Keywords: dfadsfs Running head: GUAM: LAND OF THE CHAMORROS 3 Guam: Land of the Chamorros

 

Guam is a self-governing and unincorporated territory of the United States. It lies in the

 

middle of the Pacific Ocean and it is the largest and most populous of the Marianas chain of

 

islands (Guampedia, 2015).

 

The island of Guam has a land mass of 212 square miles and its shaped like a footprint.

 

The formation of the island was a result of two volcanoes that merged. It has two distinct

 

geological compositions where two-thirds of the island is raised limestone on the northern

 

plateau while the south is consisted of raised volcanic formations at Mount Santa Rosa and

 

Mount Mataguak. Mount Lamlam is known to be the highest point with an elevation of 1,334

 

feet (Geography of Guam, n.d.).

 

The natives of Guam, who are basically of Malayo-Indonesian origin, are known as

 

Chamorro. The Chamorros comprise 37 percent of the total population of Guam (Guam Visitors

 

Bureau, 2016). Nearly one-third of the population are Filipinos while a small percentage of the

 

population are of European lineage (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2016).

 

Guam has a complex cultural history and Encyclopedia Britannica (2016) provides a brief

 

account of the people that settled in Guam. Indonesian-Filipino people settled in the island

 

during the 2nd millennium BCE. Spain claimed the island in 1565 and it remained under Spain

 

until 1898 during the Spanish-American war. The Spaniards surrendered Guam to the United

 

States, except during the Second World War when the Japanese occupied the island, the United

 

States president appointed a naval officer as governor of Guam until 1950.

 

The post war restoration of Guam made it a center for commercial and economic with the

 

United States expanding its military interest in the island. Guam has a diverse population made GUAM: LAND OF THE CHAMORROS 4 possible by the establishment of a local, civilian government where people from all over the

 

world found it easy to pursue careers and various economic activities in the island and even settle

 

with their families due to lesser military restrictions in entering the island (Guam Visitors

 

Bureau, 2016).

 

Culture

 

Economy: position in global market;

 

Government

 

Although Guamanians are US citizens, they cannot vote in US Presidential Elections.

 

Guam is governed by the US under the 1950 Organic Act of Guam. The President of the United

 

States is the head of state and a governor, who was presidentially appointed up until 1964

 

(Guampedia, 2015) is elected by popular vote for a four-year term heads their local government.

 

Because Guam is not a State, it has no senators or representatives in Congress, although they

 

send delegates to the House of Representatives with no voting privileges. The delegates have

 

minimal role in Congress thus the citizens of Guam has no representation.

Military

 

As an incorporated territory, the United States has the sole responsibility for Guam?s

 

defense. The US military has two strategic bases located in Guam - Naval Base Guam and

 

Andersen Air Force Base. With the US strategic shift to the Pacific and East Asia, the military

 

bases are now more valuable because of its close proximity to North Korea and potential hot

 

spots in Asia such as the South China Sea. 5 GUAM: LAND OF THE CHAMORROS References
