  3. 3. Materials that provide direct, firsthand information about subjects and events are called primary sources of information. Some examples of this source of information are speeches, journals, original letters, literary works, and historical documents such as the Constitution of the Philippines. On the other hand, secondary sources provide indirect and second-hand information.

  4. 4. An interesting dicovery made in Butuan in early seventies was that of a fossilized balangay, which was a long sailing vessel in common use through the Southeast Asian region in the pre-Spanish era. The barangay as a form of government was believed to have originated as a form of government was believed to have originated from the balangay.
  5. 5. A balangay had a hundred households at the most. It was led by a chieftain, called a datu. Migrants from the Malaysian and Indonesian Islands came to our shores using the balangay. Once here, they formed their own settlements, a cluster of which formed a single town ruled by a lakan or a sultan. A confedaracy of several settlements would join forces in case of aggression.
  6. 6. When the spaniards came, they instituted the barangay as a form local government headed by a cabeza. The change from balangay to barangay seemed to have been made by the Spaniard who could not pronounce the nasal nga of the Filipinos and preferred the r to l. I f the balangay of old were meant to preserve the peaceful and harmonious relationships between neighboring settlements, the Spanish barangay was used as a local instrument of the central government to pursue its colonial goals.
