History of Bukidnon

The Province of Bukidnon is a landlocked province, located at the centre of Mindanao Island, the southern part of the Philippines.

Bukidnon became part of Misamis province as a municipality in 1850. The whole area was then called Malaybalay (meaning "few houses") and the people were known as Bukidnons (meaning "mountain people").

The Philippine commission headed by commissioner Dean C. Worcester, Secretary of Interior and a member of the Philippine Commission proposed the separation of Bukidnon from Misamis Province.

Act No. 2408, that took effect on September 1st 1914 created Bukidnon as a province with the creation of the Department of Mindano and Sulu. Finally, on March 10th 1917, the province of Bukidnon was created under Act 2711.
