Guam’s Rich History
The U.S. territory enjoys the culture of the Chamorro people, but with heavy Spanish, Japanese, and American influences. It was first colonized by Spain in the seventeenth century, was occupied by Japan for two years during World War II, and is home today to a relatively large U.S. military presence.
