Description

Part of Guampedia's Chamorro Folktales commemorative poster series, these posters were originally printed for the 2014 Guam Micronesia Island Fair (GMIF), and designed by Odyessa San Nicolas. They were based on Guampedia's epublication, Chamorro Folktales, featuring 10 enduring Chamorro stories and legends. All posters in this series consist of shortened versions of the folktales and images of original artwork by local artists. The general poster features a map of Guam with locations of the folktales and a map of the Mariana Islands. Guampedia’s e-book Chamorro Folktales is available for purchase in pdf, epub and mobi format.

Sirena is Guam's mermaid story. Unlike other cultures that have legends involving the seductive nature of this mythical creature, Guam's version gives an interesting glimpse in Chamorro society and relationships between mothers, godmothers and daughters. There is also an important lesson about obedience and the power of words. Illustration by Monica Baza.
