This chapter also locates itself in Tomhom, Guam, and examines the heightening and intensification of meanings as they battle for control over San Vitores' legacy among the Chamorros, or over Chamorro investments in San Vitores, for the cultural and political meanings pivot around who gets to occupy the subject position of the narrative. Though transnational and transcultural in character, the economic, political, and cultural stakes that are “staked” in Tomhom Bay also describe competing indigenous Chamorro histories of “localizing” ideas and practices that originate from beyond their shores. In addition to ventilating these competing narratives, the chapter scrutinizes their uses and abuses as modes of narrativizing Guam's cultural and political pasts and presents.

Keywords:   Diego Luis de San Vitores, Tomhom, Guam, Chamorros
