Guam - The 4th Chamorro Conference will kick off this week at the Nikko Hotel in Tumon.  Representatives from throughout the region will be in attendance for the three-day event, which focuses on promoting Chamorro language and culture.  Conference chair Zita Pangelinan says the goal of the event is to develop mission statements and plans of action for the cultural, economic, and community development of Chamorros.

She explained, "Anyone who's wanting to learn more about their history and wanting to learn and hear and listen to experts, listen to researchers. This is a collaborative effort and our whole purpose is to unite and create those vision statements."

The event runs from the 12th to the 14th. You can register at the door - prices are $60 for students, teachers, and seniors, and $100 for everyone else.
