Manhita Chamorro gets grant from Guam Visitor’s Bureau September 30 2013

GUAM VISITORS BUREAU CULTURAL HERITAGE AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH committee just awarded MANHITA CHAMORRO a sizeable grant towards the historical documentary film trailer narrated by Pale` Eric Forbes. Un Dangkulo’ na Si Yu’us Ma’ase and thank you to everyone at GVB who made this possible.

 Manhita Chamorro’s first project is to produce a “Smithsonian quality” historical documentary based upon Pale’ Eric Forbes’ 26 years of research spanning 5 countries and the Marina Islands.  To accomplish this endeavor, in the interim, Manhita Chamorro will  produce a “movie trailer” introducing this project to the community to raise awareness and seek corporate and individual sponsorship for the project.

 Manhita Chamorro aims its efforts to educate the Chamorro people both living in the Mariana Islands and abroad of its rich culture and language through the study of its pre-war, World War II and modern day Guam not only through research of hard data but also through the recording of the man’amko before that generation and its perspective is lost.  Manhita Chamorro seeks to achieve this goal through engaging in projects that will utilize all aspects of media outreach such as video archiving, print media and the production of documentaries as well as through providing live workshops in communities who seek this knowledge.

Manhita Chamorro receives funding from Che’lu Inc., Bay Area Women’s Organization, Kutturan Chamoru Foundation and Guam Visitors Bureau.
