BAE TARHATA ALONTO-LUCMAN
first Muslim lady governor of Lanao del Sur
Princess Tarhata "Tata" Alonto Lucman is the first Muslim lady governor of Lanao del Sur, appointed in 1971. She is a member of one of the royal families of Maranao, she fought the Martial Rule of the deposed President Marcos. Known as Tata, she is better known as a rido (clan conflict) settler, noted in a TIME magazine article for helping the release of kidnapped nuns in Marawi City in 1986. From 2001, she has been leading the Muslim-dominated province of Lanao del Sur, the Autonomous Regional Government in Muslim Mindanao.
Born into royalty among Ramain’s Sultanates, Tata as a girl-child looked up to other pioneering Moro ladies like Princess Tarhata Kiram and Dayang Dayang Piandao of Sulu who were able to get educated and travel abroad and to the capital. Within her one year of schooling in her hometown, she was accelerated to grade 4 at the tender age of 6 years old.
The only English-speaking among the household, she acted as translator at the busy home of her father, Alauya Alonto , who was a religious leader and politician. Tata was reared in the world of politics. She assisted her father, who was “no read, no write” in his travels to Manila. This would be her training ground in the man’s world. Constantly defying rules, Tata also didn’t want to marry someone not her choice. She was constantly engaged by her family to men from Maranao buena pamilia , but she would break the betrothals . She would find that the constant visitor, mentor at her home would be interested in her. She soon married Sultan Al-Rashid Lucman.
AIMAN CAIRODEN PANGANDA O MRANAO
MSU's First Muslim Summa cum Laude
Aiman Cairoden, son of a poor Maranaw widow, just wanted to have a college diploma so he can have a decent job and help send his five siblings to school.
Cairoden did not just receive a college diploma on Thursday (April 4), but also brought honor and fame to his home-province of Lanao del Sur for graduating summa cum laude from the state-run Mindanao State University's (MSU) 2013 Bachelor of Science in Biology class.
He is the first ever Moro student to achieve such feat since the creation of the University in 1961.
The MSU is the biggest government-owned university in Mindanao.
Cairoden, son of a Maranaw driver who died in a car accident two years ago, is an ethnic Maranaw from the first district of Lanao del Sur.
Since the university was created in 1961, all of its summa cum laude graduates were non-Muslims, mostly Visayans.
Cairoden’s mother and siblings wept as he delivered his valedictory address before 1,926 graduates at the Dimaporo Gymnasium inside the MSU campus.
Cairoden was known in the MSU campus as a studious and frugal student, who spent his money wisely.
He has many Muslim and Christian friends from whom he borrowed science text books.
relatives said Cairoden is still uncertain if he would proceed to study medicine or immediately look for a job so he can help send his younger siblings to school.
SPEECH OF SULTAN KUDARAT
What have you done? Do you realize what subjection would reduce you to? A toilsome slavery under the Spaniards! Turn your eyes to the subject nations and look at the misery to which such glorious nation had been reduced to, look at the Tagalog and Visayan: Are you better than they? Do you think that the Spaniards consider you of better stuff? Have you not seen the Spaniards trample them under their feet? Do you not see everyday how they are obliged to work at the oars and the factories with all their rigors? Can you tolerate anyone with little Spanish blood to beat you up and grasp the fruits of your labor? Allow your selves to be subjects (today) and tomorrow you will be at the oars; I, at least will be a pilot, the biggest favor they will allow a chief. Do not let their sweet words deceive you; their promises facilities their deceits, which little by little, enable them to control everything, reflect on how even minor promises to the chief of other nations were not honored until they become master of them all, see now what is being done to these chief and how they are being led by rod.

LEGENDARY MARANAO HERO
AMAI PAKPAK (DATU AKADIR)
A fearless Maranao warrior, Amai Pakpak, also known as Datu Akadir, born in Buadi sa Kayo, lived and died for the cause of Muslim freedom. He was famous for his heroic military exploits against the Spaniards, particularly in his defense of the legendary Kota Marahui (Marawi), the fortification made of earth and stone, which he had built. The Kota served as a bulwark against the Spanish invasions of 1891 and 1895.
