"L̗iok tūt bok"
"Liok tūt bok" is a Marshallese proverb. From the collection "Jabōnkōnaan in M̗ajel̗ complied by Stone, Kowata and Joash: "Pandanus roots grab deep through sand to hold firmly...The understanding is that once the roots are penetrated deeply into the coral, they will remain for an indefinite time. Traditionally, this term signifies strong footings of a beginning."
We believe that like the roots of the pandanus tree the next generation of Marshallese must also be rooted in the land.
