The contact between the Chamorros and Filipinos started as a result of Western colonization. When the Spanish took over the island of Guam and the Philippines they decided to bring Filipino as a result of the overpopulation in the Philippines. They brought skillful men, who could help them build their colony in Guam. There was a point in history where the Chamorro people could no longer distinguish themselves from the Filipino. Although during the Spanish era many Chamorros intermarried with Filipino, today their relationship is a little bit weak, because Filipinos are starting to outnumber the Chamorros in every field. Chamorros today feel like the only way to find a job is to move to the States because the Filipinos have taken over every job out there in Guam.
