C242 Marshallese Culture III
Issue Date: December 1, 2005
On December 1, 2005, the Marshall Islands Postal Service celebrates the heritage and culture of the Marshallese with new postage stamps. This is the third set
in the Marshallese Culture series.
Even as late as the early 1800s, Western civilization had not yet reached the Marshall Islands. Subsequently, the unique culture and traditions of the
Islanders remained virtually untouched by foreign influences. Over the course of many centuries, however, the proud and eminently resourceful Marshallese developed a rich and fascinating culture
that became apparent in their home-building, clothing styles, religious activities, canoe-construction and fishing method -- just to name a few.
These five stamps are based on vintage
photographs capturing the distinctive culture of the Marshallese, and include: First Catholic Church on Jabwor, Jaluit Atoll (1913); Women on Jaluit Atoll (1902); Canoes in
Jaluit Harbor (c.1905); Nelu and His Wife Ledagoba (c.1895); and An Old Man from Ebon Atoll (1914).
