The clan name, Bakulo/Bakulu, is a CHamoru word for crutches. It comes from Juan Pineda Torres, who got the nickname after one of his legs was amputated because of a disease. At the time, Torres was the only person in Agat using crutches and thus, became known as Juan Bakulo. (Jess Torres, 1989 and Lourdes Torres Leon Guerrero, 2008.)

I am interested in finding a family member(s) that would like to talk about or even present on this or other family clan names and heritage at the 2024 CHamoru Genealogy Workshop.
