on the
Ancient Chamori Flying Proa.

Greetings and Hfa Adai,
My name is
Norbert Perez and I am the founder and president of the Bring Our Ancestors Home Foundation, a Hawaii-based, non-profit organization dedicated to identifying and facilitating the repatriation of our Ancient Chamori remains and sacred artifacts.

I am issuing a worldwide web call out to secure valuable information on the
whereabouts of our Ancient Chamori Flying Proa or Proas, taken from our islands.

(a) In 1710, Captain Swan of Her Magesty's Royal Navy...transported one of our Flying Proas back to England and showcased the sailing canoe in the St. James Canal. This Flying Proa was taken from the island of Guahan (GUAM).

(b) A second and possibly a third Flying Proa was taken from the island of Tinian between 1742 and 1830 and transported back to England.

If you have any information about Captain Swan and/or the Flying Proa, please write us at

Advisory:  If you have any questions, comments and/or recommendations, you can send a message directly to our president at....

R.M. Manglo'a
Deputy Communications Secretary
