July 1 Holiday in Tagbilaran City, Bohol
« on: June 27, 2009, 02:26:42 PM »
Two local holidays, one effective for Tagbilaran City and the other for the whole Bohol are upcoming as July rolls this year.

By virtue of Republic Act 8267, this Wednesday July 1 is a non-working special public holiday for the city of Tagbilaran.

The day, familiarly commemorated as the Tagbilaran City Charter Day would the city’s 43rd anniversary since it obtained its charter since July 1, 1966.

Formerly a town called San Jose de Tagbilaran since February 9, 1742 by virtue of a decree by Spanish Governor General Gaspar dela Torre, Tagbilaran was also formally established as separate from Baclayon.
 
Historically too, the old settlement of a 15th Century Bohol, the place forms part of the "Bool Kingdom", states the city website.

Sometimes touted as a place called “tinabilan”, which means "screened", the city is also shielded on the southwest by Panglao Island and north by Maribojoc mountain ranges.
 
Tradition also tells that the word "Tagbilaran" was derived from “tago-bilaan”, a contraction from two local words tago (to hide) and Bilaan (a Muslim marauder tribe). Literally, it means a place hidden from the pillaging Muslims.

On July 1, 1966 by virtue of R.A. 4660, Tagbilaran became a chartered City.
 
As a chartered city, Tagbilaran was established by a Congressional act and is then governed by its own charter from where its leaders exact powers rather than look up to the provincial, regional or national laws. It also enjoys a higher Internal Revenue Allotment compared to towns.
 
“This is the main reason why by its own charter, the city has achieved a significant level of development in view of the increase in its share of internal revenues, an analyst who asked not to be named said.
 
Meanwhile, another holiday for Bohol is on the offing.
 
July 22, Wednesday is Bohol Day, and is another special non-working holiday by virtue of Republic Act 7683.

Regarding the phrase "pillaging Muslims", historians, like James Warren, clarify that this group actually consisted of different independent groups called Illanon, Tiron/Tirones (probably the origin of the word "Tirong") Iranon, Magindanaw, Laot, etc. They were not Muslims. The Spaniards called these groups Moros, after the dark-skinned Moors of a certain region in Spain.  They were the reason why there are hundred of watchtowers and church fortresses all over the country, among them the Castillo de San Vicente, more popularly called Punta Cruz Watchtower.

As per my research, Bilaans are not Muslims, but indegenous natives dominating Davao, Marbel and north mindanao. Their religion is either animist or hindus. They are among the circle of Srivijayan and Mujapahit empire.

During early 14th Century an arab missionary came to south of mindanao and married one of the Iranon princess of the maguindanao tribe in a rice plain of south mindanao. Only from that point did Islam spread in south of the Philippines.

Also that is the era of the desintegration of the Srivijayan Empire caused by the involvement of the Dutch with thier policy of divide & conquer, which weaken the monopoly of the spice trade.

During the time when Miguel Lopez de Legazpi arrived in Bohol, there were already skermishes by marauding factions affiliated to the Dutch leadership and probably the Bilaans were one of those groups.
