Craig Santos Perez

by si isa

A colleague recommended Craig Santos Perez’s book from unincorporated territory (saina) when I was looking for more local and regional poets and short story authors to teach my students at UOG.  I’ve been incorporating (unintentional pun?) Albert Wendt, Witi Ihimaera, Keri Hulme, and Sia Figiel into my classes for a while now, but Santos Perez is actually the first Chamorro author I’ll be teaching.
