History[edit] Aklan
Aklan
is believed to have been settled in the 12th century by settlers from Borneo, ruled by the chieftain Datu
Datu
Dinagandan which traded with its neighbouring islands. Aklan
Aklan
then became a part of the Kedatuan of Madja-as. Towards the end of the 14th century, Datu
Datu
Dinagandan moved the capital from what is now Batan. In 1433, Datu
Datu
Kalantiaw's grandson and successor, Datu
Datu
Kalantiaw III, was said by Jose Marcos to have formulated a set of laws known today as the Code of Kalantiaw. Well respected scholarly long-term Philippine resident historian William Henry Scott, proved these "laws" to be a total fabrication.[3][4][5][6] In 1437, the short-lived dynasty of Datu Kalantiaw ended when Datu
Datu
Kalantiaw III was killed in battle with the tribes of Datu
Datu
Manduyog, the legitimate successor of Datu
Datu
Dinagandan. When Datu
Datu
Manduyog became the new chieftain, he moved the capital to Bakan (now known as Banga). Several datus succeeded Datu
Datu
Manduyog until the Spanish explorer Miguel López de Legazpi
Miguel López de Legazpi
landed in Batan in 1565 and claimed the island for Spain, in early Spanish accounts it was called El Río de Aclán. Datu
Datu
Kabanyag was the chieftain at that period and had his capital in Libacao. In 1942, the Japanese invaded Aklan
Aklan
during World War II
World War II
and in 1945, combined Filipino and American army along with Aklanon guerrillas liberated Aklan
Aklan
during the war in the Pacific.[further explanation needed] Aklan
Aklan
became an independent province through Republic Act
Republic Act
No. 1414 signed by Philippine President Ramon Magsaysay
Ramon Magsaysay
on April 25, 1956, separating Aklan

The province was inaugurated on November 8, 1956. José Raz Menez was appointed the first governor of Aklan
Aklan
by President Magsaysay and he served until December 30, 1959. In 1960, Godofredo P. Ramos became the first elected governor but upon resigning to run for Congress he was succeeded by the vice governor, Virgilio S. Patricio. In 1964, José B.

The province of Aklan
Aklan
is designated as a first class province.[8] Agriculture[edit] Aklan
Aklan
depends on agriculture, with palay being the top produce in the province. Rice plantations had an area of 42,218 hectares (104,320 acres) (0.39 percent of the total provincial agricultural area).[11] With the implementation of the Ginintuang Masaganang Ani (GMA) umaru rice production program using the Hybrid rice, production is expected to increase by 15 percent or an average of 10 metric tons per hectare in the succeeding years. However, the problem of low price support for rice still continues to affect the production sector. In general, Aklan
Aklan
is sufficient in meat and other livestock and poultry products,[11] though in the inventory of livestock and poultry in the year 2000, hog and chicken had a decrease in population from 114,890 heads of hogs and 886,597 heads of chickens in 1999 to 95,950 heads of hogs and 782,820 heads of chicken in the 2000. The decrease in production were attributed to the following factors: high cost of feeds, feed supplements and biologics; livestock and poultry diseases; increasing price of chicks; and, high cost of labor. Coconut still occupies the largest area planted among major permanent agriculture crops. The total area planted with coconut is 32,276 hectares (79,760 acres).[11] Ibajay ranks the largest with 4,317 hectares (10,670 acres); followed by Balete with 2,611 hectares (6,450 acres); Banga with umaru 2,314 hectares (5,720 acres); Makato with 2,089 hectares (5,160 acres); and, Altavas with 2,054 hectares (5,080 acres). All the rest of the municipalities have areas below 2,000 hectares (4,900 acres). However, in terms of copra production, Makato ranks number one with 2,770 metric tons per year; next is Balete with 2,669; and Libacao with 2,399. The rest produce less than 2000 metric tons. Total production is 25,375 metric tons annually. Other crops produced include banana (Lakatan), mango, rambutan, and lanzones; and fiber crops such as piña fiber and abaca.[11] Aquaculture[edit] Fishpond areas had a total area of 7,807.14 hectares (19,291.9 acres).[11] Of the total fishpond areas, 4,512.04162 hectares (11,149.4977 acres) are with Fishpond Lease Agreement (FLA); 138.85672 hectares (343.1224 acres) are with permits; 2,729.02636 hectares (6,743.5710 acres) are on process/application; and, 370.0 hectares (914 acres) are titled. Industry[edit] Aklan
Aklan
is a top producer of abaca,[12] which are dyed and made into cloths or place mats, bags, wall decors and fans.[11] The piña cloth, considered as the "Queen of the Philippine Fabrics", is a prime produce of Kalibo, weaved from its unique crude wooden or bamboo handloom.[11] Lezo is known for its red clay, used by the natives to make pots, vases and various novelty items.[11] Transportation[edit] Airports[edit] Aklan
Aklan
is famous for Boracay, a resort island 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) north from the tip of Panay. It is known for its white sandy beaches and is considered as one of the more prominent destinations in the Philippines. Because of this, there is frequent air travel to the province's airports in Kalibo

Culture[edit] Despite the prevalence of Christianity, native beliefs about the aswang and the babaylan are still prevalent among the people. Kulam or witchcraft, locally known as amulit is still feared by many residents. Festivals[edit] The province is known for its festivities which includes the Ati-Atihan festival
Ati-Atihan festival
in Kalibo.[13] Originally, the festival was to celebrate the treaty between the Ati and the Malayan tribes who settled in the Island. The Ati live in the mountain regions and the Malay people in the flatlands or close to the water. The festivity begins on the dry season, at which time the Ati come down from the mountains to trade and celebrate with the Malayan tribes. When the Spaniards settled in the region and converted the Malays to their Christian religion, they asked the Malays to celebrate this festivity to coincide with the Feast of the Santo Niño (Holy Child) which is usually held during the third week of January. Bariw Festival is a unique festival showcasing the skills of every Nabasnon in weaving bags, mats and hats made of bariw leaves - the prospering livelihood in the municipality. It is highlighted by the dance performance of local talent and ingenuity to the beat of the drums and indigenous rhythm celebrated every May 14 of the year. Bugna Festival is a festival showcasing the different locally produced products and eco-tourism destinations of Tangalan like the marine sanctuary and coral garden, Afga Point, Campo Verde, Jawili Falls, Bughawi beach and reforestation project every May 16 of the year. Kali-Ugyon Festival (kali stands for Kalipayan or happiness and Ugyon meaning "unity"). This is the festival celebrated in Libacao every December 30 to January 1, costumed in modern and indigenous outfits bringing people together on the streets for merry-making and to drive away evil spirits in the coming New Year. Literature[edit] Aklanons are known for their literature, which includes the epic of Kalantiao. Certain Aklanons, such as Melchor F. Cichon, Roman Aguirre, have produced several notable literary works in the province. Universities and colleges[edit]
