Ebja[edit]

Because most of the modern Marshallese residents of Ebeye don't have family roots on the island, the American pronunciation has stuck, and everyone uses it, even in Marshallese. Maybe, but isn't the Marshallese name Ebja? This should at least be mentioned. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.162.62.237 (talk) 10:53, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

It was actually not the American authorities who moved the people from Rongelap to Ebeye, it was Greenpeace <Ed> —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.159.132.159 (talk) 22:20, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
