A preparatory training program and two one-week discussion series on the island of Saipan, focusing on the seventeenth-century Spanish-Chamorro Wars and the World War II Battle of Saipan.

War in the Pacific: Difficult Heritage, a project of East Carolina University (ECU) in partnership with the Northern Marianas Humanities Council (NMHC) and the Saipan Historic Preservation Office (HPO), will engage veterans, surviving civilian participants of WWII, and families of military service personnel in considering how difficult heritage, or heritage that relates to past conflicts, can be seen as universal to humanity and how it can be used to heal and renew. The starting point for this consideration will be to focus on the historical and modern warrior/veteran’s experience as it relates to our collective human experience of war and how we might come to understand and interpret the heritage created through conflicts as a shared, collective heritage.
