Where Did Guam’s mestiza originally come from? In the 19th century up to prewar Guam, Filipinos and Guamanians dressed alike in the Spanish-influenced “Filipino” mestiza style dresses, with a bell-shaped, transparent, sometimes richly beaded blouse made of pineapple fiber (piña), and long cotton skirt.
Today, mestiza is worn during festivals, special events, and especially during Chamorro Month to celebrate our heritage of the Island of Guam.
