Box 23, Local; or hourglass@ Thanks given for travel helpAs almost everyone on the island is aware, all Continental and AMC ights out of Kwajalein were booked solid, if not oversold, the week of Feb. 14 to accommodate all the TDYers who were here for IFT14, making it dif cult, if not impossible, for residents to get off the island. A family emergency arose on Feb. 16, making it necessary for four of our residents to get out immediately. The only way this was going to happen was for the full Feb. 17 ATI ight to “make room” for the family of four. I want to publicly express my appreciation for the tireless efforts of Ray Smead and Debbie Thomas of Raytheon for making this possible. They spent hours seeking out, and nally nding, volunteers from their group willing to give up their seats on ATI in order for this family to be able to leave. Once they found the volunteers, they then spent another four hours making connecting ights and hotel reservations for the volunteers. I was not able to speak my appreciation to the volunteers themselves on behalf of the family, but, again, I do say “Thank you Mr. Smead and Debbie for your concern and diligence in going above and beyond what anyone could ever have asked.

Wednesday, March 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3See Majuro next pageMajuro visit brings two cultures together By Lauren Traweek Special to the HourglassI have just returned from the Majuro Women’s Clubs/Kwajalein Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club cultural exchange having had, as one member phrased it “a life changing experience.” Not only did I make special friends with women on Kwajalein whom I never really knew, I was overwhelmed by the kindness, patience and love shown us by our new Marshallese sisters and friends. Our trip started several months ago – trying to nail down the best weekend for both sides. Traditionally, Kwaj women go to Majuro every other year, and we host the Majuro clubs on alternating years. This was our year to travel, and I nally decided to put aside my shyness about my language barriers (no spoken Marshallese except “kommol tata”), and my fears of offending, not knowing traditional customs. For the past several weeks, there has been a general buzz and urry of emails concerning dress fabric and seamstresses for our matching out ts, ticket prices, airline schedules and trying to nd the perfect gifts for our hostesses with the limited resources on Kwaj. Sue Rosoff was in charge of coordinating 19 women, answering all our questions and shepherding us to and around Majuro. Needless to say it was not easy, but she did a beautiful job. Our rst stop on our Air Marshall Island ight was Jaluit, an outer island on the way to Majuro. As we banked to land, I was looking out the window and saw a pretty little dirt and grass road and wondered where the runway began. Boy was I surprised when we landed on it! Having gotten prior word of 19 Kwaj YYWC club members landing in the AMI Dash Eight, the wonderful women of Jaluit met the plane with ower wuts and leis, coconut candy leis, fresh drinking coconuts with straws, hugs and songs! After ve minutes and a group photo, Betty, our sweet stewardess urged us back on board to continue to Majuro. We were all stunned by the outpouring of love, owers and gifts for such a short visit. Little did I know that it was the rst inkling of what the rest of the weekend would bring.

Wednesday, March 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Majuro from Page 3 On Rongrong, members of the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club listen as school children sing a welcome. We arrived in Majuro to more owers and hugs. The Majuro clubs were just as effusive in their greeting, making every woman feel like a queen. After we checked in, we had lunch with Carmen Bigler, president of WUTMI, Mona Levy-Strauss, and a few club of cers and members, to discuss the upcoming events and to schedule massages and tours for our free days. We arranged to rendezvous for an initial “getting to know you” function that evening. There was a lovely buffet of delicious nger foods, like cookies, banana bread, breadfruit and something white and uffy called “iu”, (pronounced ‘you’). “Yum”, I said to my Marshallese neighbor, trying to chat her up. “What is this, and how do you make it?” She replied it was called “iu” and it was from a coconut that had already sprouted. “Well, how do you make it?” I persisted. “You open the coconut.” she said, sure that I wasn’t equipped with all my marbles. “And then?” I queried, wanting the rest of the recipe. “You scoop it out of the coconut.” she said, very carefully as if to a three year old. “And then?” I just wasn’t going to give up. “YOU EAT IT!” she was now laughing, but kindly. I had to laugh with her! I was also very surprised to learn that there are 20 women’s clubs in Majuro. A representative from each club pulled one of our names from a hat so that everybody from Kwaj had at least one sister, if not a whole cadre of women willing to answer any questions, give tours or arrange transportation. Bonds were instantly formed and more hugs were shared. My sweet sisters are Simie Jurelong and Hertha Jermelu and we have promised to keep in touch until they visit next year. My third surprise came when Cris Lindborg, our protocol expert and old hand at island customs, told me that as the only member of the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club’s executive board who could come, I was expected to be the spokesperson at these gatherings. Anyone who knows me at all knows I would rather have a root canal than public speak. But Cris wasn’t brooking any excuses. Much to my Club members do an impromptu Hokey Pokey dance at the Marshall Islands Resort Enra Restaurant.

