YONA

Yo’ña
The village derives its name from the word "iyo-'a. Iyo-a" means the possession of something be it material things, personal items, or spiritual ownership. Yona is located on the southeastern side of the island and is situated on a plateau overlooking the Pacific Ocean and is part of the Haya (Southern) District. Yona is well known to islanders because of Menenggon, the infamous concentration camp where the Japanese imprisoned the Chamorros before the American invasion. This village follows the village of Sinajaa where development in the form of Urban Renewal created what is Yona today.
