History

The B’laan tribe were the pioneering inhabitants of the area. Due to incessant flooding in the area, the natives called the place “Amlok” which means “kusog nga baha” (heavy flooding). A local Muslim leader, Datu Mamundas Mamalumpong advocates to rename Amlok to Domolok.

The first Christian migrants came to the area were the families of Mamerto Reyes, Pedro Omadle, Eugenio Carillo and Regino Agan.

The political history and transition of power in barangay was characterized by successions. The first Teniente de Barrio of Domolok was Eugenio Carillo, Sr., he was appointed in 1954. After two years, Sagad Linog succeeded him. Pedro Omadle, Isko Carillo, Cristino Balaga served as Teniente del Barrio of the area for a span of three years (a one-year succession).

In 1960, Barangay captaincy was created making Junid Linog as first elective Barangay captain serving Domolok from 1960 to 1972. Regino Agan, succeeded him in 1973, followed by Hussien Dambong in 1982. The longest serving captain of Domolok was Edmon Dambong, he served for a span of 18 years divided in 4 terms. The current Barangay captain of Domolok was Elmer I. Alaiden, (2010-present).

The role of the youth was vital. The first SK Chairman was Reynaldo Sangarios, followed by Janeth C. Quilaton (1992), Ramelito B. Betonio (1996) and Jerome T. Villaflor (2007). Annalou Q. Abear was the incumbent SK Chairman of Domolok.

The majority group of area were mostly Christian by faith (Cebuano, Ilonggo and Ilocano) and 40% were identified themselves Muslims and B’laan.

In a distant past, Domolok was identified as Black shirt and Ilaga infested area, a paramilitary group in Southern Mindanao, robbery of property and livestock, instigated social disorientation in Domolok. Series of droughts and other natural abnormalities such as floods were also manifested in 1950’s to 70’s in the area.
