History

During the past, the place was formerly known as “Salag” or the native called it as “Salag Daku”. It had a wider area when compared to “Salag Gamay”. It was a coastal area where there were abundant fishes and various marine products around the sea. One kind of fishes were called “Silag”. Residents of Salag Daku and its neighboring barangays usually went to shore for fishing Silag for their daily consumption and for sale. With the abundance of Silag fishes in the said place, it became an additional source of income of the residents. Hence, they named their place as “Salag”.

During the dawn of the 20th Century, there was a well-known family because of their generosity in the area. The father of the said family gave concerns to the residents especially to those who were oppressed. By that sense, people called him “Kapitan Ditoy”– an address given to a person who is well-loved and very much respected. Kapitan Ditoy made life of the residents in Salag Daku bearable, because he is always extending help to everybody. People even recalled his heroic deeds especially during the Japanese War. They also suggested to make a statue to honor their so called heroKapitan Ditoy or Canuto Zaldivar as his real name. Since then, the residents decided to change the name of their barangay from Salag Daku to Zaldivar, in honor of their local hero- Canuto Zaldivar.
