To be able to buy and store butter in the home was a sign of affluence, and one group of people were labeled for flaunting it.
A few Chamorros who joined the U.S. Navy (marino/marinu, sailor) could buy butter at the Navy commissary and were called "marinun mantekiya." It was a way other Chamorros could tease them.
What did Chamorros use, then, as a spread on bread or other starches like lemmai (breadfruit)?
Fat from pork
