by Krystal Paco

Guam - In celebration of Chamorro Month, Government House in Agana Heights will be open starting tomorrow for the Hinenngen Chamorro exhibit.

The month long exhibit commemorates a part of Guam's rich history and devotion to faith. Father Eric Forbes explains more, saying, "So this exhibit that we have Hinenggon Chamoru - the faith of Chamorus the time before the war is there to provide that information and so we transformed this part of government house into a walk back into the 1920s and 1930s and we have photographic evidence of what life was like."

The exhibit features photographs, statues, clothing and replications of our culture found before the war some even dating back 100 years old. An opening ceremony is set for tomorrow at 10am. Thereafter, Governor Eddie Calvo and First Lady Christine Calvo invite the public to the exhibit for the entire month open from Monday to Friday from 2pm to 5pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 4pm to 8pm.
