History of Manito, Albay, Philippines
MANITO BRIEF HISTORY
MANITO is located on the eastern part of Albay, elevated as plateau facing Legazpi City: on the west of the Albav Gulf and surrounded by mountains on the east and south.
The poblacion Is just a stone's throw away from the seashore. It is hounded between two rivers, the Camanitohan and buvo divers that serve as Irrigation for small ricefield and sources of the residents.
Contrary to the people of this small town believe, the first settlers in the area came from Bacon, Cagraray Island or Casiguran which are geographically situated near Manito In prehistoric time, the Bicolanos from the above mentioned places had shown evidence of civilization. Recently artifacts unearthed from this place both by Filipino and foreign anthropologist show that Bicol Is Indeed Inhabited first by Bicolanos, not traders from foreign lands.
In 1840, a few settlers the Visayas can and settled in the place near the coast of Manito, because of fear from Moro marauders. They officially established the place and named It Manito, because it was abounding In clinging vine called "nito” Which belongs to rattan family and is used as raw material for making baskets. When nito vines are artistically made into baskets, the finished products are very beautiful because of the natural dark brown color similar to the color of coffee. The prefix "Ma” means plenty Manito means "plenty of nito".
Later, natives form the neighboring towns of Albay, Bacon, and Rapu-rapu who a fled from the Moro raiders found a safer place near the seashore and near the thick west Of Manito. In the post this town was surrounded by thick forest that gave natural fiction — o haven of safety and comport — to the Visayan settlers. Although they were braved and courageous they lacked arms and ammunitions to fight the Moros.
In the early years at settlement the center of this place that soon became the poblacion had only a fear scattered houses surrounded' to pour in, the forests were awed. The cleared areas were planted with abaca and other crops. Due to the abundance of food and money which the people earned through the sale of their forest and agricultural products Manito became a progressive settlement. But today it is left Mind by neighboring towns. This is probable due to its poor natural location and lack of industry. Forests are mostly denuded due to concession granting permission In the awn of trees in 1980s, while replanting of trees was neglected. Perhaps if nito vines had been planted together with other forest trees, the income atone fir this industry might be one of the major source of the residents these days.
The patron saint of this town is St. Rafael the Archangel whose feast day is celebrated every 24 dap of October.
In 1882 the municipality of Manito emerged in the limelight by virtue of PD k.20364 establishing Manito as reservation area for Geothermal Exploration and development On June 1904, the BACMAN geothermal Project has started its full operation and on October 80,1998, His Excellency President Joseph Estrada Inaugurated the additional 1.5 megawatt power/multi-crop drying plant located at Pawa, Manito in support of his food security program.

Natural Resources of Manito, Albay, Philippines
- 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.

- In 1982, the municipality of Manito came into the limelight when then President Marcos issued P.D. 2036-A establishing a large part in Manito (a portion of Bacon Sorsogon) as reservation area for a Geothermal Project (subject to private rights, of course)
Almost 1/4 of the area comprising almost five Barangays (boroughs) covering 6.5 kilometers across is owned by the late Cesario Fabricante (a prominent Bicolano lawyer) and Maria Garchitorena (a daughter of the first governor of Camarines Sur & colleague of Gen. Aguinaldo - Don Andreson) and passed it on intact to their heirs Sr. Blesila (a nun, Daughters of Charity), Cesar Augusto and Tiberio Cesar. It is a beautiful pristine place free of pollution from locomotives. It is the home of the Philippine National Oil Corporation and the National Power Corp of the Philippines where the former operates its steam fields and the later its power plant generation.
The area was depopulated by then president Marcos to prevent it from becoming a breeding ground of the local branch of the NPA. Its history goes back to prehistoric times when it showed evidence of civilization and artifacts uncovered showed it inhabited by Bicolanos. Settlers from visayas came in in 1840 fleeing from Moro marauders. The rattan family called locally as "Nito" is used as raw material for making baskets and furniture, thus the name Manito. "The prefix "Ma" means plenty and "nito" make for "Manito" which means plenty of nito.
In the early years the poblacion only had a few scattered homes surrounded by forest. The more than 5 square kilometers owned by the Fabricante Estate is the only one preserved from the ravages of deforestation and abuse. When PNOC built the roads crossing the estate, it had preserved the environmental integrity of the land where few automobiles other than those authorized gain access to its facility which includes a large administrative building near its pipelines and steam plants.
