Brief Origin of Barangay Name

According to stories by old folks, Gumatdang got its name from the word “Sha-shangan” meaning a place for drying meat. In the olden times, a wealthy man named Pacalso from Amlimay, Buguias, Benguet migrated and settled in Bua, Tuding. His main livelihood was raising cattle and he was able to raise many heads. Because of the huge number of his cows, he butchered some for a feast and distributed pieces of meat to the people of the community. His people would clean the surroundings for them to hang and dry the meat under the sun for future consumption. This was their means of preserving their beef/meat to avoid spoiling. Time passed by and Pacalso’s men, whenever they were asked where they are going, they would reply “undawak shi Sha-shangan (I’m going to “Sha-shangan”),” referring to the place where they hang and dry their meat. Due to varying pronunciations and connotations, they opted to adopt the contraction of “Sha-shangan” into “Kumashangak.” The place was then named “KUMASHANG” and eventually became GUMATDANG.
