Histories, Identities & Futures
Famoksaiyan translates to either “the place or time of nurturing” or “the time to paddle forward and move ahead.” It is in this spirit that this movement is being organized. To provide a space where the somewhat dire, health, economic, and social and cultural issues Chamorros are facing through the world can be discussed by students, activists, educators and professionals and so on, with the hopes of developing progressive solutions. In addition we are hoping that this movement will provide an opportunity for Chamorros scattered through out the islands and the United States to form crucial personal, professional and political networks which will make a progressive future for Chamorros and their communities possible.
