HISTORY

The area which is known today as Barangay Poblacion Malapatan was first inhabited by the indigenous B'laan people. They considered it as their ancestral domain as their ancestor settled in the area since time immemorial.

B'laan people organized their communities and practices their own brand political, economical and cultural sytem. Their settlement was greatly clan based and scattered from the plans along the coastline and extended uphill to the remote interiors. Each of these settlements were under the leadership of clan's elder whom the'y addressed as Fulong or wise men. The recognized clan elders were Fulong Bob, Bagan, Balatawan, Bantilan, Balandan, Daban, Maladian, Maguan, Molana, Moranos, Mangaron, Masalon, Sucal, Sundot, Sangay, Lawa, Gafa, Pandita, Fanagel, and Lantingan.

Economically, B'laan people were shift cultivators and experts for hunting wild games gathering wood fruit and wild jams to supplement their daily subsistence. They also practiced barter or as their traditional business system and Kasfala for political concerns.

Muslims form Maguindanao migrated in the area. They were the descendents of the native inhabitants in Maguindanao whom Sultan Sharif Kabungsuan converted to Islamic faith as early as 1500's when he arrived there in (Kuta Bato) Cotabato. The first Muslims migrated to Malapatan were Ambang, Harid, Toto, Batil, Kompol, Malinog, Tumbaga, Tacber, Sambaga, Suib , Kuaya, Arip, Tin, Pangolima, Lanang, and Singcoy. Muslims and B'laans contact ushered some changes, in politics economy and cultural ways.

The Maguindanao Muslims tried to convert the B'laan inhabitants into Islamic faith but majority of the B'laans refused for they preferred their own costumes tradition and religious belief. However, Muslims married B'laan women and converted them to Islamic faith. Through those marriages, they established political relationship with the native inhabitants. Furthermore, this relationship had help them acquire land holdings in the ancestral lands of the B'laan people .

Form then on, Maguindanao Muslims and the indigenous B'laan become neighbors and Barter partner. Through barter Malapatan got its name. Malapatan is a two (2) B'laan word coined together; Malah meaning pepper and Fatan meaning wait. It signifies that the Barter partners used to wait at the place where the pepper was abundant.

In later years, people from Luzon and Visayas, predominantly Christians also migrated in the area. The first Christians Settlers were the Calonzo, Millona, Gadni, Vargas, Morales, Santiago, Daoel, Barcena, Pajarillo, Saturion, and Cablitas. The governments settlements program had opened Mindanao for those landless peasant and for those who were seeking greener pasture. Mindanao was dubbed “ The Promise Land “

Some of those migrants arrived here in Malapatan. In the course of time Christians also acquired landholdings in the ancestral land of the B'laan people, thus, making the area into a multi-racial community.

The complexity of the new community as it was become a multi – racial brought a new challenge to both the B'laans, Muslims and Christians. Historical facts told us that warfare's political and cultural differences made the B'laans left the lowland and retreated to the high land s. those who tolerated assimilation remained.

Greater portion of the B'laan people ancestral lands in the plains were occupied and become the land holdings of Muslims and migrants.

However, as time passed by the B'laans, Muslims and Christians lived closely which subsequently led to the creation of Malapatan as Barangay under Glan municipality.

In July 27, 1949, then President Elpidio Quirino signed Executive Order no. 250 to the creation of Malapatan as Barangay under Glan municipality. Gregorio Santiago was appointed to become the first Teniente delBarrio,he served from 1949-1960, with the members of the Barrio council namely Fulong Mayang Lantingan, Datu Mama Kuaya, Datu Lambak Tin, Datu Ido Tin, Datu Sali Andog Mr.Eusebio Baran, and Mrs. Lourdes Santiago Tañamor as secretary and treasurer. The succeeding appointees were simplicio “Piao” Wata 1960-1964 Clemente Monticillanos, Esmael Maramba, Hadji Lasid Suib, and Mayang Lantingan. Started in 1982 elections of Barangay officials were held Victor S. Tañamor was the first elected barangay Captain and remained in the position up to the present. He served more than 21 years already as the barangay captain.

Barangay Malapatan is turning 54 years old today . From it the Municipality of Malapatan was created on June 21, 1972. And the next blessing we must all pray to the Lord is that Malapatan will become one of the most beautiful city in the country in years to come.
