Humanities Guåhan is an independent non-profit organization that
presents and supports public humanities programs and projects for the people of Guam.



In 2009, Humanities Guåhan had #TransitionalTable, which explored Guam’s shifting food traditions during and after World War II. The program included an exhibit that highlighted the way that Chamoru food traditions, practices and products changed as a result of World War II. This was presented as part of the Smithsonian: Institutional Exhibit of "Key Ingredients America by Food".

Our latest project, Reimagining Guåhan: Social Justice through a Humanities Lens, follows the civic reflection model to engage in humanities-based discussions with our richly diverse community about the meaning of equality and democracy by exploring a range of important social justice issues to reimagine a Guåhan that is more just, inclusive, and sustainable.




Our outdoor youth initiative Taking Root: Growing Youth Empowerment for Island Sustainability returns on June 20, 2022! Taking Root promotes physical activity, civic engagement, and greater cultural and ecological awareness while encouraging diverse islander youth to share their knowledge and work collaboratively on problems caused by cultural and environmental change.
