Historical Background

Just like other places in our country, Dulian during the pre-Japanese regime, places in our country either got either got its name after saints, persons known in the place, or a variety or quantity of plants found in the area or a rare kind of plant or fruit tree available in the place which is either found by early residents of the place or by hunters, who during those times roam around the mountain slope hunting for wild pigs, chickens, deer or any wild animal with meat that can be used for human consumption.

>Long ago, before the Japanese invaded our country, hunting is a favorite pastime of farmers as the area is still in abundance or plentiful. Hunters know the exact season of the year when to go hunting for a sure catch. Hunters from neighboring sitios went hunting and it is always at this place that they meet, either the group that is already on the way home or still on the way for hunting, that when asked where they have built their ranch or where they stay for their rest, or where they are going, the answer is always inDulian, referring to the place where a Dulian tree is found, the landmark of the hunters, until after everybody called the place Dulian


It is bounded on the north by Bunguiao, on the east by Bolong and Lubigan, on the north by Quiniput and on the west by Zamboanga del Norte.
