Here’s a video of Engr. Orlando Balloguing, President of the Bago National Cultural Society of the Philippines Inc. (BNCSPI), talking about the Bago tribe. [Thanks to the Sagunto Star for helping us with the name of Engr. Balloquing.]

As we blogged about earlier, our Bago brothers and sisters usually come from the Cordillera/Ilocos boundary towns such as Bagulin, La Union and Bakun, Benguet as well as in non-boundary places such as Candon, Ilocos Sur and Barangay Sagunto in Sison, Pangasinan.

Our Town: Bagulin, La Union

The town of Bagulin is found in the Cordillera mountain ranges but, administratively, it is a part of the province of La-Union. The town’s name was either derived from the name of a Kankanaey chieftain or from its original settlers, the Bago Igorots. More here.

Historically, Bagulin used to be a part of the old Mt. Province (i.e., the present Cordillera Administrative Region except Abra) but it was transferred to La-Union in 1923 following an agreement by the governors of the two provinces. At present, about 85% of the population of Bagulin are Kankanaeys or Bagos.

Blog Roundup: 02 April 07

We have been quite busy these last two weeks so we have not had a weekly roundup on Cordillera affairs as we did in the previous weeks. Anyways, to make up for that, we decided to do a round-up on what’s being said in the blogosphere.

If your spouse leaves you, files for divorce and marries in the U.S. can you file a bigamy case against him/her? Who will win in Kalinga’s congressional race? What would you do if a cement company builds roads to your barangay but destroys your mountains? Are you planning to watch the movie “300” but don’t know whether it is a good one?
