Tingguian elders lead project honoring guerilla forces
by Ma Teresa B. Beñas / PIA

LICUAN-BAAY, Abra – Tingguian elders led by the Abra Confederation of Tingguian Organizations (ACTO) and the municipal government recently spearheaded the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a historical landmark at Mt. Lamunan in Barangay Subagan in this town.

ACTO president Isidro Espiritu said the project gives credit to the Abrañean guerilla forces, who fought the Japanese forces during World War II.

“It is but fitting and appropriate to appreciate and relive the heroism of our ancestors who fought for the freedom of our land from foreign invasion,” Espiritu said.

Mt. Lamunan is famous to the uplands in Abra as the “Lamunan Ambush Site.” It is located in the tri-boundary of the municipalities of Daguioman, Malibcong, and Licuan-Baay in Abra and Balbalan in Kalinga.

The result of the research conducted earlier by the faculty and students of the Abra State Institute of Science and Technology led by Dr. Elsa D. Baguioan proved the validity of the claim by the local folk of the ambush and killing of many Japanese soldiers done by the Abrañean guerillas led by the popular American soldier named Cosing.

The late Lunes Colet of Baay, a member of the USA-PHIL guerilla forces, earlier attested to the truthfulness of the combat operation.

Licuan-Baay Mayor Alejo Domingo took the lead in the endeavor and provided all-out support to ACTO, which conceptualized and proposed the construction of the historical landmark.

The project is a collaborative effort of the National Historical Commission, the National Commission for Culture and Arts, the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office, the House of Representatives, the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples, and the Philippine Information Agency.

It is also supported by the local government units of Daguioman, Malibcong, and Licuan-Baay; the provincial government of Abra; and Balbalan of Kalinga.
