Much respect from a Micronesian brotha.

Powerful poem, it gave me chills.

I’m mixed, 50% Chuukese and I used to be ashamed of being Micronesian becuz what other people say about us. But then i realized, being Micronesian is a blessing… Look at our culture, our warrior ancestors; we are Pacific Islanders of Micronesia. Now i don’t care wat anyone has to say. I know what a Micronesian is, these other people don’t. They just know what they hear/see.



Phils Note: This is educational for One and all, even in The 4 corners of the Pacific, We will always class as a Micronesian/Polynesian/Melanesian and Aboriginal…or mixed breed. You will never be one of us- is the saying! Identity ,Culture,Language etc
