Etymology The original farmer-fishermen of the area, about 800 in number, were good at threshing rice after harvest. Hence they were referred to as "mga taga-giik," (Tagalog for "rice thresher") and the settlement as "pook ng mga taga-giik." Spanish friar Fray Alonso de Alvarado, together with conquistador Ruy López de Villalobos who crossed Pasig River to reach the city's present site in 1571, found "taga-giik" difficult to pronounce. "Tagui-ig" was later shortened to its current form "Taguig".[7] History Before the Spaniards
Spaniards
came, Taguig
Taguig
was a part of Namayan
Namayan
and Tondo ruled by Lakandula. There were also accounts that Chinese settlements were once present in the area as revealed by the recent archaeological diggings of various artifacts like cups, plates and other utensils, which bear Chinese characters. This was believed to have originated from China's Ming dynasty. Taguig
Taguig
was one of the earliest known territories to have been Christianized when the Spaniards
Spaniards
succeeded in subjugating mainland Luzon through the Legazpi expedition in 1571. Between the years 1582 and 1583, Taguig
Taguig
was part of the encomienda of Tondo headed by an alcalde mayor, Captain Vergara. It was in 1587 when Taguig
Taguig
was established as a separate "pueblo" (town) of the then province of Manila. Captain Juan Basi was its Kapitan from 1587 to 1588. According to records, Taguig
Taguig
had nine (9) barrios then namely, Bagumbayan, Bambang, Hagonoy, Palingon, Sta. Ana, Tipas, Tuktukan, Ususan, and Wawa. Records show that Tipas had once petitioned to become an independent town but was denied by the Spanish government. During that time, Taguig
Taguig
was accessible via the Pasig
Pasig
River, which was connected to two large bodies of water, the Manila
Manila
Bay and Laguna de Bay. The population then was estimated to be 800 tributes. The town produced more than enough rice for consumption but had less sugar cane to mill. The men lived through fishing while women wove cotton cloth and "sawali" from bamboo strips. The people of Taguig
Taguig
were known to have resisted both Spanish and American colonial rule. During that early period of Spanish colonization. Don Juan Basi, "Kapitan" of Taguig
Taguig
from 1587 to 1588, took part in the Tondo Conspiracy, an attempt to overthrow the Spanish government which failed. Basi was exiled for two years as punishment. When the Katipunan
Katipunan
was on its early years, many from Taguig
Taguig
became followers and later joined the uprising. The people of Taguig
Taguig
also joined the revolutionary government of General Emilio Aguinaldo on August 6, 1898. During the American occupation, they struggled against the forces of General Wheaton under the command of General Pio del Pilar. It was recorded that on February 6, 1898, Filipino forces including Taguig "revolutionarios" dislodged an American position in the hills of Taguig, now a portion of Pateros and Fort Bonifacio. They were defeated eventually by the Americans with superiority in the armaments and training. Taguig
Taguig
finally fell to the contingent of the First Washington Volunteer Infantry led by Col. Wholly. The defeat of the Filipinos after two years of struggle against the American forces subsequently subjected the Philippines
Philippines
to another system of governance. On August 14, 1898, United States
United States
occupied the islands and established a military government with General Wesley Meritt as the First Military Governor. He exercised legislative powers until September 1, 1900. At the start of American occupation, Taguig was proclaimed as an independent municipality with the promulgation of General Order No. 4 on March 29, 1900. The town was subsequently incorporated to the newly created province of Rizal
Rizal
when the Philippine Commission promulgated Act. No. 137 on June 11, 1901. On October 12, 1903, Taguig, Muntinlupa
Muntinlupa
and Pateros were merged by the virtue of Act. No. 942 with Pateros hosting the seat of the municipal government. The merger did not last long as a month later Muntinlupa was segregated from it and made part of Biñan
Biñan
when Act. No. 1008 was enacted on November 25, 1903. However it was returned to Taguig
Taguig
on March 22, 1905 with the promulgation Act. No. 1308. On February 29, 1908, Taguig
Taguig
was again declared an independent municipality through Executive Order No. 20. Eventually, Pateros separated from Taguig
Taguig
and both became independent municipalities of Rizal
Rizal
province on January 1, 1918. It was also during the American Colonial Period that the US government acquired a 25.78 km² property of Taguig
Taguig
for military purposes. This large piece of land, which had a TCT dated 1902, was turned into a camp that became known as Fort McKinley (named after William McKinley, 25th president of the U.S.). When the Japanese occupied the Philippines
Philippines
in 1942, Fort McKinley was taken over by the Japanese Imperial Army. They occupied the military camp until the end of the war in 1945. After the Philippines
Philippines
gained its political independence from the United States
United States
on July 4, 1946, the US surrendered the Republic of the Philippines
Philippines
all right of possession, jurisdiction, supervision and control over the Philippine territory except the use of the military bases. On May 14, 1949, Fort William McKinley
William McKinley
was turned over to the Philippine government by virtue of the US Embassy Note No. 0570. Fort McKinley was made the permanent headquarters of the Philippine Army in 1957 and was subsequently renamed Fort Bonifacio after the Father of the Philippine Revolution against Spain, Andres Bonifacio. The town's political subdivision was changed to barangays following the nationwide implementation of the Integrated Reorganization Plan (IRP) in the 1970s when the country was under Martial Law. The IRP has increased its subdivisions into 18 barangays, namely, Bagong Tanyag, Bagumbayan, Bambang, Calzada, Hagonoy, Ibayo-Tipas, Ligid-Tipas, Lower Bicutan, Maharlika, Napindan, Palingon, Signal Village, Sta. Ana, Tuktukan, Upper Bicutan, Ususan, Wawa, and Western Bicutan. In the year 2009, Taguig
Taguig
re-organized and re-arranged the barangays making a total of 28, the 10 added being Central Bicutan, Fort Bonifacio, South Daanghari, North Daanghari, San Miguel, New Lower Bicutan, South Signal,Katuparan, North Signal, Pinagsama
Pinagsama
and Tanyag. On November 7, 1975, Taguig
Taguig
was carved out from the province of Rizal
Rizal
to form the National Capital Region through Presidential Decree No. 824. Today, Taguig
Taguig
is still one of the 17 cities and municipalities that make up Metro Manila. In 1998, a bill was passed in Congress pushing for the cityhood of Taguig. The resulting plebiscite in April showed that the citizens were against cityhood. A recent petition to the Supreme Court sought a recount of the plebiscite and the Supreme Court on February 19, 2004 ordered the Commission on Elections to conduct a recount. The recount showed that the residents did want the municipality of Taguig
Taguig
to become a city (21,105 'yes' and 19,460 'no'). Subsequently, Taguig became a city on December 8, 2004. In 2008, the Taguig
Taguig
City council enacted City Ordinances Nos. 24-27, 57-61, 67-69, and 78, Series of 2008 which created 10 new barangays, carving them out from the initial 18 barangays. Hence, in December 2008, after a successful plebiscite, Taguig
Taguig
was politically subdivided into 28 barangays. (Reference: History of Taguig[8]) Demographics

