A Glimpse of Barangay Biyoy

This place was rich in trees and wildlife creatures like crocodiles, fishes, fresh waters and the like. Along the riverbanks is a perfect trim of a tress that can be bent without breaking that is called by the Bugkalots who were the early settlers as “Bioy“. The forest was also abundant of rattan which the Ifugaos called “Uwoy“. In the late years, there were more migrants after the Ifugaos, and called this place as “Biyoy” combining “Bioy” and “Uwoy“. However, the place is still considered as a Sitio of Barangay Kakiduguen. It was on January 20, 1974 when Biyoy was declared an independent barangay.
