Tribu Ilonganon, founded in 1984, is the pride of Jalandoni Memorial National High School (formerly
known as Lapuz High School).
The term “tribu” comes from the Latin word “tribus” which means "masses” and “ilonganon” from the Hiligaynon word "Ilonggo"; which is derived from the Spanish term "irong-irong", referring to the Filipino word for nose "ilong"; and an islet in the Batiano River in Panay.
The term “Ilonggo” is considered to define a specific group of people whose ethnic origins are in the provinces of Iloilo, Guimaras, and Panay.
