BEING CHAMORU: Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero, standing, front and center, is greeted with applause after she signed a proclamation on Tuesday designating 2020 as The Year of the CHamoru. "Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands are the only places we can exercise our indigenous identity as CHamorus freely without incumbrance," the proclamation states. This year’s theme is "Be enlighted, be informed, rise." Haruo Simion/The Guam Daily Post
