Revitalizing Language to Preserve Culture

In 2013, I was asked by the local O’ahu media company, ThinkTech Hawaii to discuss my at the time upcoming thesis “Na’lå’la’ i Fino’-ta, Na’matatnga i Taotao-ta: Chamorro Language as Liberation From Colonization” on their show. Although I don’t quite like the title chosen as I aim to move way beyond the “preservation” framework for Fino’ Chamoru, I think the interview overall was decent.

Disclaimer: Dispensa’ if I were wrong about certain things in the video, it’s almost 4 years later and I know a lot more now hahah!
