It speaks at times to the an enlarged page of the Organic Act, tourist who will never come again, to specifically the section that offers the the school-age child, to young and old parameters for US citizenship. It is a CHamoru, to diaspora, to the activist, nod to Guam and the 1950s, but the and to the settler. It opens the door to text in the final gallery at the bottom all yet marginalizes others, but maybe of the stairs pushes against the unspo- that fragmentation is on purpose. ken ramifications of citizenship. The Maybe multiple perspectives save panels in this gallery document the museums from stasis and irrelevance. CHamoru people’s desire to reach I Hinanao-ta indeed mirrors the varied back to preservation and relearning discourse found in the identity rhetoric language, environment, and cultural that dominates the conversations of traditions that help define the identity many of today’s CHamoru. of the CHamoru. The rhetoric of the These are contested discourses and text is a type of meta-commentary on rhetorics, and I am therefore curious the horror and violence depicted in what other reviews
