Guam - Close to two dozen Chamorro Land Trust and ancestral land properties were turned over this morning to families on Guam, some of whom have waited decades for this to happen. Landowners like Herbie Perez and Leonora Bordallo expressed their excitement this morning during a deeds signing at Adelup.

Perez said, "I just want to thank the governor, the director and the commission for giving us this opportunity to acquire this property for our uncle and we will treasure for the rest of our life." Bordallo added, "Our ancestors have always valued this idea of passing land over to the children and that's one of the traditions that has been left with the Chamorro culture, so I'm sure that today they're just shouting and doing the batsu."

Two deeds were signed for ancestral land properties whereas 14 residential and 7 agricultural leases were issued by the Chamorro Land Trust Commission for a term of 99 years.
