Using a replica of the native Chamorros' outrigger boats as his figurative vessel, these poems explore the personal, historical, cultural, and natural elements of the poet's native Guam. Combining and contrasting the fragmentary myths of the author's island ancestors, intimate childhood stories of growing up on Guam, and the history of his family's immigration to the United States--with primary histories and texts of the colonial domination and abuse brought on by Spain, Japan, and the United States--these poems give voice to the anguish of the oppressed as well as their hopes for the future. Referring to both the island nation of Guam and the uncharted expanses of one's own soul, the "unincorporated territory" title reflects the author's attempts to express concepts that go beyond the current reaches of any language.