have recently fought over the jurisdiction of Fort Bonifacio. This Philippine military base, most of which has been converted to a modern commercial and residential development area, lies in an ambiguous area. A portion of the base, including the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Heroes' Cemetery) and the Manila
Manila
American Cemetery and Memorial lies within Taguig, while the northern portion where the development center is now located used to be considered part of Makati, but is currently and permanently considered part of Taguig. A 2003 ruling by a judge in the Pasig

The district of Fort Bonifacio

On August 22, 2013, Taguig
Taguig
filed a Motion for Reconsideration before the Court of Appeal's Sixth Division affirming its claim on Fort Bonifacio.[17] "Taguig's claim has the backing of history—it precedes Makati
Makati
as a political and corporate entity by decades. Taguig's claim has the weight of official authority behind it—in statutes, in proclamations, in public documents—while Makati
Makati
can only rely on private writings and proclamations that expand the original terms of that which it sought to amend", part of the motion read. "Taguig's claim has been established by the numerous documentary and official documents, while Makati's has been one characterized by numerous legal maneuvers and overreliance on technicalities", the motion added. With the filing of the said Motion for Reconsideration, Taguig's jurisdiction forces itself over Fort Bonifacio. According to Taguig's legal department, jurisprudence and the rules of procedure in the country's justice system all say that the filing of a motion for reconsideration suspends the execution of a decision and puts it in limbo.[citation needed] Supreme Court's 2nd Decision On August 1, 2016, in a 27-page decision by the Second Division of the Supreme Court, the decision sought Makati
Makati
