From Professor Hattori:
This one-hour video is a presentation of the stories of eight Micronesians who have left the islands to take up life in the US. Five of them are men, three are women. Many live in the Hawaii, but others live in mainland US. A few have spent long years in the US military. Some have gone on to run their own businesses. One or two see their main role as caretakers–of their own families and of their fellow island migrants. All have words of advice to offer others who find themselves living abroad. Yet, in the end, the most important thing these individuals have to share with their island people is their own inspiring story.
