Guam - Lawmakers started session off with a lesson on language. Actually, Senator Mana Silva Taijeron's Bill 95 was discussed on the floor. Her bill would mandate the Department of Education provide more Chamorro language and curriculum classes to middle and high school students.
"For too long I believe that this language and our culture has been suppressed and oppressed and from a time when we were told not to speak the language; I think this is our time to let this be the renaissance of our culture," Taijeron said. "Let this be our legacy and if we truly believe Chamorro is a valuable part of our island and culture then let's prove it and I ask my colleagues to support this bill."
