1. The Origin of Buguis
It was said that Buguis got its name from the word "Bugas", a native word for rice. Sometime in 1900, some American soldiers who patrolled the land of Benguet. One soldier came upon a woman who was pounding rice and inquired from her the name of the place. Immediately, the woman answered "bugas", thinking that the American was asking the name of what she was pounding. The American then listed the place as "Buguias".
2. The Origin of Death
Thousands of years ago, the people of Benguet were not capable of dying. Instead, they just grew older.
There were a lot of old men and women who could not work for their survival, so they relied on the younger people for help.
The young people hardly had time to tend to their farms because they were too busy taking care of the elders, and this angered them.
One day, the young people decided to take the elders to the jungle.
The wild animals followed each and every move of the old people, and eventually pounced on them and crushed them to death.
Although it was an unfortunate event for the elders, the incident served as a solution for the younger people.
From that time on, the young people would always bring the elderly to the jungle, leaving them as prey for the wild animals.
Eventually, the population of the old people decreased, allowing the younger ones to have more time for themselves and for their farms.
Kabunyan, the supreme god, was outraged upon learning about the young people's doings, and cursed them.
As a consequence, Kabunyan made death inevitable, making everyone vulnerable to the call of death.
