They are Natives of their Islands. Now, those islands are part of USA.

Chamorros of Guam were colonized by Spain in early 1500's and converted to catholicism...much like Native of California / southwest. (Most, not all)

After Spanish-American war of 1898, Guam was U.S. territory. Then during WWII they were invaded by Japan, with a brutal occupation until 1944.

U.S. Armed Forces landed on Guam, and the Japanese were dug-in with tough defenses.

The USMC Navajo Code Talkers were credited with the success in re-taking of Guam, keeping Japanese radio interceptors confused while U.S. forces out-witted the Japanese counter-attack, which was brutal and suicidal.

Okay, now it's Good Times, and Chamorro (Chamoru) culture is thriving!
