A Glimpse of Barangay Wangal

In the early period, “Wild Galiang” was very ample in this place and because the Ilongot were the first inhabitants, they called this place their dialect “Wangal” which means galiang. “Blankets” is also the meaning of the word in the Munhanglulo dialect who was the later inhabitants of the place. The word made them think that there are a lot of blankets in this place upon their settlement. Because of the two dialects, there were misunderstandings to the meaning, and since the word “Wangal” became popular, it was then traditionally adopted as the name of the place, and in 1967 when the area has declared a barangay of the town.
