Guam - The 4th Annual Konferensian Chamorro is underway at The Nikko on Tumon Bay. According to conference coordinator Zita Pangelinan, many Chamorro organizations from all over the region are attending the event with a mission to establish a vision for education, language and culture along with economics, health and spirituality.
She said, "Like every indigenous community, there's a vast change. The need to go back and refocus on our history and our identity. These are some of the topics we are talking about. This morning, the session was about health and spirituality. The planning committee had decided to step back and really focus and develop and chart our course for our people as a Chamorro that we needed to step back and look at our health and our spirituality."
The conference ends Thursday. You can still register by calling 637-6906 for more information.
