Guam - Residents gathered at the Gef Pago cultural center in Inarajan to hear stories told by our beloved man'amko (the island's elderly). According to local crafter Anthony Mantanona, every year, Historic Inalajan hosts such an event for people of all ages to learn more about history and culture through storytelling.
He told KUAM News, "This is where a lot of the elders speak about stories during the war or how they were brought up back then without power, the hardship of the war and everything. So this is where everyone comes together to know what had happened back then. That's why it's called a storytelling."
Mantanona made local bread and rolls using a Spanish-influenced hotnu. In addition, several displays of arts and crafts were part of today's festivities.
