Historical Background

When the Spaniards occupied Zamboanga, they usually went around to see different places.  One day, they met a tradesman who came from Luzon.  The tradesman accompanied by the Spaniards went sight-seeing around the place.  It was a rainy season that time and the soil seemed like clay, so it was slippery.  While they were walking, one of the Spaniards stumbled down.  He stood up and asked the trader for the name of the place.  He answered "putik", which meant mud.
