Prutehi Litekyan | Save Ritidian
“Inspired by the rough surrounding waters, Guam’s first people, the tåotaomo’na, discovered this pristine place and called it Litekyan. Litekyan, which literally means “stirring place” in the CHamoru language, has been inhabited by the CHamoru people for centuries.” - University of Guam Press

Impacts of Militarization of Native Lands
When the survival of our CHamoru culture is continually threatened by outside forces, we must take action. Without our free, prior and informed consent, our cultural sites are being cleared for U.S. Military buildup construction. Many sites have already been cleared for the new Marine base, Camp Blaz. Our indigenous rights are being violated every single day the buildup construction continues.
This must stop.
