Lina'la': Portraits of Life at Litekyan

Lina'la': Portraits of Life at Litekyan

Horizontal Tabs


Located at the northern most tip of Guam, life at Litekyan, commonly known as Ritidian, can be traced back more than 3,500 years to the first people who called the beautiful island of Guam their home. Litekyan sits on the outer edge of Guam’s extremely old northern limestone plateau and its preserved habitat zones have continued to co-exist as the homes for indigenous plants and animals, important not just for wildlife alone, but also for cultural uses and traditions.

This collection of stunning portraits captures just some of the rich stories that have shaped Litekyan’s layered memories and meanings.
