Barangay Cawayanan in the Oyungan Valley is next to Barangay Igbugo. It is geographically bounded on the North of Barangay Bacolod, by Barangay Igdalaquit on the East and by Barangay Igcabitoon on the West. It is considered one of the smallest barangay because it ranks only 97 out of 119 barangays of the Municipality of Miagao. But, political, economical and educational capabilities, Cawayanan could not be set aside.
Cawayanan for a long time ago was only a sitio of Barangay Igcabitoon before it became an independent and legal barangay in 1967.It was established separately, patiently with great and hard work by the late Barangay Captain Alberto Factes who also became a member of the Sangguniang Bayan. It got its name from the bamboo clumps, locally known as "kawayan", which grow abundantly at that time. Residents of the place derive their income from selling bamboo as building materials.
Barangay Cawayanan former heads were Bautista Navallasca, Encarnacion Navallasca and Francisco Factes as the Purok Presidents respectively from 1940-45, 1945-50, 1950-67.
From 1967, Barangay Cawayanan became an independent and legal barangay under the leadersip of Barangay Captain Alberto Factes. He sat for 20 years for service and thereafter followed by OIC Dioscoro Soliva as Barangay Captain from 1990-1992. From 1992- 1995, Punong Barangay Teodora Maestrecampo also served the barangay.
From 1995 up to August 14, 2002, Punong Barangay Noel Soliva serves the barangay. And from August 15, 2002 Punong Barangay Adolfo Factes together with his Kagawads serve the barangay up to the present.