Today, Kota Marahui is now known as Camp Amai Pakpak. The nearest landmark, located several meters away, is the Agus 2 hydraulic plant since 1650, when the Maranaos routed the Spanish expeditionary forces sent by Governor Corcuera, Lake Lanao had been free of foreign intrusion. It was not until 1891 that the Spaniards sent another invading force to try to capture the lake area. Personally led by Governor-General Valeriano Weyler, the campaign, begun in April, aimed to establish military strongholds in key points over Lanao and Cotabato. To carry this out, Weyler organized more than a thousand troops who were transported to Iligan Bay by four ships packed with military supplies. The main objective was Kota Marahui, which had been heavily fortified by cannons and guns, the Muslim warriors manning them ready to sacrifice their lives.
On August 19, Marahui fell, but the following day, Amai Pakpak and his forces reconsolidated and launched a fierce counterattack, proving that despite Marahui’s loss, the rest of Lanao was not about to give up. On August 21, 1891, the Spaniards launched a two-pronged attack. They bombarded the fort, overwhelming its defenders. Both sides sustained heavy casualties, though Amai Pakpak and his men who survived the onslaught eluded capture by retreating into the lake settlements. There, they regrouped. The Spaniards did not savor their initial victory for long. Three days later, the Muslims were back a bigger and more formidable force that compelled them to withdraw in their own redoubts in North Lanao.
Henceforth, the Muslims regularly staged lightning raids, in small units, against enemy settlements in southern Misamis Oriental and Iligan. This went on for four years. In time, the colonial government decided that if the stalemate were to end and the Muslim settlements around Lake Lanao subdued, the campaign on land should be bolstered by naval support a strategy that had found success elsewhere in Mindanao. Thus, a fleet of four steel-armed light gunboats was sent to the lake within a period of one year, from 1894 to

BRIEF HIGHLIGHTS OF SULTAN DIMAPORO’S LIFE
AND PUBUC SERVICE
A scion of many principalities in Lanao, Mohamad Ali Dimaporo was born on June 15, 1918 in the Sultanate of Binidayan to Sultan Dimaporo and Bai Potre Maamor Borngao, a royal couple variably descended from founding Ancestor Balindong and Ancestor Maruhom.
Starting in 1928, Ali as he is lovingly called, went through grade schools in Binidayan, Camp Keithley, and Ganassi. He attended secondary education in Lumbatan, but completed the course it the Lanao High School in Dansalan (Marawi City) in 1938.
He finished the pre-Law course at the University of the Philippines, but while pursuing regular law at UP. and later at Far Eastern University, World War II spread to the Philippines in 1941 which sent him to the battlefield as an ROTC reserved officer.
With the rank. Lieutenant, he was assigned to the defense command of USAFFEE Brig. Gen. Guy 0. Fort which fiercely resisted the Japanese invasion of the L,anao Military Sector in 1942 before the surrender.
Along with other Maranao officers and volunteer sultans and datus, Dimaporo helped General Fort organize the Bolo Battalion which became the first nucleus of the Mindanao Guerrilla Movement (l942-1945) that resisted the dark days of Japanese Occupation before. Gen. Douglas Macarthur returned for the liberation of the Philippines. Dimaporo directly commanded a guerrilla unit which annihilated a struggling Japanese garrison at Fort Corcuera in Malabang in 1945.
In 1949, ex-Army Officer Dimaporo was elected Congressman of the then undivided Lanao. After the division of the province, he was twice elected Governor of Lanao del Norte in 1959 and 1963, respectively. In 1969, he left the governorship and was elected Congressman of the same province.
During the inception of Martial Law, he left the public service to manage his private business enterprises. But in 1976, he was appointed Governor of Lanao del Sur and, later, concurrently a member of the Mindanao State University Board of Regents. While maintaining the governorship, he held concurrently the posts of Officer-in-Charge (now Acting President) of the State University and Chairman of the defunct Provisional Government of Southern Philippines.
During the 1980 elections he was regularly elected-as Governor of Lanao del Sur. At this height of the national government’s trust in his leadership, he is concurrently Acting President of MSU and a member of the National Executive Committee—all positions of great responsibilities and honor
During the 1986 elections he was regularly elected Congressman of Lanao del sur II and completely finished his three consecutive term. Ali Dimaporo was died on 2003…..
