Women have always played a central role in CHamoru society, which is traditionally a matrilineal society. They are the source of family genealogy, as well as the preservers of culture. In celebration of Mother’s Day and in connection with the exhibition, “CHamoru Yu’: Perspective on CHamoru Identity,” the Guam Museum is proud to present “Mothering Guahan,” a film by Leiana San Agustin Naholowa’a. Exploring the changing roles of women and the power of mothers in CHamoru culture, “Mothering Guahan” weaves the voices of different generations of women and mothers to make up this powerful perspective on Chamoru feminine identity.
