I don’t care how you spell the word, but every proud Chamorro or Guamanian should “Bota Fino’ Chamorro” this election. Vote for candidates who are serious about preserving and protecting the Chamorro language.

This year marked the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in Guam. Depending on what you believe and know about history it was either a reoccupation or a liberation.

Hafa Adai! Your tumblr came up on my dash under "suggested blogs" and I have to compliment you on it. As a chamorro who was born and raised in the states and never set foot on Guam, your page is really steeped in the culture and I love it. Thanks for such an awesome blog! :]

Si Yu’us Ma’ase for your comment and I’m glad that you enjoy my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions about Guam or Chamorro language/culture.

This Fall semester will be filled with more exciting activities aimed at revitalizing the Chamorro language. A Chamorro language lecture series, a Chamorro language forum, standardized curriculum piloting, and hopefully something geeky for those who want to play Magic the Gathering in Chamorro.
