Bagulin

Bagulin is a fifth class municipality in the province of La Union, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it had a population of 12,590 people.EtymologyTradition reveals that Bagulin derived its name from a Kankanaey tribal leader. Sometime in the middle of the 18th century, the municipality is part of the township of Allabok which covers the moderate slopes of the mountain ranges overlooking the China Sea. During those times, war tribes was prevalent. Allabok involved itself in a tribal war headed by Bagulin who led the community to victory. From then on until his death, the people highly regarded him as their noble leader. After his death, consensus with the residents together with the concurrence of Spanish authorities resulted in naming the community after Bagulin. At present, Kankanaey still dominate the town’s population.Another etymological version states that “Bagulin” was derived from the term “bago” which means “lowland natives”. This version is further supported by the fact that Kankanaeys comprise some 85% of the municipal population.GeographyThe municipality of Bagulin is located at the interior eastern part of the province of La Union.
