Guam –  A workshop to create a Marianas-centric CHamoru Seafaring Lexicon and  awaken and connect to Chamorro ancestral heritage is set for July 26 and 27.

This workshop is the third in a set of four being offered by Guam Council on the Arts and Humanities with funding from the Guam Visitors Bureau and support from Guam Preservation Trust and Guampedia. The workshop is being offered to keep Guam artists current with plans for the Festival of the Pacific scheduled for 2016 on Guam, and improve their knowledge on how they can better prepare their works for a professional display.
