The Customary Law and Language Commission (CLLC) in partnership with the Ministry of Education will be hosting a cultural event on Thursday evening, March 26, at CMI promoting Marshallese language and culture.  The program will be in two parts: cultural displays in the old library from 5:00-9:00 pm and, at 6:00 pm, short speeches from participating organizations, including WAM, at the basketball court. A bento dinner will be served in the old library until 9 p.m.

The event is intended to explain the importance of Marshallese language and culture in bilingual education and will introduce CLLC’s Bilingual and Bicultural Education Project in support of revised MOE Language Education Policy.

This event is open to the public.  Come to the old library to see WAM’s display of traditional Marshallese products including stick charts, ceremonial paddles, and model canoes .
