The Carolinian Affairs Office will be reaching out to students on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting in the first week of September to promote the indigenous culture of Chamorros and Carolinians.
CAO executive director John Tagabuel intends to highlight both cultures by bringing to schools arts and crafts that showcase the cultures and customs of Chamorros and Carolinians.
However, Tagabuel says they still need to meet with Chamorro and Carolinian Language Heritage Studies director Jonas Barcinas to obtain the help of bilingual teachers.
He said other departments such as the Arts Council, Division of Youth Services, and Women’s Affair Office are ready to help implement the program initially.
Last year, students were introduced to the storytelling and folk tale traditions of the Chamorros and Carolinians.
