Inabanga

Inabanga River of the town of Inabanga was once infested with crocodiles. Every year, since time beyond recall a human life was lost through attack by a crocodile. The people being superstitious in nature believed that the yearly lost of life was a rental (abang) for the use of the river. Hence the name Inabangan River (Rented River). The Spaniards, however, met difficulty in pronouncing Inabangan, consequently called the place Inabanga. And so it has been to this day.

The people are engaged in trading, fishing, farming and nipa thatch-making. The women are weavers of saguran, mats, blankets, hats, mats, bags and basket.
