Biba Ha'ånen Botasion Ta'lo!
This election there are fewer Chamorro speakers than ever, especially at the senatorial level. But that's why I was grateful that so many candidates (such as those in these images) were willing to participate in a Chamorro language forum where they used the Chamorro language in their responses even if it was difficult for them. I've also been impressed with the number of candidates who are expressing an openness to decolonization and the possibilities of Guam becoming independent. Biba Ha'anen Botasion! Biba Chamorro! Biba Guåhan!
