Between 1946 and '58, the United States detonated 67 nuclear bombs in the Marshall Islands, an archipelago of coral atolls in the South Pacific. Many people were displaced by the weapons tests. Babies were born looking "like jellyfish." Cancer rates went up.

Today, as many as a third of all Marshallese live in the US—nearly 3,000 of them in the small city of Enid, Oklahoma. One of them is Terry Mote. Mote is a relentless jokester and an excellent cook.
