BARANGAY AMBIONG

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

Long time ago, Barangay Ambiong was a part of a vast land in La Trinidad. However, it got no name during those times until settlers from Kabayan, Bokod, Amburayan, Ampusongan and Kibungan of Benguet came. Majority of the natives who settled in the area were the Ibalois and Kankanaeys. The term Ambiong originally came from the ibaloi word “AMBIONGAN” which generally means “BLACK CARPET BEES”. These bees were often found in the rolling hills and forests where wild flowers and the thick foliage used to abound. They also make their shelters by drilling through the trunk of dead trees. Ambiong was predominantly a thick lush, rich flora and fauna up until the 1960’s. For a long time, before the modern era, the area was purposely for hunting and food gathering activities.

Generally, the Barangay was a part of Barangay Eastern Pico but it was separated in 1948 by virtue of Presidential Decree (P.D.) No. 3590 and P.D. No. 557. Since then, it was called BARANGAY AMBIONG.

Today, it functions as the watershed of both the Municipality of La Trinidad and the City of Baguio. Ambiong’s land use remains to be at least 50% forest. Aside from this, the production of chrysanthemum cut flowers is increasingly becoming predominant. To maintain the balance between its forests despite its growing commercial production is the challenge of today’s development planners.

This socio-economic and physical profile has been produced in an effort to provide baseline and benchmark information regarding Barangay Ambiong. It further assesses the basic needs of its people in terms of livelihood, health and sanitation, peace and order, education, shelter, basic utilities and people’s participation among others. These shall hopefully assist decision-makers from the barangay to the highest level of government and non-government organizations by providing insights for programs and projects for the development of the barangay.
