Remembering Camp Roxas: The History of Filipino Americans in Guam

2006 marks the 60th anniversary of the first Filipino immigrants to arrive in Guam. These Filipinos were skilled laborers recruited from Iloilo Province. Their settlement at Camp Roxas in 1946 laid the foundation for four generations of Ilonggos, the Iloilo people, to become Americans. This project will entail collecting oral histories and archival research of their journey from the Philippines. These materials will be the basis of a photographic exhibition and thirty-minute documentary film.
