Extractions: The Marshallese culture is matrilineal. Women have always had great influence and power. The traditional roles of women are still recognized and respected even if their function no longer exists or has been changed over time. Politeness is a part of the Marshallese custom. Children are taught at a young age to respect their elders. The deep sense of respect for elders has made it common practice not to talk back, especially when being scolded for doing wrong. The children learn at a very early age to keep quiet when an older person is talking. Language English and Marshallese are the official languages, but for the most part, English is the language of the elite and the educated. English is the language of instruction at the secondary level while Marshallese is dominant in the elementary grades. The two chains of islands in the Marshalls, the Ratak and the Ralik, both have variations in terminology and pronunciation. However, the people of all the atolls understand the general language. Education The Republic of the Marshall Islands has 70 public elementary schools, 18 private elementary schools, 2 public high schools, and 5 private high schools. Elementary school curriculum is designed to prepare students to function in the Marshall Islands and for entrance into the Marshall Islands Secondary Program. Secondary education prepares pupils to function in the Marshall Islands, and with this greater scope of education, as citizens of the world community.

Extractions: Marshall Islands Comprising over a thousand flat coral islands of white sand beaches and turquoise lagoons, the Marshall Islands beckon visitors with all the promise of a tropical paradise. There's pristine diving and lush tropical greenery, and the Marshallese people retain many of their precolonial crafts and traditions, especially on the outer islands. You can still watch outrigger canoes zipping around the lagoons, though these days you're as likely as not to find a VCR in that little grass shack and Coke replacing coconut milk as many islanders' drink of choice. The flipside to the paradise picture is that many of the Marshallese still struggle with the after-effects of the 20th century's nastiest technology. Several of the islands - the Bikini Atoll in particular - served as testing sites for atomic bombs through the 1960s, and many of their inhabitants have suffered from radiation poisoning, while their home islands remain too contaminated to be resettled. And yet, despite these hardships, you'll find the Marshallese exceptionally welcoming and their culture and identity alive and well. Full country name: Republic of the Marshall Islands

Click on the flag for links relating to that period. Following the visits by Spanish vessels in the 1500s, contact with European ships became frequent in the late 18th and early 19th century. From the 1840s onwards beachcombers, traders and then missonaries became residents on several atolls, influencing the life of the Marshallese population more Germany bought the Marshall Islands off Spain in 1885. It established a small administration, run first as a concession company and later administered directly from Berlin. The main economic development was the expansion of copra industry on the atolls and the commencement of phosphate mining on Nauru. more Japan acquired the Marshall Islands, with the exception of Nauru, during World War I. It established a larger administration which continued the expansion of the copra industry, but also developed fishing and handicraft. During World War II many atolls were developed into formidable military bases.

Extractions: These beautiful islands are a collection of 1,225 islands and islets of which only five are single islands. The rest are grouped into 29 coral atolls which together make up more than one-tenth of all the atolls in the world resembling strings of pearls in a blue ocean backdrop. It is no wonder they are referred to as the 'Pearl of the Pacific'. They lie in two parallel chains known as sunrise and sunset (Ratak and Ralik) and in true atoll form, they are narrow and low and encircle large central lagoons. All the islands have glorious white sandy beaches, tall palms and are lapped by crystal clear waters. Click on the above map for a detailed map. Of the 29 atolls, 27 are accessible by small plane (Air Marshall Islands). Majuro and Kwajalein atolls, the two population centres are serviced by both Air Marshall Islands and Continental Air Micronesia Jet Aircraft. There are also regular flights to Guam, Hawaii and Fiji.

Extractions: While dates and origins may still be arguable the uniqueness of the culture which evolved on these islands is certain. Marshallese society was and for the most part, still is, stratified into three general classes: Iroij (chiefs), Alap (clan heads), and Rijerbal (workers). The Iroij have ultimate control of such things as land tenure, resource use and distribution, and dispute settlement. The Alap's duties include maintenance of lands and supervision of daily activities. The Rijerbal are responsible for the daily work involved in subsistence, construction, agriculture, etc. In addition, land is divided into twelve categories, ranging from Imon bwij, land belonging to the whole lineage, to Kitdre, land given by a husband to his wife as a gift. Inheritance is matrilineal (passed through the mother). Fishing technology, for instance, developed into one with very high specialization. The wide range of fishing environments coupled with the great variation in fish species led to a diverse and highly specialized range of fishing techniques. Few other cultures in the world have developed as many fishing techniques and styles as the Marshallese.
