BRIEF HISTORY OF JAMINDAN

The town of Jamindan has been under the rule of Spaniards for almost 3 centuries. The richness of its culture and traditions could be attributed to its past like any other towns in the island of Panay. The Spanish influence has literally been acculturated to the present system. It's people's warmth and hospitality and their afflictions in the past greatly affected the personality of the people and became the striking force towards making Jamindan on its present state.

The place got its name from a tree called "Hamindang" which grow abundantly in the community. This tree grows plentifully along the banks of the river during early days of history.

In the year 1744, Jamindan was made a Municipal District by then Governor Don Joaquin Dominguez. He then appointed Abao Dungon the native chieftain as the first Captain. Many distinguished leaders were reappointed after Dungon, but the most popular of them all was Kapitan Manuel Orocio who during his reign paved the way in making Jamindan into a municipality in the year 1804.