Maggie Peter and “sister” Molly Hunt join forces to weave baskets. surprise, I survived, meant every word and made it through a thank you without being too tongue-tied. The evening ended with plans to meet in the lobby at 8 a.m. sharp – American time, not Marshallese timeto drive to the boat landing for our trip to Rongrong. Rongrong is an outer island off of the north end of Majuro Island, across from Laura. There is a boarding school there as well as about ten families who live on the island. After a scenic drive for half an hour, we waited on the beach for our boats to pick us up. The group from Kwaj had sporting equipment for the children and the Majuro women had lunch for them as well as rice and other food supplies. It was a wet and rocky ride, but we arrived safe and sound. There are about two hundred students, both boys and girls, grades nine through twelve who assembled with a guitar and the sweetest voices in the world. After several wonderful songs, speeches and prayers, we were told our agenda…if we wanted lunch we had to make our plate, or enra basket, open our coconut and prepare the breadfruit! Hertha and Simie taught me to weave my plate, and also to make a basket with a handle. I didn’t fare too well opening my coconut, but I did learn rst hand how to “prepare” that favorite of mine, “iu”. I did master consuming large quantities of warm-from-the-coals breadfruit, and we took a walking tour of the grounds. The most beautiful buffet was served of local sh that the boys had caught for our visit, breadfruit xed numerous ways, pumpkin in coconut and, of course, rice. It was a real banquet and once again the kids serenaded us. I got the nod again from Cris to say something, and did I get choked up! The women’s club on Kwaj works pretty hard all year to raise money for education for the Marshall Islands and Micronesia (more than $75,000/ year) and this day on Rongrong with these beautiful children and our very patient sisters was our best reward. Our Majuro sisters sang some songs back to the children and we all joined in for “You Are My Sunshine,” in English. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house and every heart was very full. After another wet ride home and quick showers, we met at RRE at the Tide Table restaurant for great platters of ahi sashimi and another feast. And as if the day wasn’t long enough, we ended up at the nightclub Awa Zero, dancing the night away. Nica Wase, club proprietress, introduced all of the Kwaj women to our Irojlaplaps Imata Kabua and Anjua Loeak. Sunday was our free day and I had scheduled a morning of diving with the Yokwe Divers. My dive buddy, Mary Ellen Gibson, and I had the boat all to ourselves, along with our guide TJ and the driver. We did a leisurely wall dive and then a lagoon-side dive featuring a neon pink anemone and three lion sh. It


