In March, Guam celebrates Mes CHamoru (CHamoru Month) to honor the CHamoru culture and history. Storytelling is one way our local community continue our cultural values and CHamoru heritage. This Science Sunday we honor CHamoru culture through storytelling about changes to Guam’s reefs and coasts experienced by Luis Cabral II, this month’s guest speaker. Cabral’s outlook on life is influenced by the ocean and our island’s reefs. As a fisherman and Master SCUBA Diver Trainer, Cabral will share his personal reflections growing up near the water and how those changes shaped who he is today.
“As I get older and reflect on life, I think about the growing up I did beyond school – in my own backyard which was my Mom’s before me. So did I learn from experience or did I realize what could be lost to the next generation?”
Meet Luis and hear his story at Science Sunday on March 18, 2018 at 2pm at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center. This event is free and open to the public. Seating is available on a first come, first serve basis. Get a sneak preview of Science Sunday here.
