I am Chamorro,
Native Indigenous people of the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam.
I am “Gilita” of Luta
means from the island of LUTA
A remote island in the middle of the sea
surrounded by the largest body of water in the world
the PACIFIC OCEAN!
I am part land and sea
It’s what makes me ME…ALL of ME!
It is the culture, the ocean, the island, the air, the heaven above
It is our ancestors, our people
It is the language, the stories, the dance
The beautiful songs we sing
I am my mother’s daughter
I am my father’s daughter
I am the daughter of all before ME!
I am never truly just ME!
I am CHAMORRO
I am my family and my family is ME!
I AM THEIR LEGACY!
