History of Lamisahan, Zamboanga City

Barangay Lamisahan has a sweet and meaningful history. It is one of the 98 Barangays of Zamboanga City.

As early as 1898, Lamisahan was covered by lush virgin forest and unknown by its name. Settlers came and inhabited the area as early as 1901. They began clearing patches of forest and planted agricultural crops.

Moreover, after the Second World War, American surveyors came together with some Tagalog men-guide and visited the area. The Americans were impressed by the abundance of the resources and particularly, the fresh waster from the river.

While they surveying the place, they put up their temporary shelter where to stay. They planted and cultivated sugarcane which served as form of sugar.

One day while they were walking, they thought of a name to call the place. The Americans were joking with their Tagalog friends who served as their guide and named “LAMI-SA-MESA”, meaning the delicious and tasty food on the table. Someone said the name “lamisahan” could have been derived from the Tagalog words “lamisahan”, meaning they enjoy the fresh cool and sweet water from an open spring to the river.

The clearing of the forest continued when a logging company by the West Basilan Timber operated in the area between 1956 to 1963. The group was composed of ilonggos, tagalongs, visayans and zamboangueños.

This date also marked the first time they made their presence felt. The catholic mission most appropriately started on June 27, 1956, this was the first Barangay Fiesta in honor of “Our Mother of Perpetual Help”. This also marked in the minds of the residents the name of the place from Lami-sa-Mesa or Lamisa-mahn to its present name “Lamisahan”.

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. We have too many black outs.
