Barangay Inanama is divided into 4 'puroks': Bliss, Santiago, Pantoc, and Dinio. It originated from the story of widows who had lost their husbands and were forced to moved out to their safety. They find shelter during World War II in uncultivated land areas in Llanera. In order to survive they patiently farmed the rough grazing land and barely removed big rocks, cultivated the soil to produce food for their children. They were the first architects to build passable road in the village. The village people often described them Ina na Ama Pa, which means "widows solely acting as mother and father to their children." Throughout the years the small village was later on officially named Barangay Inanama as to commemorate the hardworking widows.[citation needed]
