Breaking the Shell presents the journey of Captain Korent Joel, who, having been forced into exile from the near apocalyptic thermonuclear Bravo test of 1954, has reconnected to his ancestral maritime heritage and forged an unprecedented path toward becoming a navigator Paralleling the Hawaiian renaissance that centered on Nainoa Thompson learning from Satawalese navigator Mau Piailug, the beginnings of the Marshallese voyaging revitalizationa collaborative, community based project spanning the fields of anthropology, history, and oceanographyinvolved blending scientific knowledge systems, resolving ambivalence in nearly forgotten navigational techniques, and deftly negotiating cultural protocols of knowledge use and transmission Through Captain Korents own voyaging trial, he and a group of surviving mariners from Rongelap are, against one of the darkest hours in human history, breaking the shell of their prime identity as nuclear refugees to begin recovering their most intimate of connections to the sea Ultimately these efforts would inaugurate the return of the traditional outrigger voyaging canoe for the greater Marshallese nation, an achievement that may work toward easing ethnic tensions abroad and ensure cultural survival in their battle against the looming climate changeinduced rising ocean Drawing attention to cultural rediscovery, revitalization, and resilience in Oceania, the Marshallese are once again celebrating their existence as a people born to the rhythms of the sea.
