Guam – The Department of Chamorro Affairs, the Guam Museum, the Guam Museum Foundation, Guampedia, Guam CAHA, Guam Preservation Trust, and the Guam Community College commemorate International Museum Day 2013.

This year’s theme is “Museums (memory + creativity) = social change.” Below are some community activities that the public is encouraged to attend
this week and next week:

• May 21 (Tuesday): Posting in the Guam Museum’s Facebook page of 20+ photos of Master Carver Segundo Blas, Emilio Borja, and their apprentice Robert Limtiaco carving a 15-foot galaide (outrigger canoe), using many traditional tools, from 1982 to 1983. This event helped revitalize the Chamorros’ seafaring tradition. Go to https://www.facebook.com/pages/Guam-Museum/251069485038242
