History of Plaridel, Misamis Occidental, Philippines
- article copied verbatim from: www.plaridelmisocc.gov.ph
“LANGANAN”, the local term for “delay” . A river so named because of its circuitous, winding route that traverses many kilometers. This river then was the highway by which people traveled on to reach the different settlements located along the riverbanks. Tales have it that the first Spaniard who arrived in one of the riverbank settlements asked what the name of the place was. Thinking that the Spaniard was asking for the name of the river, the settlers answered, “LANGANAN”.
The Spaniard found it hard to pronounce and instead uttered “LANGARAN” . This became the name of the place which now is the Municipality of Plaridel. Original settlers of LANGARAN were the Subanens. Farming, fishing and hunting were their means of livelihood. With their slash and burn (Kaingin) way of farming, they opened tracts of land for agricultural purposes. These tracts were later on bartered for axe heads and salt with the migrants.
Owing to the migration of settlers and the Subanens”innate shyness, the Subanens who are known for their love of nature and isolation, moved inward into the hinterlands. These people now live in the foot-hill as well as in Mount Malindang itself. No known fixed date could be pinpointed as to the start of the wave of migration into LANGARAN. But proofs such as ceramic wares, jars, glass beads and other relics proved that the Chinese traded with the people even before the Spaniards came.
The relics were unintentionally excavated when irrigation canals were dug along a place believed to be a burial ground (Orayao) . Unmindful of their historic-cultural values, the relics were further destroyed by the diggers, thus destroying a precious legacy to the now generation. Oral history has it that the first settlers migrated from the neighboring island of Siquijor sometime in 1870. Alicio Kais , together with other settlers, was credited as the one who opened and started the first settlement. The Boholanos then followed suit as businessmen/traders with their “manggad” of salted fish (ginamos), dried fish (bulad) and mats (banig) which they traded / bartered with agricultural products. These traders travelled from Bohol using the “PARAW” , a native boat.
During the onslaught of “amihan” (northeasterly winds) during the months of October to February, this light but sturdy vessels were docked at a tributary of the Langaran, some meters away from the river delta. This place still bears the name to these days, Purok Paraw of Northern Poblacion. Later on, this “paraw” was replaced with bigger and sturdier “batil”, a native sail boat. Some traders decided to establish a settlement in what is now known as Barangay Sta. Cruz, so named after a popular religious icon in Bohol. Subsequent migrations followed with the settlers coming from Siquijor, Bohol and Leyte, particularly Maasin .
Early inhabitants narrated that a Spanish Priest forded Lobog River, there, he constructed a wooden bridge of strong materials across the Lobog River and settled in Langaran. Then, he constructed a church, convent and a presidential building. This was the start of a Spanish settlement located at what is now the Poblacion. Ruins proved that a fort was existent in Langaran during the Spanish period.
This fort was destroyed including a kiosk situated at the town plaza either by intention or by the ravages of time. Preservation was an unheard of thing then. The only remnant is a portion of a wall situated at the Catholic Church ground. A survey of the lay-out of roads in the Poblacion will also point out to the formal lay-out common to all Spanish settlements with the church and the plaza as a focal point.
The Plaridel Catholic Parish already celebrated its centennial in 1985 . During the later part of the Spanish period and into the American period, the parish became a “visita” of the Parish of Dapitan, Zamboanga del Norte.
Due to the migrants’diligence, more tracts of land, aside from those acquired through barter, were cleared and converted into ricelands which now covers more than 1,000 hectares. To be able to provide water to the ricelands and with the ingenuity and leadership of Nazareno Gamutan , an almost illiterate Boholano, the settlers constructed irrigation canals passing through the hills and rock formations from the Langaran River to the Riceland. November 1, 1876 is mentioned as the date of construction. It was quite an engineering feat considering that the construction was quite sans the aid of sophisticated machinery. Up to the present, the said irrigation system is considered as one of the best in the whole Philippines and was the subject of various studies by irrigation experts. The group of settlers who constructed it, is now considered as the first ever cooperative in the country.
The American period saw Langaran as a centre for education. A reminder of this fact is the Gabaldon Building, a barracks-style school building situated at Plaridel Central School, one of the remaining few which is still intact throughout the Philippines. One Mr. Haynes , an American teacher even married a local lass. It was one of the biggest towns of the former province of Misamis. The seat of government of the municipality or settlement known as “Langaran” was in the sitio of Daisug , known as the Municipality of Lopez Jaena .
The town named Langaran was changed into “Plaridel” in the year 1907 , when the late Santos Palma was elected municipal President. From that period the town Langaran disintegrated bringing along a big portion of its territorial area which later on formed into a separate municipality now known as the Municipality of Sapang Dalaga and the district of Concepcion. Later on, the sitio of Daisug became a town now known as the Municipality of Lopez Jaena. During the administration of the late President Carlos P. Garcia , Sitio Solinog now known as Calamba was created into a separate municipality.

Natural Resources of Plaridel, Misamis Occidental, 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.
