Trankilu todu lai. Sa' esta sage' umbre.

Whether you speak chamorro or speak chamoru or speak chaminglis. it doesn't matter LAI. Chamorro or Chamoru is only a word. Who you are is what matters. If we (people who grew up on guam after bordallo was in office) grew up in a westernized culture, it really doesn't make it our fault lai. There are people on Guam trying their best to rebuild and recover the language, customs, and the culture. So, please lai stop fan trashing your neighboring islands. Your Familia.
You're forgetting that it was because we (GUAM, SAIPAN) were under the occupation of the Japanese and the U.S. intervened and saved most of our people. You know... where my grandpa was forbidden to speak chamorro/chamoru or else they would be punished. Or how my Great Grandpa's head was cut off because he defended that very culture and language you say we lack. Don't insult, just encourage. That would be the way that chamorros/chamorus can rise again as a strong, UNDIVIDED people.

If you feel you are better than us (Guamanians) because you are fluent, then by all means be that way. BUT, for the people who are willing to help the "GUAMANIAN CHAMORROS" rebuild, then let's do it.
We owe it to the TAOTAOMONA to stand strong TOGETHER.
At the end of the HA'ANE, we are all still brown, big, and hungry.

I na'an-hu si Sean(ti chamorro na na'an lao nahong ha' para guahu). Un dangkulu na si Yu'us ma'ase para hamyu todu guenao huyong gi Islan Guahan, Saipan, Tinian, Luta, Aguijan, Anatahan, Kosrae, Chuuk, and anyone else that is apart of Micronesia. BIBA CHAMORRO! BIBA CHAMORU! BIBA MICRONESIA! BIBA TODU MAN MATAPANG! BIBA! BIBA! BIBA!


P.S. I only wanted to find out if they had a kudun Haggan recipe out of curiosity, but this was better. AND If you are using the internet, then you (too) are apart of the westernization "MOVEMENT". (DALAI, I got a lot of time on my hands today)

Snake!? Seriously!? Who ever put this "kadudu" recipe is a "dodo-head" since when do we Chamoru(Chamorro) chow snakes! And since when do we Chamoru use Italian salad dressing as one of our recipes?? Kuksika! Left by: Gwyn (2 May 2012)

I see what this is! You're trying to control the population of brown tree snakes on the island. Ai adai! Hafa este na klasin nenkånno'? I am 37yrs old and raised by my grandparents, but never heard of such a thing. Left by: Christi Warn (20 Nov 2011)

Seriously, is this a joke? That's right...KALAKAS is the word!!! Snake is not Chamorro food. Recipe should be deleted from the website. Left by: A Mafnas (27 Jul 2011)

SNAKE??? U gotta be joking! I'm a native of Guam & never eaten SNAKE. Its not part of our dish. Someone's smoking "pikalolo"or on crack to be desperate to eat snake! Whoever submitted this recipe is definitely NOT from our Island! Don't mess with us! :>€

Left by: icdahl (12 May 2011)

This is loko, to put a menu on the table knowing the natibu don't eat this dish. If you plan to eradicate snakes, CHELU don't use the toatoa tanu as traps. eeeew.... Left by: taotao isla (30 Mar 2011)

Since the snakes can't be controlled, they will try to get the Chamorros to eat them to control the population, like with the now endangered Fanihi or Fruit Bat.

Also, pidgin English is insulting to your culture. You aren't Jamaican. Speak your original actual Chamorro language if you want to preserve your culture right. Not this lazy, ignorant sounding drivel.

Since when adai have we (Chamorus) ever eaten snake for chesa'? Trus, it was submitted by the "Guam Division of Aquatic and Wildlife Resources". Hafa enao? Left by: J. Pangelinan (11 Mar 2010)

How can you consider this a native Chamorro food item ? If your referring to the the brown tree snake as your main ingredient , let it be understood that this non-native invasive species was accidentaly introduced to the island from New Guinea during WWII during the transport of US and has become the scourge of native wildlife not to mention electrical power grids .
