On July 22, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues five new stamps celebrating Marshallese Culture the ninth issue in this ongoing 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, navigation and fishing methods, just to name a few. The stamps in this ninth installment of the Marshallese Culture series depict vintage photographs capturing various scenes of Marshallese life: Celebration of Alfonso Capelle's Kemen (c.1910); Three Women Making Pandanus Thatch (c.1918); Men Spearfishing on Reef Oceanside Likiep (c.1914); Men in Boat House Grinding Arrowroot (c.1909); The Boat Vilma Being Launched at Likiep (c.1904).
