasi.

Natural Resources of Siasi, Sulu, 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.
