Guam - If you've got a Facebook account, you'll definitely want to be a fan of the Hurao Academy, as the group is on the World Wide Web.  The Hurao Academy is one if not the first Chamoru immersion schools that focus on the teaching of the Chamoru language and self-identity on Guam.

It was founded in June 2005 as a non-profit organization. You'll definitely want to stay tuned to extra next week because we are teaming up with the Hurao Academy to learn Chamorro, its Chagi Chamoru everyday during Mes Chamorro and in the meantime make sure to check out Hurao on Facebook.
