HAGÅTÑA (IHFG) — I Hagan Famalåo’an Guåhan Inc. presents “Ina’daihen Maisa” with Tressa Perez Diaz, Ph.D. and Lisa Linda Natividad, Ph.D., LCSW on Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 6 p.m. CHST. 

The health and survival of indigenous communities are affected by the environments we are born, live, work and age in.

How is the health of indigenous CHamorus impacted by factors like socioeconomic status, education, and social support networks?

This session will explore social determinants of health and assess how CHamorus stack up and more specifically, how historical experiences and access to cultural resources have impacted the health outcomes of CHamorus in current times. Audiences may attend the webinar on the IHFG Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/haganguahan/.

This is the 10th and final installment in the series, “Mo'na: Finding Our Way,” created for women to examine, analyze and interpret historical roles of CHamoru women in the Marianas, sustainability practices, and health and indigenous healing practices within a humanities context.

The series has featured presentations led by CHamoru women scholars, activists, experts and cultural practitioners, facilitated discussion and other interactive components.

In addition to presenting the series, IHFG dedicated a portion of grant funds to offer a laptop and MiFi lending service to support women’s participation.

This project is made possible through a grant from Humanities Guåhan, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the federal CARES Act, as well as funding from the Guam Economic Development Authority. Any views expressed do not necessarily reflect those of our funders.
