Guam's Humanities Council is hoping a new collection in New Zealand will lead to people in the South Pacific learning more about their 'cousins' in the north.
The Te Papa Museum in New Zealand is collecting Chamorro exhibits from Guam in an effort to share Micronesian culture with the South Pacfic.
Te Papa was collaborating with Humanities Guahan to showcase indigenous art.
Humanities Guahan's executive director Kimberlee Kihleng said the project was the first of its kind in the region.
Dr Kihleng said it would promote a presence of Chamorro art and expand efforts to reflect Guam's place in the larger Pacific community.
"It's really great for us to be able to contribute material objects from Guam and eventually from other parts of Micronesia that really represent contemporary indigenous cultures. It would be really important to have these as part of the Te Papa collection so people in New Zealand can have a taste of what our cultures and traditions are."
