Francisco Dagohoy, (born Francisco Sendrijas) was a Boholano who holds the distinction of having initiated the longest revolt in Philippine history, the Dagohoy Rebellion. This rebellion against the Spanish colonial government took place on the island of Bohol from 1744 to 1828, roughly 85 years.
Little is known of Francisco Dagohoy's lifestyle before the rebellion, or even his early life. The only information known is that his real name was Francisco Sendrijas and he was born in 1724, and that he was a native of Brgy. Cambitoon, Inabanga, Bohol. He was also cabeza de barangay, or one of the barangay captains of the town.
The Dagohoy Rebellion (1744–1828)
The Dagohoy Rebellion was one of two significant revolts that occurred in Bohol during the Spanish Era. The other was the Tamblot Uprising in 1621 led by Tamblot, a babaylan or native priest from Bohol which was basically a religious conflict.
Dagohoy is acknowledged in Philippine history as the initiator of the longest insurrection on record. His revolt lasted 85 years (1744–1828).
A historical marker was placed on Dagohoy's grave in the mountains of Danao, Bohol. The Dagohoy Marker in Magtangtang, Danao, 92 km (57 mi) from Tagbilaran, was placed by the Philippine Historical Commission.
The Dagohoy Memorial National High School in Dagohoy, Bohol is named in his honor.
