Municipality Of Tulunan

Brief ProfileGeneral InformationMunicipal OfficialsBarangays

tulunan logoThe Tulunan is derived from a Maguindanaon word “tulun” which means “a place of abundance” or “where grace fall”. The early settlers of the place were mostly Muslim tribes who settled in the lowlands. The nomadic tribes like the B’laans, Bagobos and Tirurays occupied the hills and mountains. The first system of government was datuism and the first ruling datu of the place was believed to be Datu Enok. With the coming in of the Christian settlers from Luzon and Visayas and the inter- marriages between the new settlers with the inhabitants of the place, a marked increase in the population was noted.
