PostSubject: History   Sun Sep 02, 2007 7:22 pm

POLITICAL AND CULTURAL HISTORY OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF JAMINDAN

The town of Jamindan has been under rule of the Spaniards for almost 3 centuries .The richness of its culture and traditions could be attributed to its past like any other towns in the island of Panay. The Spanish influence has literally been acculturated to the present system. Its people’s warmth and hospitality and their afflictions in the past greatly affected the personality of the people and became the striking force towards making Jamindan on its present state.

The place got its name from a tree called “Hamindang” which grow abundantly in the community. This tree grows plentifully along the banks of the river during early days of history.

In the year1744, Jamindan was made a Municipal District by then Governor Don Joaquin Dominguez. He then appointed Abao Dungon the native chieftain as the first Captain. Many distinguished leaders were appointed after Dungon, but the most popular of them all was Kapitan Manuel Orocio who during his reign paved the way in making Jamindan into a municipality in the year 1804.

The pre-hispanic era in this town is not so known to any one aside from its being thickly forested area with bountiful wild animals. The people mostly natives, lived and supported themselves through kaingin system and hunting of wild animals.

During the Spanish colonial period, an attempt to connect Jamindan to Batan by way of Jimino (now Altavas) was made. Historians revealed that natives under forced labor could ply between a certain Spaniard port in Batan and Jamindan by the horseback in order to bring in supplies.

A church made of stone was built in Jamindan under the supervision of the first Spanish priest by the name of Padre Tomas Palmis in the year 1882. It was said that the first image of the patron saint, San Sebastian came all the way from Spain through the port of Batan. During that time the patron saint was fetched from Batan to Jamindan via long procession of converts and devotees. Since then, the feast in honor of the patron saint has been traditionally observed and celebrated every 20th day of January.

During the Philippine-American war, Jamindan became the haven of Philippine forces retreating from the Americans. Among the Filipino soldiers who took refuge in Jamindan were Generals Ananias Diokno, Arce, Mariangan and Dulce. Diokno enjoyed the hospitality of the natives however, it was during the American regime that marks the gradual changes in the attitude of the people to seek and clamor for progress. With that clamor from the people, a macadam type of road was constructed linking Jamindan to other municipalities and eventually to the provincial capital of Capiz. Means of transportation was then made easy and education among youths was made possible.

The succeeding years could witness Jamindan‘s social and economic development. Schools, market and portion of Poblacion street was constructed. It was during the reign of the Commonwealth Government where Antonio Advincula became the last town executive and first elected town Mayor.

The bombing of the Pearl Harbor marks the beginning of the Second World War and Jamindan was not spared from the heinous effects of war. The Japanese landed on the beach and ultimately occupied the island, which was defended by the USAFFE soldiers under the command of Brig. Gen. Albert Christie. The local forces fought the enemy up to the last spill of their blood, but with the fall of Corregidor in May 6, 1942, an order of the total surrender was issued by Major General Wainright. However, splinter groups of officers and enlisted men of various rank that refused to surrender and organized themselves to suppress lawlessness and violence against the evacuees. It was during this time, that Jamindan suffered a setback. Once again, Jamindan was made a hideout of guerilla forces. A regimental headquarter for example was situated in Sitio Agsasaging of Barangay Lucero. For this reason, lots of houses were burned by the Japanese soldiers and for people being proven to be siding with the guerillas were beheaded. For almost 3 years of subjugation under the Japanese, enmity mounted and the degree of hostility heightened exposing the lives of civilians to constant danger.

On March 18, 1945, the American forces landed in the province of Iloilo and were reinforced by the men of Lt. Col. Macario Peralta. They liberated the islands of Panay and Romblon. This brought to an end to the dark chapter in the history of Jamindan under the Japanese rule.

The end of World War II did not end the sufferings of the people . After the war, Guerilla forces formed into a group of and they called themselves HUKBALAHAP or Hukbo ng Bayan Laban sa Hapon that became rampant and center of terrorism in the municipality especially when the claims of back pay came and they were not included, they felt they were neglected. What they did is to terrorize the local population to attract the government’s attention to their cause--- communist demagoguery and inspiration further fanned their fire of hatred. Fortunately, the government suppressed the movement through the efforts of President Ramon Magsaysay.

The postwar years marked generally with progress. Feeder roads within the town connecting almost all barangays were constructed. Poblacion roads were further developed and concretized. New schools were built and the old ones were rehabilitated. Infrastructure projects both urban by the National and Local undertook countryside Government to enhance the development of the town. Army engineers were assigned in the area to undertake local projects. A projection of rapid increase in population within few years was being determined. In 1957, President Diosdado Macapagal proclaimed 33,310 hectares of forestland into a Military reservation. Concrete bridges were being constructed to facilitate a smooth flow of transportation. With all those effort from the government via infrastructure projects, the people’s way of life gradually returned to normal.

The people of Jamindan have learned so much from the past and look with such optimism under the new social order. The town electrification gave birth to small industries which help the economic life of the people.

Today, Jamindan has recorded different local executives. Each of them have contributed a lot to the primary aim of developing the vast land area of the town being the largest Municipality in the Province of Capiz. The vast land area is an agricultural potential. Most of the land area have now been cultivated and planted to all kinds of crops especially cassava that is being grown in all the hilly portions of the Municipality.

Today, lots of changes could be noticed by just looking around. Barangay Poblacion streets are all concreted. The Municipal plaza is well trimmed and maintained with the sustainable Clean and Green Program being implemented, the town is assured that as far as environmental sanitation and protection is concerned, everything will be in place.

The advent of the Local Government Code did a lot of Jamindan as far as Community Development is concerned. With the Internal Revenue Allotment, the Municipal Executive and the people themselves could identify the problems to be solved and projected which suits the needs of the people. The debureaucratization of the Code allows the Non-Government Organizations (NGO) to participate in the Planning, implementation monitoring and evaluation of the projects and programs hence, development is sustainable. Aside from that National Government Agencies present in the area and are also working hand in hand with the Local Government Officials towards the realization of its dream --- economic and community development .
