Abstract

book and media reviews stated on its Facebook page--is to engage with "Guam's geology, biota, pre-history, history and contemporary culture using as an interpretive narrative `I Hinanao-ta' (the journey of the Chamorro people). . . . It shall also provide a venue for the appreciation of Guam's unique relationship with its sister islands in Micronesia through the understanding of regional cultures, traditions, practices and lore." It is important that the Guam Museum represent Chamorro experiences and island-wide stories in meaningful and accessible ways for visitors and local audiences. The museum's interpretative work on Guam must come across as dynamic, adaptable, and constantly evolving rather than as promoting a fixed, stagnant history. This will enable the institution to be better positioned to uphold its mission to include Chamorro voices and diverse perspectives. Much of this review of the museum is based on its temporary opening for the Festival of the Pacific Arts; time will tell whether future visitors will find the Guam Museum reflective of what they might hope it will represent for Guam.
