Welcome to CHE'LU

CHE’LU is an organization committed to the preservation and promotion of Chamorro culture, language and health. CHE'LU was created and is sustained by volunteers who live in the San Diego area. CHE'LU was established in 2005 to highlight Chamorro culture and its indigenous people.

CHE'LU contributes to its mission by organizing Chamorro Cultural Festivals, which is in its 8th year in 2017. CCFs are family-fun events, filled with Chamorro music, dance, art, cuisine, and cultural education. Since 2010, our CCFs have drawn Southern Californians, out-of-staters and many of our friends from the Mariana Islands. This year we anticipate more than 10,000 unique guests from all over.
