Did you ever wonder why CHamorus are so bound by obligations to family and friends? From christenings to weddings and funerals, CHamorus are constantly engaged in giving and receiving gifts to help each other out in times of need. Learn more about these cultural practices of reciprocity in a special noontime lecture with Guam historian and scholar, Dr. Anne Perez Hattori. Dr. Hattori earned a PhD in Pacific History in 1999 and an MA in Pacific Islands Studies in 1995 from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. She is currently a Professor of Pacific History in the University of Guam’s Humanities Division, College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and faculty in the graduate program in Micronesian Studies.

HITA Talk: Hayi hao? Perpetuating Our CHamoru Language, with Ann Marie Arceo, President, Department of CHamoru Affairs
In 2016, the United Nations declared 2019 as the Year of Indigenous Languages. As part of Såkkan CHamoru, the Guam Museum proudly welcomes Ann Marie Arceo, President of the Guam Department of CHamoru Affairs, to discuss the celebration of CHamoru language and the current status of CHamoru language learning, promotion and advocacy on Guam. President Arceo is a founder of Chief Huråo Academy, a nonprofit organization that works to address the needs of a community struggling to preserve their language. Their mission is to increase fluency and usage of CHamoru, the indigenous language of the Marianas. As the president of DCA, Arceo also will share her insights on CHamoru values and identity, and the goals she hopes to achieve in her new role.
