Editorial Reviews

Lieweila: A Micronesian Story: Narrated by Cinta Kaipat, a descendant of the first migrants, "The film tells the history of Refalawasch beginning with details of the early migrations and ending with the current situation in which the people from the northern islands now live on a Saipan that has become a Mecca for tourism, cheap Asian labor, and land developers. In this environment, it is difficult for the story of Refalawasch to remain relevant, and yet, as the film shows, there is a continuing effort to keep the story alive. The film's narration is clear and personal. It is the voice of a woman who is part of the story and who works on behalf of her people's interest. Although I can hardly get past its personal appeal to me, I think the film has broad educational value, especially in the context of learning about the struggle of Pacific Island people to hold on to their traditions in the face of wave after wave of economic and cultural colonization."
