About Zamboanga del Norte Province, Philippines
Zamboanga del Norte is subdivided into 25 municipalities and 2 cities. These are further subdivided into 691 barangays, and clustered into 3 congressional districts..
Dubbed as the “Twin-City Province,” Zamboanga del Norte has been made famous by the beauty and charm of the Orchid City of Dipolog and the historical, rustic quaintness of the Shrine City of Dapitan.
Decrying Spanish authority over his beloved country, Dr. Jose P. Rizal, Philippine National Hero, lived in exile in faraway Dapitan City, then only a sleepy town in Mindanao. Here, he spent fruitfully his last four years in exile, from 1892 to 1896, to practice medicine, pursue scientific studies, keep with his artistic and literary endeavors, and widen his knowledge of languages. In Dapitan, Dr. Rizal found a school and a hospital, and became a farmer to prove to the people that farming is as good a profession as medicine.
The original estate of Dr. Rizal in Dapitan has been declared a national shrine and is being administered by the National Historical Institute. Hence, the city monicker, “Shrine City of the Philippines.” By the year 2020, Dapitan is poised to become the Dr. Jose Rizal Heritage Center of the Philippines, owing to the wealth of Rizal memorabilia and memorable places associated with the country’s beloved hero.
Zamboanga del Norte today is equally famous for Dakak Beach, the province’s foremost natural attraction. The very popular Dakak Beach is most known for its beautfiully shaped cove and powdery white sand, and as a diving mecca in Mindanao. Pristine blue waters, excellent dive sites with an abundance of coral reefs, and a magnificent sunset horizon characterize this tropical eden. Dakak Park and Beach Resort boasts 15 hectares of wooded land, a natural reservoir for native plants and animals, and a 750-meter private white-sand beach.
The southern part of Zamboanga del Norte is basically deprived from economical development. It does not benefit from the economy of the 6th largest city in the Philippines (Zamboanga City). The barangay of zamboanga city that borders zamboanga del norte is Limpapa. The municipality of zamboanga del norte that borders zamboanga city is Sibuco.
Only dirt road connects Zamboanga City to Sibuco and yet the town of Sibuco thrives as 1st Class municipality. As of August of 2012, Commercial vehicles and standard vehicles can't cross over to Zamboanga City via Limpapa. So instead of travelling only less than 40 kilometers to trade in the bustling barangays of zamboanga city, Merchants of Sibuco have to travel ove 300 kilometers via highway or travel by sea. Instead of just a hour or two of travelling time, Merchants have to put up with one (1) day of travel just to trade.
The congressman for this 3rd district is Cesar G. Jalosjos.

