The 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Marshallese American Network for Interacting Together, also known as MANIT, is in the United States and the Marshall Islands. Manit means “culture” in the Marshallese language and is at the heart of what it means to be a Marshallese person. The nonprofit was founded by a former Marshall Islands Member of Parliament and Cabinet Minister, a former Marshall Islands Director of the Environment, and a musician & editor from Oregon on August 21, 2021.
To support the identity of Marshallese people through education, advocacy, and cultural exchange.
For the descendants of the Marshall Islands to face the future confidently, with a deep understanding of their own culture and a secure economic footing in the United States, so that they can be a part of the American dream.
We want to educate a cadre of young people in traditional Marshallese culture, leadership skills, and environmental awareness and responsibility.
