Description: For the Marshallese people, the coconut tree called ni, is a staple of sustainability for life on the islands. Ni is used for food, oil, shelter, baskets, traditional medicine, cooking and decoration. Join the Wodde Jippel Group and learn about their culture, traditions and how to weave a beautiful floor mat called Jeinai.

Artist Bio: Wodde Jippel means people coming together.
