Written by Jeremie Charfauros on March 3, 2021
Former Congressman, Dr. Robert Underwood (PhD) speaks to Patti about the Spanish ship which visited Guam this past week which reenacted the moment in the island’s history when native Chamorros had first contact with Europeans. Dr. Underwood also touches on what he calls “Historical Imagination”, which is essentially a contrived or even romanticized re-imagining of historical events based on one’s familial or cultural histories, which consequentially give an inaccurate depiction of what truly has transpired at any point in time. Underwood also comments on the 2020 report investigating ethical complaints against Congressman Michael San Nicolas.
