The original people of Zamboanga were the Subanen of Indonesian origin at about 2,000 to 6,000 years ago. They were coastal people who believe in the spirit of their ancestors and the forces of nature. When the Muslims arrived they were pushed into the hinterlands and live along riverbanks. Thus, the name "Suba," meaning people of the river.
