A. HISTORY OF THE BARANGAY

Brief History

Ambongdolan was derived from the Ibaloi word bongdol, meaning “rainbow”. The bongdol or rainbow usually appears near the waterfalls. This made the natives of the place believe that the bongdol dwells near the waterfalls by the river cascading near the caves.

During the American regime in the country, American engineers and surveyors were dispatched to different places in the old Mountain Province, which is now the Cordillera Administrative Region, as they were then preparing the map of the sub-province of Benguet. One of the places they went to is in the western part of the municipality of Tublay.  On their way to the western part of Tublay, they followed the old Spanish trail on horseback.  Along their way, they saw a group of people watching the bongdol near the waterfalls. Using their Native Language (English), they asked the people about the name of the place while pointing at the bongdol.  Thinking that the surveyors were asking about what they were doing, someone in the group replied in Ibaloi, “mika bodboja-a ima mapmapteng ja san asavan bongdol” (we are watching the beautiful pair of rainbow).  The Americans wrote down the last word, bongdol.  Since then, the barangay was named Ambongdolan.

Moreover, the early settlers of the barangay were the Ibalois namely, Lacaden and Shogan Diwas with his wife Cofenas. They thrived mostly on farming to supplement foods gathered from the forest.  They have learned to domesticate animals for their customary practices and for barter with the products of the lowlanders specifically salt.

Barangay Ambongdolan was created December 13, 1920. It was formerly a sitio of Barangay Tublay Central but due to its increasing population, it was declared a separate barangay.

The foreigner, while pointing to the smoked meat, asked what it was. The old folks answered kenuday. After that, the foreigner asked the name of the place, since the old folks did not understand English, they again answered kenuday. From then on, the place was referred to as Tublay which was derived from the word kenuday. Later, it was named as Tublay Central because in the early days, this is where the seat of government was located.
