Nihi Kids Guam Kids Talk series is a great series that gives Pacific island children the chance to ask Guam leaders the opportunity to ask important questions.

Its creators say the KIDS TALK series “gives our children access to wisdom and knowledge — direct from elders, leaders, and cultural practitioners of our islands and region. Through this series, we hope to inspire each of you to return to who we are as people of the Pacific and to cherish our elders and the traditional knowledge that they share with us.”

The series can be viewed on Nihi Kids’ Youtube channel.

Highlights include:

  • A talk with Palau highest ranking matriarch, Bilung Gloria Salii
