The residents were evacuated in September once again. In , there were 2, total individuals; 1, islanders living on Kiji, in Majuro, on Ejit, on other Marshall Islands or atolls, and in the United States.
Of those, 81 were among those who left the atoll in As of February , there were living Bikini islanders: Of that number, 31 lived on Bikini in Maddison has lived on Bikini Island since His grandfather was one of the original residents relocated in Department of Energy with soil monitoring, testing cleanup methods, mapping the wrecks in the lagoon, and accompanying visitors on dives.
The Bikini islanders were historically loyal to a king, or Irojj. After the Marshall Islands separated from the United States in the Compact of Free Association in , its constitution established a bicameral parliament.
The upper house is only a consultative body. It consists of traditional leaders Iroijlaplap , known as the Council of Irooj , who advise the lower house on traditional, cultural issues.
The lower house or Nitijela consists of 33 senators elected by 24 electoral districts. Universal suffrage is available to all citizens 18 years of age and older.
The 24 electoral districts correspond roughly to each Marshall Islands atoll. The lower house elects the president who, with the approval of the Nitijela, selects a cabinet from among members of the Nitijela.
Four district centers in Majuro, Ebeye, Jaluit, and Wotje provide local government. Each district elects a council and mayor and may appoint local officials.
The district centers are funded by the national government and by local revenues. There are two political parties.
Elections are held every four years. In Nishma Jamore was elected mayor of the district representing the Bikini people.
Council members are elected from two wards on Ejit Island three seats and Kili Island 12 seats. The local government works with a U.
Human beings have inhabited the Bikini Atoll for about 3, years. Army Corps of Engineers archaeologist Charles F. Carbon-dating placed the age of the artifacts at between , B.
Other discoveries on Bikini and Eneu island were carbon-dated to between 1, B. The first Westerner to see the atoll in the mids was the Baltic German captain and explorer Otto von Kotzebue , sailing in service of the Russian Empire.
He visited three times during and Bikini islanders were recruited into developing the copra trade during the German colonial period. They first introduced the islanders to Christianity in , which gradually displaced their native religion.
This left Spain with the remainder of the Spanish East Indies in the Pacific, about islands that were tiny and sparsely populated.
After the loss of the administrative center of Manila, the minor islands became ungovernable and, after the entire loss of two Spanish fleets in , indefensible.
The Spanish government sold the islands to Germany. The islands were then placed under control of German New Guinea.
The Japanese administered the island under the South Pacific Mandate , but mostly left local affairs in the hands of traditional local leaders until the start of World War II.
At the outset of the war, the Marshall Islands suddenly became a strategic outpost for the Japanese. They built and manned a watchtower on the island, an outpost for the Japanese headquarters on Kwajalein Atoll, to guard against an American invasion of the islands.
The islands remained relatively unscathed by the war until February , when in a bloody battle , the American forces captured Kwajalein Atoll. There were only five Japanese soldiers on Bikini and they committed suicide rather than allow themselves to be captured.
For the Japanese, the battle represented the failure of the beach-line defense. Japanese defenses became prepared in depth, and the battles of Peleliu, Guam, and the Marianas proved far more costly to the U.
The nuclear weapons testing at Bikini Atoll program was a series of 23 nuclear devices detonated by the United States between and at seven test sites.
The test weapons were detonated on the reef itself, on the sea, in the air and underwater  with a combined fission yield of Truman directed Army and Navy officials to secure a site for testing nuclear weapons on American warships.
While the Army had seen the results of a land-based explosion, the Navy wanted to know the effect of a nuclear weapon on ships. They wanted to determine whether ships could be spaced at sea and in ports in a way that would make nuclear weapons ineffective against vessels.
Bikini was distant from both regular sea and air traffic, making it an ideal location. Wyatt, the military governor of the Marshall Islands, asked the Micronesian inhabitants of the atoll to voluntarily and temporarily relocate so the United States government could begin testing atomic bombs for "the good of mankind and to end all world wars.
In February, Navy Seabees helped them to disassemble their church and community house and prepare to relocate them to their new home.
On 7 March , the residents gathered their personal belongings and saved building supplies. Navy landing ship to the uninhabited Rongerik Atoll ,  which was one-sixth the size of Bikini Atoll.
The Navy left them with a few weeks of food and water which soon proved to be inadequate. The weapons testing began with the Operation Crossroads series in July This was the only trust ever granted by the U.
Despite the promise to "protect the inhabitants", from July through July , the residents of Bikini Atoll were left alone on Rongerik Atoll and were starving for lack of food.
A team of U. Press from around the world harshly criticized the U. Navy for ignoring the people. Harold Ickes , a syndicated columnist, wrote "The natives are actually and literally starving to death.
In January , Dr. Leonard Mason, an anthropologist from the University of Hawaii, visited Rongerik Atoll and was horrified at what he found.
One resident of Rongerik commented, . The fish were not fit to eat there. They were poisonous because of what they ate on the reef.
Then we started asking these men from America [to] bring us food Mason requested that food be brought to the islanders on Rongerik immediately along with a medical officer.
The Navy then selected Ujelang Atoll for their temporary home and some young men from the Bikini Atoll population went ahead to begin constructing living accommodations.
Trust Authorities changed their mind. In March , malnourished Bikini islanders were relocated again to Kwajalein Atoll. They were given tents on a strip of grass alongside the airport runway to live in.
It also lacks a coral reef. In June, the Bikini community chose two dozen men to accompany eight Seabees to Kili to begin construction of a village.
In November , the residents, now totaling individuals, moved to Kili Island,  at 0. They soon learned they could no longer fish the way they had on Bikini Atoll.
