Festival of Pacific Arts 2016

Festival of Pacific Arts is now held here in Guam.

Guam is a territory of USA and also one of pacific islands located in Micronesia.

So many pacific countries and islands, including Australia, NEW Zealand, Cook island, Samoa, Easter island,  Fiji and Hawaii, participate the festival.

Honestly speaking, I didn’t know some of them, such as Nauru, Niue, Tokelau…

The main area of the festival is Chamoro village.

I visited there to look around today.

There are small houses of each islands.

 

I got surprised to see Taiwan’s house. yes, Taiwan is also a pacific island but is more like east Asia in my mind.

There are people in their traditional costume.

Dance show.

Traditional wooden craft.

And, of course foods.


To know a new culture is always exciting.
