Pacific Historic Parks History Talks: The Saipan Interpreters (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Pacific Historic Parks History Talks: The Saipan Interpreters
Abstract: During the Japanese Occupation of Guam (December 1941 to July 1944), the Japanese, who could not speak Chamorro, employed 50 or so Chamorro interpreters from Saipan and a few from Rota, who could speak both Chamorro and Japanese, to facilitate communication with the Guam Chamorros, who could not speak Japanese. The participation of the Saipan and Rota interpreters during the Japanese Occupation imparted a deep wound within many Guam Chamorros, a wound that was credited for the failure of Marianas reintegration in the 1960s. Saipan wanted to unify with Guam, Guam said no. The war experience was one reason mentioned. Was the popular indictment of Saipan interpreters justified? What can we learn on how it came about? What was the experience of Saipan interpreters themselves? And what does the historical record actually show about the interpreters’ activities on Guam during the war?

Guåhan Sustainable Culture Local Produce Glossary (Web Resource)
Title: Guåhan Sustainable Culture Local Produce Glossary
Author: Guåhan Sustainable Culture
Abstract: The core tenets of food sovereignty are for a community to not only have access to food, but for the community to know where their food comes from and to have food that is culturally relevant. In GSC’s interpretation, we believe that for Guam to be more food sovereign, we must support local farmers who are growing locally-loved foods by purchasing and consuming mostly local produce. We also believe our island’s consumers should know where their food is coming from, the farmers who are growing them, and the people who are distributing it to them. Thus, cultural education is important and vital to our mission to greater food sovereignty. In order to expand the cultural education aspect of our “Supporting Farmers, Sustaining Families”, GSC has created this open resource for people to find out more information about local produce, the many recipes that incorporates the produce into everyday meals, and their significance to Guam's culture and society.

5th Marianas History Conference: Valuing Our Ancestral Knowledge in the Seafaring System (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: 5th Marianas History Conference: Valuing Our Ancestral Knowledge in the Seafaring System
Author: Larry Raigetal
Abstract: In light of the present physical challenges brought upon our own desire and by natural process, we are faced by constant choices to make. Such choice will ultimately bear consequences on our lives. While for the most part, and perhaps by our cultural susceptibility, these changes are more often accepted as they come, it can be said that the "old ways," our ancestral knowledge, cultural values and practices of the past have come to a threshold. From the simplest socially acceptable behaviors within our societies to the more sophisticated cultural technologies handed down from generation to generation, i.e. traditional navigational system, we must ask some fundamental questions. Are they still relevant or should they take their destiny and fade away over the horizon belonging only to ancestral past? This panel will consist of elders and knowledge holders in seafaring who will speak to current efforts to promote indigenous knowledge and cultural values by ensuring the future generation is not left to wonder who they are.
