Storytelling Features Lancho and Puppet Show - Feb. 25
Ginen members scheduled to conduct the storytelling at the Nieves M. Flores Memorial Library focused on Lancho and Lanchero. Dr. Matilda Naputi Rivera began with a poem she and Lois Taitano Gumataotao composed in their book Our Native Daughters Reflection of Guam and its People. This was followed by Simeon Palomo's story about the ranch. Thereafter, Lois, Dr. Rivera, Simeon, and Ginen I Hila Vice President Toni Salas, began their puppet show which highlighted the animals of the lanchero, namely the guaka, mannok, babui, nga nga, and chiba. They also imitated the sounds of each of the animals when it came to certain lines of the story. The children were further delighted by the beautiful guitar music and singing activity by Ginen Historian Annie Margarita Babauta Pineda. Biba Ginen I Hila!
