The executive director of Humanities Guåhan since 2005, Kimberlee Kihleng has expanded the council’s partnerships with local and regional organizations and broadened the scope of its activities to highlight Guåhan’s diverse cultures, especially in relation to the larger Pacific Islands region. Kihleng has overseen some of the council’s most ambitious and rewarding program initiatives, focusing on important and often divisive civic and social justice issues—land use and access, cultural identity and resilience, indigenous rights, decolonization, migration, environmental sustainability and increased militarization. She was elected to the Federation board in 2018.
