Judiciary Hosts Annual Commonwealth Cultural Day Festivities

Updated: 1 day ago

Saipan, MP — The Judiciary will be hosting its 3rd Annual Commonwealth Cultural Day festivities at the Guma’ Hustisia on Friday, October 6, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event will showcase a wide range of historical exhibits, handicrafts, and culinary delicacies from the Marianas, Micronesia, Polynesia, the United States, and Europe.

This year, the Judiciary Historical Society will sponsor the inaugural “Customs, Traditions & The Law Konbetsasion.” This forum will highlight how the customs and traditions of Chamorro and Refaluwasch communities can play a vital role in resolving disputes related to critical issues such as adoption, land use, and fishing rights that often end up in court. The panelists will include community members who possess knowledge of indigenous customs and traditions in the Marianas.

The event is free and open to the public, with opportunities to pose questions to panelists. We encourage everyone to take part in the festivities and enjoy the exhibits and events.

For further information, contact the Supreme Court at or at (670) 236-9800.
