Guam - Guam's online encyclopedia launches its Chamorro Heritage series tonight. Guampedia managing director Rita Nauta says the series features stories of 26 women in Guam's history and some of their mementos.

The fundraising event will benefit Guampedia, which looks to preserve and perpetuate Chamorro history and culture through online education. Nauta said, "There's plenty of sources and that's what we do: we make it accessible we've been averaging steadily since march of this year 19,000 visitors monthly. Who says history's boring? We have a lot of students now doing papers that are locally relevant and that's something I couldn't do in high school."

The exhibit kicks-off tonight and runs through November at the Latte of Freedom's Hall of Governors. Tickets are available at Guampedia.com, Roasted, and Guinahan Chamorro for $25 general admission and $15 for students.
