Founder & Creative Director

Guma’ Matao aims to house resources for the Chamorro community (and beyond) for the renewal of our ancestral life ways. 

We FANHASSO — remember, conceive, and imagine —  the house as living entity — it is the place where knowledge is stored — it is also the place where knowing come alive through activation — conscious engagement, prayer, chant, ‘performance’, dance, embodiment.

Creator & Curator 

#DigitalGuåfak started as cyber space for celebrating ‘everyday acts of resurgence’ by weaving videoclips, soundbites, and images of contemporary Matao spiritual practices to unify our lineages across and beyond oceanic/national/diaspora boundaries.

At the Urbanesia Festival 2015 in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa (Auckland, NZ) I co-produced Gupot Sumongsong and curated and presented people’s contributions to #DigitalGuåfak as an arts installation. 

In 2019, the project will re-emerge as a platform for inter-indigenous creative conversations about how our indigenous worldview comes alive in daily spiritual practices. The conversation will take shape as an online gallery of curated exchanges between Matao and non-Matao indigenous cultural practicioners. 

ARKiology EDUtainment NETwork

Co-founder & Artist

ARKiology EDUtainment is a NETwork of indigenous pasifika artist/educators proving we have always already been the experts on who we are, since ever since. 

Their self-titled album 'THE ARK' dropped in the summer of 2012 featured the anthemic 'I'm Down for the Movement'. 


The ARK website (now inactive) was a digital platform for creatively building an ARK to sail through the flood of mainstream culture.
