History of Alubijid, Misamis Oriental, Philippines
- The article below was copied verbatim from:http://www.alubijidmisor.gov.ph/
The origin of the town’s name “ALUBIJID” could be traced during the pre-Spanish time when what is now Barangay Baybay had been dotted by big trees named Alubijid. Legend had it that some of these trees had become landmarks particularly the huge ones that had grown near the “Bukana” of a river and a “Looc” which had been the landing site of different traders from other island of the archipelago. From these traders, the place where they used to land had been called “alubijid”.
The natives whom the traders visited had congregated Ilihan Hill near a river. It was an ideal dwelling place of the natives since from its Summit one could see Macajalar Bay even the seas beyond Sulawan Point and could immediately view the incoming vessels of any traders and marauders. The place was also called “CALUMAT” coined from the words “Cauban, Agpas, Lukso, Ugma, Mamatay, Anak Tanan” a password adopted by the natives to warm them of surprise attacks of pirates and other marauders. The natives’ settlement had expanded to as far as Barangays Talaba and Sampatulog which are also elevated areas. Recent findings showed that some residents of the area had excavated Chinese porcelains, brass gongs and old coins in these areas. Active trading between the natives in these places and visiting traders had continued up to the Spanish time and these areas had become the core of Spanish Influence in the late 16th century.
Dean Manuel Gapuz who conducted investigations and researches of the history of the town noted that these settlement had been visited by Sultan Kudarat of Cotobato when he was recruiting forces to flight against the invading Spaniards. Some of Kudarat’s men had stayed in the place and intermarried with the natives. He further noted that as early as 1861, Alubijid was already an established community headed by local leaders until the outbreak of Philippine revolution against Spain in 1896. During the American occupation in the early 20th century, Alubijid was attached to Cagayan as a barrio. It was from this humble beginning that the present municipality had emerged.
On May 26 1933, the Municipal Council of Cagayan, Misamis Oriental had passed Resolution No. 290 recommending the barrios of El Salvador and Alubijid to become two separated district municipalities. Immediately the people of Alubijid headed by Atty. Daniel S. Galarrita had made a petition for the creation of Alubijid into a municipality. He was supported by Richard Abellanosa, Vincent A. Sabellina, Timoteo Balacuit, Sr., Wenceslao- Abellanosa, Quirico Villastique, Remedios Jamis Generalao, Onofre Ubay-Ubay, Felix M. Roxa, Sixto M. Roxas, Ismael B. Labis, Arcadio Balacuit, Lope Madjos, Bernabe Pacamalan, Eugenio Madrid and Juanario Macalaguing among others. So that on June 4, 1933, Provincial Governor Segundo Gasto promised the people of Alubijid who were gathered on assembly that he will personally bring the petition for the creation of Alubijid into a municipality and work for the approval with the Department of Interior in Manila.
To strengthen the movement, Atty. Daniel S. Galarrita wrote Representative Isidro Vamenta, acting Senate President Jose A. Clarin and Senator Juan Toralba of the 11th Senatorial District to help facilitate the approval of the petition for Alubijid to become a municipality on June 4, 1933. From that period on, the people had steadily pursued their objective. At last, on November 14, 1937, the Undersecretary of the Interior, Honorable Rufino Luna sent to the Provincial Board of Misamis Oriental a communication outlining the necessary requirements for creation of a new municipality of Alubijid. On December 21, 1938, the petitioners promptly prepared the requirements and after more than a year of preparation had sent it back to the Secretary of Interior submitted to the President of the Philippine with favorable recommendation for the organized portion of the municipality of Cagayan to form into an independent municipality of Alubijid.
On April 5, 1940, His Excellency Manuel L. Quezon, President of the Commonwealth of the Philippines signed Executive Order No.266 creating the Municipality of Alubijid from the portion of the Municipality of Cagayan, Misamis Oriental with the following barrios: Gitaguim, Laguindingan, Kibaghot, Matangad, Mauswagon, and Pangayawan. The new born municipality was formally inaugurated on July 1, 1940 with Don Gregorio Pelaez, the Provincial Governor indicating the newly appointed officials who were as follow: Timoteo Balacuit Sr., Municipal Mayor; Ismael B. Labis, Municipal Vice Mayor; Felix Roxas, Bernabe Pacamalan, Eugenio Madrid, Bartolome Tabura, Timoteo Abejo, Lino Maagad and Felixberto Roxas,Sr., as the Municipal Councilors.

Natural Resources of Alubijid, 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.

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 and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
