Morcizas refers to one of Chamorro traditional foods made of chicken neck stuffed with chicken meat, pepper leaves, onions and garlic, tied at both ends and stewed in broth. The Chamorro people arrived on Guam from the Malay Peninsula around 3000 BCE, and they occupied the island alone until Ferdinand Magellan landed there in 1521. Having survived invasions by the Spanish, the Japanese and the Americans, they still comprise 43 per cent of the island's population, and they have managed to retain their cultural identity, including language, customs and cuisine.
