The Sokehs Rebellion 15

With the German troops doggedly pursuing them around the island, Pohnpeian warriors began surrendering.  Here several prisoners are being transported to Kolonia on a warship.  It was now four months since the outbreak of the uprising.  The Sokehs warriors had avenged themselves and no longer had the heart for battle.

Sokehs rebellion

By Emelihter | Pohnpei/Poneke | 4 Jul 2024

In 1910 Pohnpeians from Sokehs Island led a rebellion against the Germans. They killed the German district administrator and 3 other Germans. The leaders of the rebellion, 15 men, were massacred and the rest of the Sokehs people were exiled to Palau. This was big news at the time across Europe and the Pacific.
