About Guam

Guam is an island located in the North Pacific Ocean. The native Chamorro name for the island is "Guahan", which means "we have" or "ours". It comes from the idea that they have everything they need. The name was changed to Guam in 1898, when Spain ceded the island to the U.S. It's now an organized, unincorporated territory of the U.S. The official languages of Guam are English and Chamorro. Chamarro is a language of mixed "Hispanic-Austronesian" origins.