History of Zamboanga del Norte Province, Philippines
When the Spaniards arrived in the Philippines in the 16th century, Zamboanga was already populated by Muslims, along the coast and rivers, by Visayans, in Dapitan, and by the Subanuns in the interior. Dapitan, one of the earliest towns visited by the Spaniards, was believed to have been established by refugees from Bohol fleeing the destruction of their settlement by Moluccans.
Jesuit missionaries started their missions in 1629, in Dapitan but progress was hindered by continuous warfare between the Spaniards and the Moros. For much of the Spanish period, Zamboanga del Norte was administered as part of two provinces. Dapitan was made part of the corregimiento of Misamis, while the western part was part of the corregimiento of Zamboanga. In the 19th century, when Misamis became a province, Dapitan formed one of its partidos or divisions. In 1837, the corregimiento of Zamboanga became a military government. In 1843, the Spaniards gained title to the area between Zamboanga and Dapitan through a cession by the Sultan of Maguindanao. Beginning in the later half of the 19th century, many Visayans settled in
Zamboanga due to population pressure in Cebu and Bohol. Many petty criminals and political dissidents were likewise sent to settle in the sparsely populated Zamboanga coast. Dapitan is most famous as the place of exile of Philippine national hero Dr. Jose Rizal. For more than three years, he lived in the town, before he was executed for allegedly instigating the Philippine Revolution. His house still stands and is now a museum.
In 1914, when the Americans established the Department of Mindanao and Sulu, Zamboanga was made one of its regular provinces. Zamboanga province was divided into two in September 1952 by virtue of Republic Act No. 711. The town of Dipolog became the capital of the province of Zamboanga del Norte.
People of Zamboanga del Norte Province, Philippines
The main dialect is Cebuano/Visayan. English and Filipino (Tagalog) are also spoken, indicative of a high level of literacy. The original and native Subanen dialect lives on, especially in the highlands.
At present, Zamboanga del Norte is populated largely by Dipolognons and Dapitanons, said to be the descendants of migrants from the province of Bohol, who were attacked in 1563 by Ternate raiders, and forced to resettle elsewhere. Thus the principal dialect of the province is Cebuano, but with a Boholano accent.
Zamboanga del Norte is also the home of the Subanun, or 'people of the upstream' (also Subanen, Suban-on). They are upland and swidden cultivators, who prefer to build their houses on top of ridges near potable water sources near their fields. They prefer to locations near springs rather than streams. Through the years, land problems and degraded environment have forced some of the people to adopt wet rice agriculture. Metal craft and weaving are also practiced. The Subanons have maintained trade with coastal peoples through the centuries. Present day Subanons are non-aggressive, although there are indications that in the past the people were required to provide a "soul companion" for an important deceased relative. ‘Buklog’ is a Subanon set of unique rituals that utilizes a huge dancing platform to which a log is attached that hits a hollowed sounding board on the ground.
Sinulog and Kinabayo are celebrated every July 24-25 in Dapitan City in honor of the city’s patron, Saint James. The Sinulog is a dance procession and Kinabayo is an exotic and colorful pageant re-enacting the Spanish-Moorish wars, particularly the Battle of Covadonga. In that battle the Spanish forces under General Pelagio took their last stand against the Saracens. They were able to reverse the tide of the war with the miraculous apparition of Saint James, the Apostle. The addition of local color and innovations has made this annual festivity a popular attraction to visitors of Dapitan.
The shrine to Dapitan’s most famous sojourner, national hero Jose Rizal, still stands and gives testimony to Rizal’s exile in the town in the late 19th century. His house and part of the innovations he instituted in his small estate still stand and draw hundreds of tourists.

- 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.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.

- Occupying an area of more or less one hectare (2.711 acres), the Dapitan City Plaza was developed and beautified by Dr. Jose Rizal, the Philippines' National Hero, with the assistance of Gov. Carcinero. His plan had been to make it comparable to the plazas he had seen in Europe.
- Relief Map of Mindanao

Probationers, parolees join Brigada Eskwela in Roxas
- Wednesday, May 22, 2013 2:45 pm
- By Alfonso T. Ruda (PIA9)
DIPOLOG CITY – Thirty four probationers, parolees and volunteers from five municipalities of Zamboanga del Norte have participated in the “Brigada Eskwela” at Roxas Central School in Barangay Langatian, Roxas, Zamboanga del Norte.
Jose Allan Santillana, Chief Parole and Probation Officer, said the activity is part of the community-based rehabilitation treatment program for the clients of the Zamboanga del Norte Parole and Probation Office (PPO) from the municipalities of Roxas, Sergio Osmeña, Katipunan, Manukan and Jose Dalman.
The volunteers’ participation in this year’s “Brigada Eskwela” was realized after the clients underwent a “conferencing,” a restorative justice process of the PPO.
Santillana pointed out “that through this activity, the parolees and probationers hoped to repay the damage they had done against their community and hasten their normal return to the society where they once belonged.”
“This activity aims to help instill in the clients the feeling of self-worth and belongingness to the community and restore the confidence in them,” he said.
The Parole and Probation Officer hoped that this activity would also awaken the community of the reality that these offenders are also human being and that when properly guided, instead of being admonished, can still become assets and productive members of the society.
Aside from guiding the offenders back to their normal life, Santillana said, their involvement in the Brigada Eskwela also served as the agency’s contribution to DepEd’s preparation for the opening of classes this school year 2013-2014.
Santillana attributed the successful conduct of the activity to the collaborative effort of Roxas Volunteer Probation Aide Association and the Faculty of Roxas Central School, as he also expressed his gratitude to RVPA President Mr. Jesus Bagaipo for giving the probationers and the parolees an opportunity to render community work service through the Brigada Eskwela, a nationwide yearly school preparation activity of the Department of Education (DepED) two weeks before the opening of classes.
