Video Description

Micronesia's march toward political self-government was a long and unsteady one. It began as a Trust Territory made up of six districts under US administration. A step forward was taken with the creation of the Congress of Micronesia in 1965. More ground was covered as the congress carried on negotiations with the US through the 1970s over its future political status. Along the way, the Trust Territory dissolved into four groups, each pursuing its own political goals and each with its own flag. Self-government, a distant dream back in the 1960s, is now a reality in Palau, Marshalls, FSM, and CNMI.
