Barangay Mantuyong


Mantuyong. The very small community of Mantuyong derived its name from a brilliant and active headsman called Mantu that was a very old title for a man who was “intelligent and progressive”. Mantu and the original families of the area lived in huts along a robust steam. It was a rich estuarine environment of mangroved swamps. Despite a native intelligence, Mantu dreamt of attending schools to gain more knowledge to benefit his flock. This was before Mandaue had any schools and his dream remained unfulfilled.

Mantu’s altruism made him like a father to everyone young and old. As proof of this high regard and as a sign of respect, the people conferred on him a very old Cebuano honorific of “Uyong”. And as final tribute after his death the place became “Mantuyong” coined from “Mantu” and “Uyong”.
