The village of Mangilao is located in the eastern part of the island and is part of the Kattan (Eastern) District. This village derives its name from the word “ilao”. “Ilao” means to look for something or to search for something. Hunters or fishermen went to this area to fish or to search for crabs, deer or wild pigs. Mangilao is the center of higher education on Guam with both the University of Guam and the Guam Community College. Rapid development in this village has made it quite populated, as it is now the home of many Micronesian islanders who have chosen to migrate to Guam. The island prison facilities for juvenile offenders and convicted criminals are located here as well as the Government of Guam’s Agricultural station and the experimental station for seafood harvesting under the Government’s Commerce Department.
