Hafa adai todus hamyo! Saina ma’ase na en bisita i i iyon-måmi website! Chamorro 808 was created to help Chamorros and all others who have ties to the Marianas connect with each other here in the islands of Hawai’i. With so many Chamorros and people from the Marianas here in the islands of Hawai’i, we thought it would be nice to have a website where we can all let each other know how to reach one another. Many of us are here for college, born and raised here, are stationed here, etc., so many of us may live far away from each other. Since the islands are so large and spread apart, it can be difficult to know just exactly where other Chamorros are or what they are up to, so we hope this website becomes the place to do just that. Also, Chamorro 808 allows us here in the Hawaiian islands to share what we are doing with our people back in the Marianas, thus keeping us connected to the motherlands. From parties, fiestas, classes, and fundraisers, and let us know and we will post it on the website. If you are looking for a Chamorro language class, cooking tips, or a social space, may this website serve those needs.
Chamorro 808 was created by the Marianas Club at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. If you would like to post any information, events, or news, please contact us at Marianas@hawaii.edu. Also, every month or so, we will be posting a featured person and featured student, so if you know of any Chamorro or Marianas connected person doing great things in the community, email us so we can show their great work! Saina Ma’ase todus hamyo ya puedi ha en bisita ham ta’lo!
