The Island and People of Saipan

Hafa Adai!!! I lived and worked on the island of Saipan from 2002 through 2005. Saipan is one of 14 islands in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) located in the Western Pacific Ocean. Saipan lies about 1,200 miles south of Tokyo, Japan and 1,500 miles east of Manila, Philippines. The CNMI is part of the United States. The population of Saipan is composed of Chamoros, Carolinians, Palauans, Chukese, Philippinos, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Thais, Bangladeshes, USA mainlanders, and others. Chamoros and Carolinians (indigenous population) are US citizens. I have included a few photos from the island of Rota. Rota is a neighbor island to Saipan and part of the CNMI.
