Carnival of the Blue X

Carnival of the BlueCarnival of the Blue X is now live at Kate Wing's Switchboard.

My submission was my response to the recent Napoleon Wrasse controversy here on Saipan, Practicing My Culture.

I want to submit this piece as a letter to the editor, but it is not ready yet. It is still too bloggy.

There are a lot of ideas swirling around in my head and I have not yet been able to hammer them into bullet point ideas.

The cultural component of environmentalism and development is difficult. What is culture? What are Indigenous Rights? What is it that makes me Chamorro? For that matter, what is it that makes me Irish and American?

Maybe that post will be ready in time for the next carnival. Stay tuned.
