Iep Jaltok

Poems from a Marshallese Daughter

The University of Arizona Press

Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner raises a call to action as the seas rise over the Marshall Islands. Weaving together history, personal experience, and Marshallese perspectives, the author provides a glimpse into a culture and people that is ancient and resilient—but that is also changing and adapting to each new threat. She uses the power of poetry to demand justice in the face of the devastating effects of climate change on her home island. Iep Jaltok is the first published book of poetry written by a Marshallese author.
