Aguon unveils new "Let's Chat in Chamorro"

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Last night among family, friends and colleagues, Dr. Katherine Aguon unveiled the third edition of her new book "Let's Chat In Chamorro". Dr. Aguon, who has authored several other books, was the first Chamorro woman to earn a PhD.

Acting director of the Department of Chamorro Affairs Joseph Cameron says the Chamorro language has its challenge in the modern day, but adds that culture, heritage and where you come from is the root of all languages. "I would like to impart to the people of Guam that we need more individuals such as Dr. Aguon, who stands very firm on the orthography of the language, who stands firm very strongly that individuals who have a need to speak Chamorro, have a venue in which they will do that."

The book was published by Moylan's Insurance Underwriters.
