History

Originally, the natives named their place as “Mantangingi”, derived from the words “Manta”– a Muslim dress and, “Ngingi”– from a native crabs called “Bangibangi” which were found abundant along the shore specifically in the mangroves area.

During the Second World War, the Japanese invaded the Barangay Mantangingi that resulted to fearful experiences by the natives due to excessive cruelty of the Japanese soldiers. The Japanese occupation did not last long when the U.S. Allied Forces arrived to rescue the country from Japanese invaders. The U.s. Troops led by General Douglas Mc Arthur from western part of Panay Island landed at a certain area in Nueva Valencia here in the Province of Guimaras, as a target of simultaneous massive attack to corner the Japanese Forces in Buenavista. However, due to some hindrances, they landed halfway and docked behind the site of Barangay Mantangingi. The Americans found it difficult to pronounce the word “Mantangingi”, therefore, they changed the name into East Valencia which geographically, the opposite direction/location of Nueva Valencia.

From then on, it was acclaimed that the name “East Valencia” was introduced after the World War II in commemoration of the U.S. invasion in the Visayas.
