This chapter focuses on the Marshallese and the Chuukese—the largest of the eight U.S.-associated Micronesian subgroups—as they have had significant social, economic, health, and political impact on Hawaiʻi. The last seventy-five years of colonization, westernization, and globalization in Chuuk and the Marshall Islands has had a dynamic effect on their traditional family and social structure. Many Chuukese and Marshallese who have lived through a changing family and social structure in their home islands have recently moved to Hawaiʻi and the U.S. continent. They are again faced with further adjustments to new family and social structures and are evolving a new ethnocultural identity.
