   Historical Profile


The natives of Lapuyan belong to the Subanen tribe of Region IX .They are peace loving people who prefer to live along riverbanks up-stream in order to avoid the aggressive Moros who live along the coast. The word Subanen is derived from the word suba, or up-stream riverbank dwellers, because contracts with them can only be possible when one would go up-stream. These high land dwellers are also called getaw bentud.
