Research project

(Press Release) — Those who participated in the Pacific STAR Center for Young Writers in 2006 titled “We Drank Our Tears: Memories of the Battles for Saipan and Tinian as Told by Our Elders” (Tuten-Puckett, 2004) are invited to take part in a research project conducted by CNMI resident Jennifer Furey Maratita.

Research questions will focus on understanding the impact this project had and its relevance in your life nowadays. The impact of shared narratives across generations in the CNMI are of special concern.

Jennifer Furey Maratita, a Ph.D. candidate in clinical psychology at Walden University, is in the CNMI and conducting research until mid-2017. Should you be interested in participation, know someone who might be interested in participating, or have any questions about the project, please e-mail Jennifer Furey Maratita at or call/text 483-3879.
