Who we are

Guampedia.com is Guam's online encyclopedia. We are the main project of Guampedia, Inc., a nonprofit organization based in Mangilao, Guam. Our mission is to provide educational resources and services focused on Guam's unique history, culture and people, and to promote an educated and informed citizenry for our island.

The Guampedia Heritage Gift Shop is an online store that sells a variety of products that are inspired by Guam and the Marianas. We offer a selection of Marianas-themed books and gifts for people of all ages and interests.

All items are produced by local authors or artists, or are books with stories that take place in the Marianas. We will continue to expand our offerings and products in the Heritage Gift Shop, so be sure to check back often!

Most of our items are shipped directly, and some can be picked up locally at our office at House #3 Dean's Circle, University of Guam, Mangilao. Please call or email our office first to check for availability.

Support Guampedia and local artists/authors

Guampedia works with a variety of authors, artists, scholars and other community partners in all aspects of our activities and organization. We are proud to provide a venue where local authors and artists can increase their sales. In turn, a portion of the proceeds from sales of books and jewelry at the Guampedia Heritage Gift Shop helps support our continuing mission to educate people and promote knowledge and appreciation of Guam's culture and history.

If you have a suggestion for new items you would like to see, or if you have inquiries about the Guampedia Heritage Gift Shop, please contact us.
