The purpose of the project was to ensure the preservation and perpetuation of Chamorro culture by establishing an apprentice program to develop existing indigenous cultural practitioners to become maestro kutturan Chamorro (Chamorro cultural instructors). These instructors will teach and promote Guam’s indigenous traditions of Chamorro dance, chants, songs, and weaving.