Kili lacked the calm, protected, lagoon. Kili did not provide enough food for the transplanted residents. After their relocation to Kili, the Bikini residents continued to suffer from inadequate food supplies.
Kili is a small island without a lagoon, and most of the year it is exposed to 10 to 20 foot 3. Trust Authorities airdropped food onto Kili.
The residents were forced to rely on imported USDA rice and canned goods and had to buy food with their supplemental income. During and , ships dispatched by the U.
Trust Territory continually experienced problems unloading food because of the rough seas around the island, leading to additional food shortages.
The people once again suffered from starvation and the shortages increased in A few people moved. Three families moved there to produce copra for sale and other families rotated living there later on.
In June , based on scientific advice that the radiation levels were sufficiently reduced, President Lyndon B. Johnson promised the Bikini Atoll family members living on Kili and other islands that they would be able to return to their home.
The Atomic Energy Commission cleared radioactive debris from the island, and the U. Trust Territory was in charge of rebuilding structures and replanting crops on the atoll.
But shortly afterward the Trust Territory ended regular air flights between Kwajalein Atoll and Bikini Atoll which seriously impeded progress.
Coconut trees were finally replanted in , but the AEC learned that the coconut crabs retained high levels of radioactivity and could not be eaten.
The Bikini Council voted to delay a return to the island as a result. Three extended families, eventually totaling about people, moved back to their home island in despite the risk.
But 10 years later, a team of French scientists performed additional tests on the island and its inhabitants. They found some wells were too radioactive for use and determined that the pandanus and breadfruit were also dangerous for human consumption.
Urine samples from the islanders on Bikini Atoll showed low levels of plutonium and As a result, the Bikini community filed a federal lawsuit seeking a complete scientific survey of Bikini and the northern Marshall Islands.
Inter-departmental squabbling over responsibility for the costs delayed the work for three years. Women were experiencing miscarriages , stillbirths , and genetic abnormalities in their children.
Plants and trees readily absorb potassium as part of the normal biological process, but since caesium is part of the same group on the periodic table , it is absorbed by plants in a very similar chemical process.
The islanders who unknowingly consumed contaminated coconut milk were found to have abnormally high concentrations of caesium in their bodies.
The Trust Territory decided that the islanders had to be evacuated from the atoll a second time. In , a few Bikini elders traveled to Eneu island to reestablish old property lines.
Construction crews began building a hotel on Bikini, docks, roads, and installed generators, desalinators, and power lines.
A packed coral and sand runway still exists on Eneu Island. The Bikini Atoll Divers was established to provide income.
But in , council learned that the US Environmental Protection Agency standard required reducing radiation levels to 15 millirems, substantially less than the US Department of Energy standard of millirems.
This discovery significantly increased the potential cost of cleanup and stalled the effort. As a result of the military use of the island and the failed resettlement, the islands are littered with abandoned concrete bunkers and tons of heavy equipment, vehicles, supplies, machines, and buildings.
The radiological survey of the northern Marshalls, compelled by the lawsuit, began only after the residents were removed  and returned to Kili Island.
As of [update] , the tiny 0. They must rely on contributions from a settlement trust fund to supplement what they produce locally. The islanders operate several small stores out of their homes to supply nonperishable food items like salt, Tabasco, candy, and canned items.
A generator provides electricity. Children attend elementary school on Kili through eighth grade. Toward the end of the eighth grade, students must pass a standardized test to gain admission to attend public high school in Jaluit or Majuro.
Beginning in the resettled residents of Kili Island began to experience periods of ocean flooding during king tides aggravated by the effects of global warming.
The highest point of Kili Island is only 3 metres 9. Ocean waves have covered portions of the island at least five times from to , contaminating the wells on the island.
The runway servicing the island is unusable during and after rains and ocean flooding because it becomes extremely muddy.
It is a remarkable environment, quite odd. The area has become, in effect, something of an unplanned sanctuary — as has also occurred in Europe in the Chernobyl exclusion zone  — where the effects of radiation on animal life is being tested.
Making an observation similar to that following the Chernobyl disaster , where serious animal deformities and mutations were abundant only in the immediate aftermath,  Palumbi suggested that, as "fish have relatively short life-spans, it is possible the worst-affected fish died off many decades ago The Story of Radiation , Timothy Jorgensen reported on the increased cancer risk, especially for leukemia and thyroid cancers , amongst inhabitants of nearby islands.
The inhabitants of the Marshall Islands , particularly those closest to Bikini Atoll , were exposed to high levels of radiation. The highest levels of radiation exposure were found in the areas of local fallout.
The fallout produced from nuclear tests can affect the human populations internally or externally. External irradiation is from penetrating gamma rays that come from particles on the ground.
The levels of external radiation exposure can be reduced if one was indoors because buildings act as a shield. Inhalation of radioactive fallout and epidermal absorption are the primary means of irradiation.
However most exposure is from consumption of food that has been contaminated through fallout. The people of the islands would consume meat or products from animals that had been irradiated, therefore irradiating the consumer.
Many dairy products, such as milk and yogurt, were contaminated as a result of radionuclides landing on pastures. Iodine, a highly radioactive isotope, was ingested or inhaled by many through various forms.
On the Marshall Islands, the detonation of Castle Bravo was the cause of most of the radiation exposure to the surrounding populations. The fallout levels attributed to the Castle Bravo test are the highest in history.
There are also correlations between fallout exposure levels and diseases such as thyroid disease like hypothyroidism.
Populations of the Marshall Islands that received significant exposure to radionuclides have a much greater risk of developing cancer. Populations neighboring the test site were exposed to high levels of radiation resulting in mild radiation sickness of many nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.
Several weeks later, many people began suffering from alopecia hair loss and skin lesions as well. There is a presumed association between radiation levels and female reproductive system functioning.
