Are Guam citizens allowed to vote for the US president?

Guam citizens are US citizens. If you are born on Guam, you are a US citizen. But because Guam is a territory of the US (similar to puerto rico, US virgin islands, etc) they cannot participate in the general elections as Guam does not have an electoral vote. If a person from Guam moves to one of the 50 state and becomes a resident then yes they will be allowed to vote but that vote will be in their current state elections

Where are the guamese originally from?

they are origanilly from south-central America. They traveled on boats to populate all the (present day) countries of the southern pacific islands. This is true if your of Polynesian descent, However Guam is closer to Asia. The decendants of Guam could be tied in with the Taiwanese. They're facial structure are stunningly similar. This could be their direct line of desendants. The island of Guam and its chain called the Marianas are actually part of the Caroline chain, which was later separated and identified for colonial claim. Guamanian would probably describe a person from Guamania. Chamorro in Spanish means the calf of an animal (the scrawney part, not the rump). So it would be safe to catagorize them as,"Carolinian" or "Guamese". I perfer "chamorro" not for it's spanish description, but its sounds nicer.
