Here is some inspiring news from Guam:
Recently, the Guam Council on the Arts and Humanities recognized Vince Reyes, Oceanic chairperson of the Federation of International Dance Festivals, as a Master of Chamorro Dance. This recognition is awarded to a person who has kept the traditions of master dancers of the past and a person who has preserved the craft for future generations.
Reyes states, “I’m blessed to have this passion to perpetuate our culture, to promote our island and most especially to give you a light beyond what you think you have.”
Joseph Cameron, president of the Department of Chamorro Affairs, announced that Reyes was selected to assist the new Guam Museum (set to open in 2015) with the dance exhibitions.
As with the rest of the Pacific Islands, the Chamorro culture is known for its songs and dances, and the heart and soul of their culture is conveyed through song and dance.
