Overview

CHamoru Legends: A Gathering of Stories retells 12 CHamoru legends with personal reflections from author Teresita Lourdes Perez, unique illustrations for each legend by Guam artists, and versions of the legends in the CHamoru language by Maria Ana Tenorio Rivera. The publication is a reversible book featuring the legends in English on one side and in CHamoru on the other. Through these layers of interpretation, the book weaves together strips of wisdom and cultural lessons like the leaves used to shape the CHamoru guåfak, or mat, upon which the earliest CHamoru storytellers sat sharing their versions of these timeless tales.
