To support public study of the effects of migration on the cultures and democratization of the Northern Mariana Islands through the collection and dissemination of materials and knowledge about the migration of the Carolinian peoples to the Northern Mariana Islands, public forums about the ways the Northern Marianas participates in American democracy, and a festival of short films by local artists documenting the effects of migration on the community.

This project explores the effects of migration on the cultures and democratization of the Northern Mariana Islands (NMI). Movement of people and a free-flowing exchange of ideas and social practices have long influenced the development of the United States, and this project seeks to document, preserve and celebrate aspects of NMI history and culture that incorporate this tradition. Three stand-alone components - "Carolinians in the Marianas," Colony to Commonwealth: Cultural and Social Influences in NMI Governance," and "Migration in the Northern Marianas: Stories Of the People, By the People, For the People" will provide the community with a wide range of opportunities to discuss unique historical and current issues relating to our modern civic culture as American citizens and Pacific residents.
