Etymology[ edit ] The region's name is derived from its Bagobo origins. The Bagobos were indigenous to the Philippines.
The word davao came from the phonetic blending of three Bagobo subgroups' names for the Davao Rivera major waterway emptying into the Davao Gulf near the city. To the Obos, davah also means "a place beyond the high grounds" alluding to settlements at the mouth of the river surrounded by high, rolling hills.
Nearby, a settlement was situated on the banks of the river, ruled by a Muslim Bagobo chieftain named Datu Bago. Being the strongest chieftain in the region, Datu Bago imposed heavy tribute on the Mandaya tribes nearby, therefore also making him the most loathed chieftain in the region.

Intent on taking the settlement for Spain, he and his men accordingly assaulted it, but the Bagobo natives fiercely resisted the attacks, which resulted in his Samal Mandaya allies to retreat and not fight again.
Thus, a three-month long inconclusive battle for the possession of the settlement ensued which was only decided when an infantry company which sailed its way via warships from Zamboanga came in as reinforcements, thus ensuring the takeover of the settlement and its surroundings by the Spaniards while the defeated Bagobos fled further inland.
