Initiating change within indigenous communities


The Pacific Islands Bilingual-Bicultural Association Guam Chapter will have a public presentation and conversation with Dr. Deborah Ellen on Saturday, Jan. 27, from 11am to noon at the University of Guam, HSS106. Her presentation title is, “If you wanted to change a culture in a single generation, how would you do it? Ellen, a longtime educator and proponent of educational reform and indigenous rights, asks the questions: In what ways can the implementation of English and Western education impact indigenous communities? How do circumstances within Guam’s educational system compare to other indigenous communities? What can we learn from the work of others within indigenous communities in regard to maintaining languages and ways of being? There is no admission fee. For more information, contact PIBBA, Guam Chapter president Rosa Salas Palomo at 727-5522 or secretary Lois Gumataotao at 727-5647. (PR)
