It wasn't the first time people on Pohnpei took up arms against foreign rulers. Three times under Spanish rule violence had broken out on the island. But the Sokehs Rebellion against the Germans in 1910 was the last and best known of the outbursts against foreign rule. This uprising was not island-wide, but limited to the Sokehs people. Other sections of Pohnpei may have had their issues, but their quarrels with Sokehs overrode any resentment toward the Germans. Even today Sokehs people sing the elegy of the doomed band of warriors that faced down the Germans.
