History of Bucloc, Abra, Philippines
Among the early known settlers of Bucloc is Capitan Daodawen of Cabaruyan, Daguioman. He was the only son of Maday-acan, who migrated from “Vhotloc”, Dao-angan, Kalinga-Apayao. Later on, Maday-acan migrated to Bingtitan, Bacao, Sallapadan where he married Ao-wanen of Masadiit who was of Masadi-iy and Binongan parentage.
In January 1952, Capitan Daodawen celebrated his 115th birth year, based on record of a citation in his honor given during the Spanish regime. The would fix his birth year somewhere in 1837. He died in 1957.
At the turn of the 19th century, Maday-acan and his brothers Wanawan and Wadwadan from Vhotloc, Dao-angan together with Siddayao and his brothers Gaddawon and Cagayongan from Longwa-an, Balbalasang, Kalinga migrated to the lowlands called “day-as” in Kalinga. Madayacan proceeded to Bangtitan, Bacao but Siddayao and company stopped at Nagasasan. Presumably, they had previous contact with the people of Bacao or that they had relatives among them. During their stay in these places, they took time to explore the adjacent territories and they discovered a valley (now Bucloc-Daguioman), a very good place for settlement. Maday-acan and his group later moved to Codal, Ud-udiao, Sallapadan where his only son, Daodawen,was born.
One day, Siddayao visited his cousins Bayay and Puglay at Pacsal, Sallapadan and proposed to them that they all moved down to the valley. In honor of the occasion, Puglay butchered a big fat pig and drunk wine from a bamboo tube 7-8 meters long. Looking at the bile of the pig butchered, they foresaw the success of their planed move down the valley. For their own convenience and protection from other tribes, Siddayao and his group occupied the eastern part of the valley from Lingey upstream.
Peglay and group were awarded the lower part of the land from Lamao westward. The early settlers named their own abode “Vhotloc” which was the name of the former abode of Maday-acan and family at Kalinga. “Vhotloc” means the “land of flowing or living streams” describing the new settlement which has a river with numerous brooks or creeks. To the early settlers, Vhotloc was the land of promise, if not “Beulah land”. Siddayao and his group of families settled first at Baniwas, then at Cadacad and finally at Lingey during the third or fourth year since moving into the valley. Peglay with the group of the same number of families moved in two groups at Daldalao and Lamao.
In a decade or more, Siddayao became a widower. He married an Amazonian beauty from Guina-ang, Pasil, Kalinga by the name of Danny. When Siddayao went to Guina-ang to consummate his marriage to Danny, he went to Balatoc and invited the relatives of Danny to migrate to Danac. Danac was explored by Siddayao a few years before his second marriage. Passing through Banao, now Pantikian, Kalinga, he invited his relatives to come down to ”Vhotloc”. Siddayao with his new bride moved and settled finally in Lamao where they died of old age.
In the meantime, the group of men went headhunting at Bangkagan, Luba. Bayay, as a leader, is with the group looking for a victim. They saw instead a beautiful lady taking a bath in a spring above her village. Bayay fell in love with the woman that he negated his initial purpose. What followed was a marriage between Bayay and the lady namedTannao. Tannao was said to be a beautiful lady with aquiline nose, fair complexion and and golden hair. The marriage of Tannao and Bayay ended the feud and headhunting between the Bannao and Maleng clans of Luba and Tubo. Bayay finally settled in Luba, but two of his immediate progeny were married later in Lamao, Catimban and Banawa. Banawa is remembered in local history as the runner who warned the people of Tiempoof the headhunters from Banao. As a result, Daluping of Danao was killed and several men of Banao group were wounded.
When Spanish sovereignty was establish, the seat of government was in San Andres now Lingoy. Siddayao as the Gobernadorcillo invited many of his clansmen from Banao. The migrants later populated Cabaruyan, Pikek, Tui and Ableg. Among the migrants who became officials were; Andomang, Gaddawan, Salabao, Di-ig, Cagayongan and Daodawen. Daodawen served as Gobernadorcillo from the Spanish Era until the arrival of the Americans. With the coming of the Americans, the first official to be appointed was Daligdig, which was a reward for helping the Americans against the “insurrectors”. Daligdig was succeeded by Bitakong, Sagmayao, Quelang and Lumawig among others.
When the town was re-organized, Sallapadan became a town in 1917 including in its territory barangays Lamao down to Ducligan. Lingey up to Ableg remained as territory of San Andresdue to the anomalous conduct of elections in Sallapadan, Lubuagen and some of the leaders of Bucloc petitioned the national government for a new town. In 1920, Bucloc was founded covering the barrios of Ducligan, Labaan,Lamao and Lingey. The first “President” was Lubuagen.
Up to the time, Bucloc is still composed of 4 barangays, namely: Ducligan, Labaan,Lamao (poblacion), and Lingey. (source verbatim from: http://www.abra.gov.ph/)

Natural Resources of Bucloc, Abra, 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 and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
