GUAM


Guam is an island and unincorporated territory of the United States in Micronesia in the western Pacific Ocean. It is the westernmost point and territory of the United States. The capital city of Guam is Hagåtña, and the most populous city is Dededo, and its governor is Lou Leon Guerrero. Its population is estimated at 168,485 inhabitants in 2020.

The climate is tropical, so palm trees, ferns, and other tropical plants abound. Unfortunately, as a result of the accidental introduction in the 1940s of the brown tree snake, indigenous bird life on Guam has been devastated.

Guam is culturally diverse, with Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Korean, and other Asian communities of significant size in addition to its indigenous population and people from the mainland United States. Native Guamanians, ethnically called Chamorros, are of basically Malayo-Indonesian descent with a considerable admixture of Spanish, Filipino, Mexican, and other European and Asian ancestries. The folk arts and handicrafts of Guam have enjoyed a revival since the late 20th century. U.S. national holidays are celebrated on the island, as are several significant local dates such as Discovery Day, March 6, which commemorates the arrival of Ferdinand Magellan in 1521.

Guam is a territory of the United States governed under the Organic Act of Guam, passed by the U.S. Congress and approved by the president on August 1, 1950. The Organic Act made all Chamorros U.S. citizens.
