Official Name of the Barrio

Originally, all the existing barrio of Banaba were taken as one, and was named Banaba. The only distinction among the four geographical division were as follows: the western areas as “Kanlurang Pook”; the Southern part as “Magbabanig”; the Northern side as “Kaingin”; and the Eastern most part as “Pook ng Mestiza”; which is at present officially known as Banaba Silangan.

It was during the Commonwealth period that Banaba was divided and each geographical division was registered and given the official name: Pook ni Mestiza, being the eastern most side and part of Kaingin was named and registered as Banaba Silangan. This barrio is approximately six kilometers from the poblacion (Batangas City) and has an area of about 135.5 hectares.

Tracing back the generation of families, it was found out that Cabezang Pablo, a family of macatangay, was the first settlers in the eastern area. It was said that the natives of this place paid their taxes to this man who was appointed head of the barangay during that time.

In the early days, courtship and marriage in this place could exist even without the knowledge and consent of the persons concerned. But marriage can only be planned and realized after granting valuable things or piece of land as dowry on the part of the male. With the influence of the different races who had settled in this place, and with the drastic changes of the times, these folkways and practices, were modified and changed.

Other Information

Official Name of the Barrio

     Long before its name, Banaba South has been recognized as the mat weaving center. Due to this fact, Banaba South was called “Magbabanig”. When the barrio captain, Melecio Macaraig was assigned as the head of the barrio, the local arrangement made. This name Magbabanig was changed to Banaba south due to the fact that it is the Southern part of the original barrio Banaba. There were succeeding captain del barrios too. Each of them work hard for the success of the said barrio term because he succeeded in organizing our school and community improvement.

     The place became the dumping ground of explosive for the invasion of Japan.Pilferers were rampant. These explosives rurglrt many lives before they were dumped in the mid ocean by the bomb disposal.

Other Information
 
After the organization of the civil government the whole Banaba was headed by a "Teniente de Barrio". Due to rapid explosion of population this barrio was divided into four distinct groups such as Banaba ibaba, Banaba Silangan, Banaba Gitna, and Banaba Kanluran. Each has its own barrio government under a captain with six members of the board. This school lies in the territorial boundary of Banaba West, so that I shall dwell only on the historical and cultural data of this barrio.
 
The present official name of this barrio is Banaba Kanluran being strategically located in the Western part of Banaba. The name was derived from Banaba Tree which bears purple of Banaba. The name was derived from Banaba Tree which bears purple flowers with bread leaves good for kidney trouble. It was three sitios namely: Balimbing, Manggahan and kanlurang Karsada.

During the Commonwealth Government this barrio was separated from Banaba Silangan and Banaba Ibaba. Among the original families were: the family of Mr. and Mrs. Valentin Macatangay, Mr. and Mrs. Leodivico Clarete,, Mr. and Mrs. Agusto Paglicauan, Mr. and Mrs. Ramon Mendoza etc.


The following served as "Teniente del Barrio":

1. Tenienteng Pinong
2. Tenienteng Periano
3. Mr. Ramon Mendoza ----------------1926-1932
4. Mr. Pedro Macatangay --------------1932-1938

HOW BANABA GOT ITS NAME

When our town was occupied by the Spaniards there were two Spanish Civil Guards who reached this place. They went under a tree. The civil guards asked for the name of the place in their own language. Readily the two answered “Banaba” thinking that they were asking for the name of the tree where they were resting.

From that time on the place was called “Banaba” from that medicinal tree where the Civil Guards and the couple rested to escape from the intense heat of the sun.

 Except for the establishment of the first school in the whole Banaba not much is heard about the historical sites, structures and old ruins. The people are generally industrious. They are engaged to farm work and animal raising. Men tamed fighting cocks and transport them as far as Mindanao and Batanes. This becomes a good source of income for most of the families of this barrio.
 
During the Japanese time the farmers were made to harvest their palay even if they are not ready for harvest just to give way to cotton planting. This was done under compulsion. If one disobeys the order of “Nagata” the Japanese inspector, one was tied to a post for non-compliance to the order.

The school was opened only to propagandized the Japanese mighty power. People suffered very much because all means of communications were cut and the products raised by the people were consumed only within the community for fear of Japanese atrocities.

Today the people are looking forward for the economic, social and political upliftment, thru self-help.
