The theme that sticks out the most is that there is a lot of emphasis on the negative effects of having been colonized by the United States of America. With the westernized influences that has corrupted the integrity of being a CHamoru. It has turned a people that was self-sustainable to being dependent on the imports of food and goods.
The CHamoru people have lost land, culture, language, native species of plants and animals and the list goes on. When will the CHamoru people see that we are losing who we are as a people of Guam?
Decolonization is happening. We need to be prepared to make the change and ONE PEOPLE…The CHamoru people.
Initially I thought I was going to get a bunch of pictures from all political statuses; but that didn’t work out. some people didn’t want to be affiliated with the pictures and some pictures were… not in good taste or irrelevant to the topic.
…but people were contributing to the conversation. It was awesome to just have people ask a question about what I was doing. they may have said they didn’t know and I was that first line to educate them on the differences on political status.
So when the time comes to make that change in our political status, we can move forward together.
