The Guam Museum is a fun place for Moms and Kids to spend time together. Join us for a special Mother’s Day Ha’anen Familia in our Museum garden and learn about how plants benefit our culture and our island. Moms and kids will be making planters out of household materials and transferring seedlings into soil so they can learn to nurture their seedlings at home with a “Mother’s love.” This is an outdoor activity so be prepared to get a little dirty.
Space is limited so call the Museum at 989-4455 to reserve a spot.

HITA Special:
Guam and the 1887 Philippine Exposition in Madrid, Spain
Presenters: Carlos Madrid and Roman Delacruz
Date: Saturday, May 11, 2019
Time: 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM
Location: Indoor Theater
In 1887, the Spanish territories, including the Mariana Islands, participated in a cultural exposition in Madrid, Spain. Many artifacts and artworks from the Philippines, the Marianas and the Caroline Islands were donated and sent to Spain and became, for many Europeans, their first introduction to the indigenous cultures and peoples of Micronesia. In this HITA presentation, Dr. Carlos Madrid Álvarez-Piñer, associate professor of Spanish Pacific history within the Micronesian Area Research Center (MARC), will discuss the objects from Guam that were part of the Expo and remain in Madrid’s national museum of anthropology. He will be joined by Roman Dela Cruz, a CHamoru practitioner of competitive sling stone throwing. The presentation will also introduce audiences to the upcoming global commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the voyage to circumnavigate the earth, and Guam’s role in this historic event.

The ancient village of Litekyan, commonly known as Ritidian in Northern Guam is one of the only places on the island where every period of human life can still be traced.
The Richard Flores Taitano Micronesian Area Research Center (MARC) embarked on a journey to uncover and document the unique layers of history found at Litekyan in an effort to tell the larger story of the CHamoru people of Guam. The MARC captured this story in the award-winning book Lina'la: Portraits of Life at Litekyan published by the University of Guam Press.
The book's creative team will share their experiences compiling information and photographing this ancient village. They will also discuss the value of respectfully documenting the stories of villages like Litekyan, and the importance of working with the community to do so.
