However, even as it stands, the current version of Etto nan Raan Kein: A Marshall Islands ¯ History is a valuable contribution to the growing number of histories of particular Pacific communities reflecting indigenous perspectives. and migration.

An expansion of the text in this area would be useful for a greater understanding from both a historical as well as a medical perspective. All these topics can be developed in the proposed
