Marshallese have a long, rich history and a beautiful culture waiting to be explored by our volunteers and supporters, albeit with the understanding that expansionism’s imprint on their indigenous lifestyle and the effects of climate change on their small island country is a key consideration when finding solutions. This is especially true in regard to how expansionism relates to their health and welfare. Nito’s family has been both locally and globally involved in raising awareness, and we believe it to be an important part of honoring her life that these topics are understood by people engaged in our projects.