Wednesday, March 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Majuro from Page 5 Thelma Murphy, Sara Stepchew, Bella Ataran and Atmita Jonathan gather as a Rongrong student demonstrates how to bake breadfruit. (Photo by Sue Rosoff) was a great way to spend the morning and a nice respite from 200 women all competing to be heard. Others booked massages, picnicked on Anemanet Island, went to church with their sisters or just relaxed. Naps were featured that afternoon and we all met in the Enra Restaurant at our hotel, the Marshall Islands Resort, for dinner. American Ambassador Greta Morris joined us, as did about twenty of our Majuro sisters. We all had yet another wonderful meal and a lot of good conversation. Cheri Malloy’s group of sisters started the music off with a personal concert for her. We sang back and forth to each other for many songs. One thing led to another, and we oh-so-musical Americans (including the ambassador) were able to counter with a rousing rendition of the hokey-pokey, complete with all the complex dance moves while the entire restaurant staff looked on. I know how impressed the Marshallese were with our prowess! The evening ended with more laughter and hugs, and the admonition to be at the Long Island Hotel by 8 a.m. (American time) for breakfast hosted by the Leroj’s. Monday was our last full day on Majuro. Breakfast was another great buffet accompanied by potent iced coffees to energize us for power shopping. My roommate Molly Hunt’s Majuro sister is Maggie Peter. Maggie is a librarian at the College of the Marshall Islands and wanted to show us the campus. She was also scheduled to read to the third grade at the public school in Uliga, for Education Week. We asked if we could join her, and she was delighted to bring us along. The children were precious – good listeners and very attentive. Cheri Malloy had us all spellbound as she read two stories. We then toured the Alele Museum, shopped for handicrafts and skirts and had lunch back at the hotel. Molly and I worked on getting the gifts together from the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club while the others wrote and rehearsed songs to sing at the farewell dinner. I read and reread the speech I was to give and enlisted Maryia deBrum to translate what I was going to say. We all convened by the pool at the hotel around 7:30 p.m., the Kwaj ladies decked out in matching dresses. The Majuro clubs put out a huge buffet of incredible dishes. Well over 200 Marshallese women came, and we were honored by the presence of several traditional leaders, most notably Leroj Atma Zedkaia. Evelyn Lanki was the Mistress of Ceremony and all the clubs were well attended. After moving speeches and stirring dance numbers, we feasted and toasted and watched the clubs each do a dance. Then, it was our turn. I had expected to hate giving my speech, but I found that while I normally like to “ y below the radar” at large functions, I felt I was the luckiest Kwajalein lady there. I had the opportunity to tell everyone how much this weekend meant to me and how beautifully we were treated. I got to thank all of Majuro (or so it seemed), for allowing us to live in their safe country, free from terrorists, and for teaching us how to adopt the island way of life. Never before have I had the simple luxury of taking the time to make new friends and learn new customs as we did this weekend, and indeed our entire time in the Marshalls. While I know all the women in Majuro worked so very hard to make this visit as interesting and smoothly run as possible, right down to the beautiful handmade baskets lled with fruit and juice and delivered to our rooms, I have adopted one of their favorite phrases as my own. “Jab inebata” or “no worries” seems to sum up the trip for me. “Jab inebata” to feeling culturally shy, “jab inebata” to hating making speeches and “jab inebata” to stressing over the little things that just don’t make much difference in the long run. “Jab inebata” and a smile, a song and a hug go a long way toward making new friends and crossing cultural bridges. I am so happy I went and to all my new friends both here on Kwajalein and Majuro, Kommol Tata!

The caveat, according to Gerry Wolf, Community Services chief, is that implementation of the program is based on the needs and wants of the community and that is fully reimbursable. “If KRS determines that all-day kindergarten is necessary, they are approved,” Wolf said. “Any additional costs must be reimbursed by customers.” Wolf added that the letter from USAKA is not an indication of what the command wants, but support of what is determined to be “correct or necessary for this community.” “Command review is complete and a letter [has been] issued to KRS from USAKA contracts. It’s now back with KRS to solve,” he said. Friday’s letter is in response to a rough order of magnitude submitted by KRS in December following a recommendation by the School Advisory Council to pursue all-day kindergarten. Wolf said that the data received indicated any change or extension to the existing kindergarten program would be equivalent to the cost of one teacher. “If there is an educational need/requirement/desire from the community, it’s a decision that KRS has to make,” Wolf said.
