Mapping the Terrain of Chamorro/Chamoru Diaspora and Indigineity

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In light of Native Pacific seafaring and navigation, Pacific Islander peoples have long been on the move. Chamorros display a history of such movement to and from the Mariana Islands in various physical, literal, cultural, familial, symbolic, spiritual and political forms. These diasporic and transnational movements are part and parcel of Native Pacific experiences with colonialism, displacement, migration, adaptation, and mobility. Throughout successive waves of Chamorro migration and dispersal, diasporic patterns have taken various shapes, forms, and locations; in response to shifting political and cultural currents across epochal tides. Consequently, Chamorros have found themselves geographically located in significant numbers in the U.S. states; politically located in ambiguity within U.S. territorial politics; and socially located in ambivalence within the U.S. racial-ethnic mosaic. This paper and presentation analyzes, maps and unravels some of this complex and contentious terrain; and move the discussion of Chamorro diaspora in the U.S. into the contemporary moment with emphasis on educational diaspora, indigeneity, epistemology, and sovereignty. Implications of future prospects and patterns are discussed.
