Bill proposes naming Tiyan Parkway "Chalan Maga Haga"

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Legislation has been introduced to name the Tiyan Parkway as "Chalan Maga Haga". The bill was introduced by the three women in the Legislature Senators Tina Rose Muna Barnes, Aline Yamashita and Speaker Judi Won Pat.  Maga Haga represents the first born daughter of the highest ranking person in a clan. According to the bill just as Tiyan is the center of the island, the maga haga is a central figure in our society.

The legislation goes on to state that naming the Tiyan Parkway in honor of our island's powerful women gives tribute to the important roles women have assumed throughout Guam's history and today. Phase I of the Tiyan Parkway project is set to be completed by Summer 2015.
