DATU ALI

Known as Raja Buayan, he was the ruler of the Upper Valley of Cotobato and was the acknowledged leader of the Maguindanaos in the 1900s.

He led the revolt against the American government from 1903 to 1906, first fighting the enemy in open battle, and then using guerrilla warfare.

His brother Djimbagan was captured at fort Serenaya and then used as hostage to force him to surrender, but he did not yield. He continued to fight until October, when in the Battle of Simpetan, he and most of his men were killed. In another battle later that month, three of his sons were also killed.
