Craig Santos Perez

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter discusses the colonial history of Guam, its current status as an "unincorporated territory" of the United States, and the ongoing militarization of the island. Perez argues that the decolonization movement on Guam is deeply invested in self-determination and environment justice, and he focuses on how decolonial politics are articulation through an archive and contemporary expression of Chamorro poetry.
