  • Hey the Marshall Island is located in the Micronesia Region in Pacific and so we are too micronesian. Micronesia Region stretch from the Mariana islands and Palau in the northwest to the Nauru and kiribati islands down Southeast.So,that make us part of Micronesia and that tell us that we're Micronesian too just like Hawaii and Samoa to be Polynesia because of their geographic location.

    Although this thread is on Marshallese Royal Family, I would just like to clarify some things mentioned about the FSM that are not accurate.

    I think much of the FSM holds on to their cultural value, whether good or bad, they still do. 

    Pohnpei and Yap strongly exercise the power of their traditioal chiefs and has high recognition and respect in their respective communities. Their voices are heard and their highly respected.

    Chuuk and Kosrae may not be as great, but within the communities there are cultural practices that one must always abide by at all times. Just that most people who come to Chuuk or Kosrae stay within the confined cetral activities in town, let's say.

  • Marshallese are micronesians. in the pacific you are classified as either polynesian, melanesian, micronesian, or australian. anyways we come from one pacific!
    -now back to the real discussion, yes the marshallese kings and queens (irooj and lerooj) still exists. i should know this as my father is the eldest son of (iroojlaplap) manini kabua who is the eldest son of (iroojlaplap) joba kabua who is the eldest son of (iroojlaplap) lojelok kabua, thus making me a direct descendant of Kabua Kabua the Great. 
    so there you have it proof that the marshallese still have their kings and queens. and the reason why was because the marshallese loved their leaders and respected them. growing up i was taught that almost all the kings (my grandfathers) served and loved their people, much as the people served and loved them.
    Pbien16 just cause the father or the fathers father was a chief it dont automatically makes a person a chief. Our titles,lands and inheritance we get them thru our mother. Marshall islands is a matrelinage society, it means the bloodline and linage is inherited from a women. To be a irooj Biio/irooj lap lap(Paramount Chief) both parents must be pure blooded chiefs. Only in ratak will you find a chief that is of pure blood pedigree. The kabuas are not of pure blood no more,their blood has been mixed with common(ri-jerbal) blood. The loeks who are of the same family as the kabuas still have their pedigree. The loeaks should be the leaders of the ralik cause their chiefly blood is still intact while the kabuas have lost their AO(sacred rights)they are half blood and the young generation of kabuas now days are only kabuas in name only cause the newest generation of kabuas nowadays their blood is so diluted their blood is called berkat(mud)blood.
  • Just cause your father is the son of a chief it don't automatically make you or your dad chiefs too. It all depends if your grandfather married a chiefess or your dad married another chiefess. Plus the title won't be inherited thru you dad but thru your mother.
    If your mother is a commoner and your father is a chief then you will be a will only be a chief in name only but you have inherited the commoners title if your mother is a commoner. The kabuas are trying to change our customs by trying to switching Marshallese customs from a matrelinage to patrelinege one. They now want to make RMI a society that bloodlines inheritance and title pass from father to children. Why cause they want the titles and authority to remain with them. They want to change our Manit(customs) all because of money. That is why I said we should get rid of the house chiefs in the government,get rid of the chiefly system in both Ratak&Ralik chain.
  • And who is gonna get rid of them? You Stonez!? It was thru war that irooj laplap kabua won the right to be the paramount chief of the Ralik chain! A war was fought between the royal clans and the kabuas won, it was your freaking clan the mokauleej's who were his strongest supporter's back in the days and still now to this day that the kabua's are supported by your clan. Would your clan oust them now days??? NO they will not! No one would even support you now. Know your place Stonez!
  • Its not gonna happen because marshallese do love their manit and its vested in our connstitution. Stonez in ayways, is right about the matrelinage society. These Islands belongs to women, highest authority comes from the women, and both Loeak and Kabua inherited their power from their mother through their mothers clan ( irooj clan). Kabua or Loeak did not fight for these islands in the ralik, they inherited the power thru their great grantfather irojlaplap  Laninni of the irooj clan who happened to be the  younger brother of their great,great,grandmother .. the two clans who fought  for these islands wer of the Irooj clan  vs the Jemeluit combine with the Tilan clans which began at Kwajalein atoll and ended at Ebon Atoll and the Irooj won that war to becam the paramount cheif of the Ralik chain.. Irojlaplap Laninni, his mother of the Irooj chief clan and his father of the Errubra of the Irooj chiefly clans of Namdrik.. this is the only war for the Ralik chain, and it was waged by the Jemeluit but lost...

    Actually both my mother and father is from a royal family. My mother has no jowi because she is the great granddaughter of Leroj Rebeka. My mothers grandmother, (jirep) is my dads grand mother (jauni) older sister. So
    Technically my mother and father are cousins because they both come from the Same great grandmother who is Rebeka.
    Joba was my fathers grandfather.
  • When joba was about to get married, his mother stopped the marriage and told her servants to set sail to Rebekas island and bring back a daughter of Rebeka so that the daughter of Rebeka and joba could get married. When they went to the island all the daughters of Rebeka has already been married. Except for one which was the youngest (jauni). So they brought Bubu Jauni back, and at the time she was at the age of 8 - 10. So they waited until she was 20. Thus they got married and their first-born was manini Kabua. Who is my grandfather.
  • I am no bwirak. And I don't want our customs to simply vanish and die out. Our islands have held the traditions long enough even till this day. And let's not corrupt it! Last thing I want is to see a marshallese unable to understand a single marshallese word because he wasn't taught to speak it.

  • I am not a fan of that word "Servant.!!" it is disgrace to even use in here. 
  • The clan which Rebecca belong to lost the war and were displaced by the Kabuas. Rebecca's family and the Kabuas are of the same lineage but different branches. Rebecca's clan and Kabuas clan came from two women who were sisters, Rebecca's clan or bwij is older then the kabuas. The kabuas challenged them for dominance and a war was fought between this two clan. The kabuas eventually won the war and in doing so displaced the clan which Rebecca is from. The clan which Rebecca belong to is called Irooj. The irooj clan lost their titles and chiefly status when they lost the war of "Kabjen karkar Jen Lon Nan lal". That is why the clan which Rebecca is from Ejibakwe(displaces) no longer are they threated as chiefs and no tributes and homage is given to them.
  • You two need an arbitrator or mediation to solve your clan discussion. Sound like you people are still fighting over the land in Laura im bar land eo ilo turul bij en!!
