Commonwealth of Northern Mariana islands-Japanese Polynesia
The great black hand which stole the Face-of-Light and the boulders of the sons of Beira whisper to the stone that I am Clan Morrison. The yoga which derives the nature of the chi which creates beauty and the organic design declare that I am an artist. My brother knew a guy who half Central Pacific island and half Japanese. That is who the Chamorro people are. The other native people are the Carolinians who immigrated later. The occidental history of the island is Spain sold to Germany who lost to Japan who seeded to the UN who gave to America. The Japanese were the only ones to really develop the islands both agrarian and infrastructure. They brought in people from all over to Chrysanthemum Empire to build up the islands. (Some Chamorros in Saipan still speak Japanese) The US mostly turned the Island into a Japanese Tourist destination. They did not get US citizenship until the 1980’s. I used a bolder to make my prayer cove in Indiana.
The Northern Marianas Islands have a very special mythology. There was some sort of tiger that formerly lived on Saipan but is not in this picture. Behind everything with the flags is the American Memorial Park which the more than four thousand solder who died in the Battle of Saipan. At the end of the battle many of the residence chose suicide. The statue of the islander is of Aghurubw who was the Carolinian chief who brought his people to the island and named it Seipel meaning empty. The Obyan uncapped latte (stone pillar) and low stone wall are for the first Chamorro village under Spain.. The model of the bathyscasgage (weird submarine) is for the Marianas Trench, one of the lowest places on earth. It is 9” x 12,” drawn with pencil and white chalk and completed recently.
