Chamorus and Marshallese comprise two of the six largest Pacific Islander ethnic groups living in California and Washington. As Micronesians, they share similar cultural and historical experiences, all of which have shaped their diasporas to the continental United States. By featuring Chamoru and Marshallese activists and scholars in California and Washington, this roundtable will highlight their expertise in dance, public health, education, language, and public history as they navigate the impacts of climate change, militarism, and settler colonialism.
