A new textbook, Etto nan Raan Kein, hot off of Hawaii's Bess Press, traces the history of the Marshall Islands, with "a Marshallese perspective in addition to foreign accounts."
Etto nan Raan Kein: A Marshall Islands History text is a first draft of what will become "a more Marshallese-centered representation of life and events that are significant to the people of the Marshall Islands," said author Julianne Walsh.
This Virtual Town Hall Discussion Forum, established by request, hopes to encourage feedback about the first edition and will allow for contributions from the community members and cultural experts.

To comment, you have to read the book. The cost is $63.71, plus shipping.
Suggest RMI MOE initially buy a few copies for school libraries and then ask knowledgable folks to take turns borrowing and submitting comments.

US Ambassador to the Marshall Islands Martha Campbell, as quoted by MI Journal, 13 May 2011, pg 4
