Description

The book focuses on the women who have made a positive impact on Guam society as organizers. The people of Guam, increasingly conscious of their indigenous identity as Chamorros, have produced a generation who are defending their right to self-determination. Organizing toward these ends are Chamorro women. The historical Catholic Church in this small island nation struggles to protect a cultural identity and a way of life which must change, but at what cost? These Chamorro women provide leadership, defend their language, battle for their land, and fight to control social institutions in the public sector so as to insure the continuity of a way of life which is under seige.