Based on the account of Governor Dimaporo’s boyhood classmate, Dr. Mamitua Saber, retold by Atty. Guiing Mamondiong, Provincial Board Member.
ALI DIMAPORO'S FAMILY
COTABATO CITY, April 22, 2004 (STAR) By John Unson — Veteran Muslim politician Mohammad Ali Dimaporo died of old age at the Philippine Heart Center in Quezon City at dawn yesterday.
Muslim communities across Mindanao, where Dimaporo was one of the most feared warlords, mourned his death.
Because he had no birth certificate, Dimaporo was estimated to be in his mid-90s.
The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) will observe a week-long mourning period to give "courtesy, respect and recognition" to Dimaporo.
"He may be gone but his works and sacrifices for the Maranao people and Muslims in other parts of the ARMM will be remembered as a legacy," Gov. Parouk Hussin said in a statement.
After fighting the Japanese as a guerrilla leader during World War II, Dimaporo emerged as one of Mindanao’s most powerful politicians.
He became a provincial governor, congressman, university president and ally of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
According to G. Carter Bentley, a specialist in Marawi politics, the "three G’s of Philippine politics, guns, goons and gold, swirl around him with manic abandon."
"In many ways, he is an anomaly. He is a Muslim who reached the highest levels of power within the Philippine government while the Muslim minority and that government were at war," Bentley wrote in "An Anarchy of Families," a book on the Philippines’ political dynasties.
"He is a man of relatively modest origins who attained an extremely high position among the Maranao hereditary nobility. Many find him outrageous, even laughable, but he commands respect because, in the desperately competitive world of Maranao (and of Philippine) politics, he wins. His was a political dynasty only one generation deep, but he is already laying the groundwork to extend it into the future."
Dimaporo’s remains will be brought back today for burial in his hometown of Binidayan, Lanao del Sur via the Cagayan de Oro airport. On hand will be his family and close relatives led by his son Rep. Abdullah Dimaporo of the second district of Lanao del Norte and wife, Gov. Imelda Dimaporo, and cousin Motalib Dimaporo, mayor of Sultan Naga Dimaporo town.
The more than 500-vehicle convoy will escort the remains to his hometown where the body will be buried before sunset today in accordance with Muslim tradition.
The eldest of eight children, Dimaporo was born on June 15, 1918, to Datu Dimaporo Marahom and Potri-Maamor Borngao Marahom in Binidayan, a small town south of LakeLanao in Lanao del Sur. His father was the sultan of Binidayan but the title later went to a cousin.
But it was Dimaporo’s grandparents who largely raised him.
After graduating from high school in Dansalan in 1938, he took up law at the University of the Philippines. During his second year there, a star student was arrested for murder while preparing for the Bar.
That student’s impassioned defense before the Supreme Court that led to his acquittal captured the imagination of the nation and his fellow law students, including Dimaporo.
That student was Ferdinand Marcos, of whom Dimaporo would later become a staunch political ally.
World War II broke out and Dimaporo was drafted into the Philippine Army. After the surrender of US forces in the Philippines, Dimaporo was interned in May 1942 in a prisoner-of-war camp.
He was released in July after promising the Japanese occupiers that he would help pacify the Maranao populace. While Dimaporo helped in the pacification, he secretly aided guerrillas, providing weapons and supplies.
In June 1944 — four months before US forces landed in Leyte — Dimaporo led a guerrilla force and openly resisted the Japanese in a war of hit-and-run until US troops arrived in the province in 1945. By then, the whole place was in guerrilla hands.
Dimaporo entered the political arena after World War II. "Wartime service in the resistance helped further many political careers in the postwar period," Bentley wrote.
Following Philippine independence in 1946, Dimaporo was part of the wave of Muslims being brought into the electoral process for the first time when national party leaders were seeking prospective Muslim candidates.
Dimaporo joined the Liberal Party and was elected congressman, representing Lanao, which was then a single province.
In 1953, Dimaporo ran for re-election but lost. He claimed that the military in the province — which was loyal to then defense secretary Ramon Magsaysay, the Nacionalista Party’s presidential candidate — interfered in the polls.
