Chief Hurao, Inc. (dba Chief Hurao Academy) is a non-profit organization that was created
in an effort to address the need for a stable and successful CHamoru language program on Guam.

Established in 2005, Chief Hurao Academy is the first “full-immersion” CHamoru language program to meet the needs of a community struggling to preserve their language. Continuing our mission will lead to an increase in fluency and usage of the CHamoru language.

WHY SHOULD I LEARN
to speak CHAMORU?


“Empottånte na para bai hu tungo’ fumino’ CHamoru. Hurao fuma’nånague’ yu’ CHamoru ya empottånte na todu CHamoru u ma tungo’ fumino’ CHamoru. Måmatai i lengguåhi-ta yan i kotturå-ta. Ya-hu yanggen gaige yu’ gi Cho’gue Ha’! (adult class) ya hu ayuyuda siha sa’ ti ma tungo’.” 

Prensesa, Gabriella Cruz, 11

“Måfatto yu’ Hurao sa’ malago’ yu’ mås måolek gi fino’ CHamoru. Ti gi kumentos ha’, lao kontodu mångge’ yan manaitai lokkue’. Empottånte fumino’ CHamoru kossa ki para u ma tungo’ i pumalu na ti atrasao para un eyak yan kontodu para i mañaina.” 

Guinaiya, Alirah Munoz, 6

“Hurao Academy has done absolute wonders to perpetuate our culture, language, and heritage... The mañaina don’t teach for you just to speak, but to be absolutely fluent... After just a few months, I was bringing these lessons home and immersed myself with my parents and grandparents. Imagine a place one could go to, to do all things CHamoru; to learn, read, write, play, sing, cook, laugh and especially speak, all in CHamoru. Imagine children running around conversing in CHamoru. This is a reality at Hurao and on several occasions, this has brought me to tears; children speaking CHamoru.” 

Osgon, Terrance Diego, 27

 

“Hasso yu’, fa’nå’gue yu’, nå’i yu’ ni’ iyo-ku.”

Think of me, teach me, give me what is mine. Chief Hurao Academy
