People recalled that during the Spanish time the banditry is rampant. They attacked the barrio frequently, took some livelihood of the barrio people, other killed and some women were abused. To pre-empt the problem the Cabesa de Barangay forgather their constituents and lead them to install bamboo Palisades or Talutog around the barrio, a protection for the bandit attack. Since then, every time the bandit attack they suffered a number of casualties and heavy losses, others withdrew. Hereafter, the bandits never attack again. Always winning the battle its name derived from Gindag-an heretofore known as Indag-an.
