Histories of Farming and Agriculture on Guåhan (Fy2019 Community Grant)
By Kristin Oberiano
Guåhan Sustainable Culture, Humanities Guahan Grantee
Abstract: In Ginen I Gualo’, Guåhan Sustainable Culture conducted archival research, oral history, and interviewed local farmers to highlight traditions of agriculture and farming on Guåhan. The online resource hopes to educate and reconnect the public to those growing our local foods and to envision food sovereignty for our island community. In addition to playing a short video of one of our farmer interviews, this presentation will take a behind-the-scenes look into how our project came into fruition, including content creation for archival research, farmer interviews, and website design. The Ginen I Gualo’ website can be found at gusustainable.org/ginenigualo.
