    So many of you will know that I already made a video on Guam ages ago! This is a bit of a "take 2" on that as it's a fascinating place and this time I went on location and learned about what has happened on the island after the North Korean missile threat. Most importantly, I filmed a behind the scenes video with Brian from Real Engineering and Joseph from Real Life Lore which you can watch here:

    And you won't find many birds on Guam because some fool accidentally transported snakes there in the cargo hold of a ship.

        Guåhan recently had a march for self-determination and many of us indigenous people are pushing for decolonization. This does not mean that we want to run the military out of the island...we want to be able to be able to create our own laws. We want to regain the land that was left to us by our ancestors and taken by the U.S...for everyone saying that Americans did know about Guåhan before 2017 have been given the wrong information. In fact even now in 2019 many Americans are not aware of Guåhan. My sister went to Minnesota and had to educate a cashier (who is an American citizen) about Guåhan. I went to California while visiting colleges and many of them considered students applying there as international students. Guåhan is not the U.S we are an unincorporated U.S Colony* we do not have the ability to make laws without them going through congress. The military is clearing our sacred indigenous land in preparation for 5,000 soldiers coming from Okinawa. Our governor requested that the military build up be paused because there have been artifacts dating back thousands of years ago being dug up. A military official denied the request to pause the build up (over our own elected official) Bones of my ancestors have been bulldozed over and the sacred land has been desecrated. This build up will poison our water supply since it will be located in the same place. Do think again before saying that Guåhan is the U.S because we most certainly are not. From Guåhan to Mauna Kea the indigenous people are rising and it is our time to reclaim the land that was taken from us. Trust me when I say the land was stolen...the CHamoru people of Guåhan who owned land were forced to give it up after the war. My friends family owned the land that Anderson Airforce base is built on and were offered basically nothing for it. Now they join me as we fight for our right as indigenous people and I call you all to join me as well.

            I support statehood for Guam. It is sufficiently populous and developed to make their non-representation in federal government just another way we as Americans fail to live up to the ideals upon which our nation was founded.

                                        Guam was a target for Russian missiles 45 years ago when I was a Submarine sailor on a Missile submarine operating out of there.

                                            It is very expensive here. My boyfriend, who works on base, was shocked when he saw how much a pack of water bottles cost outside.

                                                              So what, exactly, Mr. Benjamin Cruz would you have done during the threats from N. Korea of a missile strike. Assuming you were the U.S. President?

                                                              Should the US have bombed or invaded N. Korea so that Guam could have it's tourist commerce back? Should the US have given N. Korea whatever they wanted so they didn't attack or rescinded the threat? I get it, you lost money. What concessions, exactly, are you prepared to offer N. Korea so that there is no, "whose missile is bigger" conflict?

                                                              CRUZ! Tell us what should have been done AND what you think the effects of your decision would have been.
