Shaine BenkimThe first interviews of the Marshallese Oral History Project are now available on our MOHP page along with corresponding multimedia. A permanent website, which will be available in May, 2015, will include a searchable database, Marshallese transcripts, English translations, and supplemental media.

The MOHP is an ambitious, multi-year project to record and archive individual stories of Marshallese traditional and contemporary society.  Members of the MOHP team include: Dr. Jessica Schwartz (Humanities Scholar), Dr. April Brown (Project Director), Albious Latior (primary interviewer), and Benetick Kabua Maddison (primary transcriber/translator).

This first phase of the MOHP was funded in part through a grant by the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  To contribute to the project, please visit our Crowdwise fundraising site.
