History

During the early 50’s, some people migrated into the place which was a wilderness, full of wild pigs, wild chickens, deer’s and birds. The place was formerly a dominion of Datu Tablo and Apo Salinda Gay under the Native traditions. Because of the friendly relations of the early migrants, land were given to them for free or in gratitude or in exchange of items.

The name of the place was derived from the rich Maribulan river, from Blaan word “Mal Bulan” which means shiny creature usually prayed upon for bountiful harvest and good fortune. Others say Maribulan is kind of tree which grows along riverbanks during those times.

In 1952, Maribulan became barrio of the Municipality of Dadiangas (now General Santos City). The late Ben Tobias was appointed the first Barrio Lieutenant. It was trough Mr. Honorio Sichon donated two hectares as barangay site and Mr. Franciso Laiz donated land for school site.

Sometime in August, 1989 upon suggestion of the residents headed by Municipal Kgd. Salvador Cabradilla, Sr., the Barangay Council approved a motion for celebration of the first of its kind in Barangay Maribulan, Municipality of Alabel, South Cotabato (now Sarangani Province).
