Title: I Kareran I Palabran Mami-the Journey of Our Words 
Author: Hoppe-Cruz, Anghet; Borja-Kicho'cho', Kisha
Date: 2010
Abstract: Our portfolio is dedicated to speaking against the colonization of Guåhan and, to a lesser extent, the other islands in Micronesia. The main purposes for this portfolio project were to utilize performance and written poetry that would cut across the boundaries of age, gender, socioeconomic status, and religious and cultural beliefs. Furthermore, the portfolio attempts to decolonize western curricula and the field of Pacific Islands Studies by choosing the communal over the individual and honoring our oral histories/storytelling through using poetry as a means to heal, to feel empowered, to be resilient, to “write” the wrongs.
