History of Tungawan, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines
- Source of article verbatim from tungawan.gov.ph/about-tungawan.html
Tungawan has a colorful history and varied cultures. But foremost is the tangerine-colored minute insect, belonging to the Hirudo Family, locally known as “Tungao” after which the town derived its name. It was said that during the early days, these tiny insects would usually prey on game hunters, who probed the depthness of the virgin forest of Tungawan, some 90 kilometers from the bustling town, which we now call the City of Zamboanga.
Tungawan, before it became a town, had a majestic mountains and vast plains and plateaus delicately cultured by nature with countless species of timbers, birds, flora and fauna. Today, only a few of these could be found in the small forest left untouched by unscrupulous loggers.
No traceable cornerstones could be found in Tungawan that would attest to its glorious past, except for some broken pieces of potteries, wares and metals of oriental designs which proved that either Malay or Chinese culture had once set foot on this jungle long before the Spaniards came. These also proved that the early people living in Tungawan were never subjected to foreign power.
The Subanens were the known early tribe to inhabit Tungawan. They were called "Subanos" which means "river people", for they usually build their seasonal huts along the river banks. They kept on moving from one place to another almost every year after harvest seasons. The early Subanos were primitive people. They usually build their huts with tree barks, round wood, bamboo strips, rattan and cogon leaves as roofing. The Subanens were adept with "kaingin" or "slash and burn" system of farming that limited their crops production to seasonal ones like camote, cassava, palay, corn and vegetables. Gathering of wild fruits, fishing and hunting supplemented their livelihood.
With the introduction of Islam in Tungawan, some of the Subanens were converted to the Islam faith while others retained their pagan belief. Some were of nomadic Samal Bangingi or Samal Vitali who inhabited the coastal areas who came to Tungawan during the later years were also converted to Islam by the Islam missionaries.
Centuries later, the Spaniards came, and converted some of the natives into the Christian faith. According to oral tale, the first group of Spaniards landed somewhere in Baluran, where the "yati" or "wati" trees are found. These trees are of South American origin.
As years passed, the society of the natives of Tungawan formed into three groups - 1) the Subanens, 2) the Samals and 3) the Kalibugans who were a mixture of the first two.
On May 24, 1960, by virtue of Executive Order No. 395, signed by then President Carlos P. Garcia, Tungawan was created into a municipality, out of the mother municipality of Ipil, Zamboanga del Sur. However, it was only on January 29, 1961 that Tungawan started operating as a corporate municipality, with 9 barrios within its jurisdiction. At present, there are 25 barangays comprising the municipality of Tungawan.

Natural Resources of Tungawan, Zamboanga Sibugay, 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.
