Abstract

Tourism has become the primary resource of the Territory of Guam. One of the attractions to the island, among other things, is the history of the island. Explorers and missionaries came from the west bringing along their beliefs and cultures. These beliefs and traditions worked together to shape the views of the islanders on the Westerners, and the view of the Westerners of the islanders. With the coming of the Westerners came social, economic, and political change, changes which would eventually effect future relations with the United States today.