Dimaporo protested the election results and was later declared winner by the House Electoral Tribunal — but with only six months left in his term.
In 1957, he lost again and Dimaporo retired to his farms in Karomatan, intending to make money by growing cassava.
But the political landscape changed dramatically in 1959 when the province was divided into predominantly Muslim Lanao del Sur and predominantly Christian Lanao del Norte.
In the local elections that year, Dimaporo ran for governor of Lanao del Norte under the LP banner but he was not expected to win.
Dimaporo had several factors going against him.
He was up against the province’s powerful Lluch clan. "Only two of the 19 municipal mayors endorsed him. He lacked the degree of descent rank that would have solidified a Maranao following, and he was not politically wealthy," Bentley wrote.
Dimaporo said he decided not to run in Lanao del Sur because that meant going up against the Alonto-Lucman clan, which had "complete political hegemony" there.
However, the Lluch clan had made many important enemies including a few powerful families, with whom Dimaporo drew support. He won by a mere 275 votes.
"In this and subsequent elections, Dimaporo displayed his acumen as a political organizer, his almost uncanny ability to turn an apparent weak position into a winning one," according to Bentley. Loyalist
Dimaporo ran for Congress in the 1965 general elections, still with the LP. It was the year he would seal his ties with Ferdinand Marcos.
Being a loyal party member, he supported the incumbent President Diosdado Macapagal, President Arroyo’s father.
But he actually wanted Marcos, who had jumped ship and joined the Nacionalista Party, to win.
During Marcos’ visit to IliganCity, Dimaporo’s wife went into labor and Marcos went with him to the hospital, and Dimaporo named his son Ferdinand Marcos Dimaporo.
He earned Marcos’ favor later by reportedly refusing petitions from LP emissaries to rig the vote and make it appear that Macapagal won overwhelmingly in the province. Marcos won by a sizable margin as a result.
In 1966, Dimaporo solidified his ties with Marcos when news broke that military officers had liquidated several dozen Muslim recruits into a secret army unit.
The so-called "Jabidah Massacre" galvanized Muslim opposition against the government but Dimaporo — almost alone among Muslim leaders — stood by Marcos.
"In this crisis, Dimaporo’s willingness to subordinate his Muslim identity to personal and party loyalty earned him Marcos’s gratitude," Bentley wrote.
In 1969, Dimaporo was re-elected. By then, the hotly contested polls unveiled signs of sectarian violence in the Lanao provinces, with rival politicians, including Dimaporo, maintaining private armies.
Dimaporo reportedly kept a 300-strong force, nicknamed the "Barracudas." Malacaٌang was alarmed because the violence could ignite a sectarian war engulfing Mindanao.
In 1976, the height of martial law, Marcos appointed Dimaporo provincial governor of Lanao del Sur, giving him what he could not win in elections.
A few months later he was made president of MindanaoStateUniversity, whose budget was bloated and money went allegedly to his pockets. Dimaporo left MSU in 1986 after the fall of the Marcos dictatorship and was replaced as governor by the new Corazon Aquino administration.
Despite his warlord image, Dimaporo "seemed to have come through the trauma of Marcos’s fall remarkably unscathed," Bentley said.
"According to Maranao standards, his behavior tends to be coarse, more typical of a commoner than of the aristocrat he claims to be," Bentley wrote. "But he has repeatedly shown a subtlety in political maneuvering unmatched in the fiercely competitive arena of Maranao politics."

The Sarimanok is a legendary bird of the Maranao people who originate from Mindanao, a major island in the Philippines. It comes from the words "sari" and "manok." "Sari" means cloth or garment, which is generally of assorted colors. Manòk is a Philippine word for chicken.
It is the legendary bird that has become a ubiquitous symbol of Maranao art. It is depicted as a fowl with colorful wings and feathered tail, holding a fish on its beak or talons. The head is profusely decorated with scroll, leaf, and spiral motifs. It is said to be a symbol of good fortune
The Sarimanok is derived from a totem bird of the Maranao people, called Itotoro. According to the Maranao people, the Itotoro is a medium to the spirit world via its unseen twin spirit bird called Inikadowa.
