Overview of Ethnic Art Institute of Micronesia

The Ethnic Art Institute of Micronesia, a non-profit organization, was established on the Island of Yap, Micronesia in 1994 by the Robert Gumbiner Foundation. The Institute is dedicated to reviving and recreating the indigenous art of Micronesia.

Of the three principal Ethnic divisions of the Pacific, Micronesian Art is less familiar (or unknown) to most individuals, and there are few collectors. Polynesian and the Melanesian art forms are far greater known and more popular. Nevertheless, Micronesians have achieved impressive art forms that were both functional and spiritual, and the Ethnic Art Institute of Micronesia is dedicated to preserving it for future generations.

The Ethnic Art Institute of Micronesia sells all their woodwork and carvings in the hotel gift shop.

Kay J. wrote about Guisi Lighthouse :

"It takes about 40 minute tricycle ride to this 18th century Spanish lighthouse from Alibihod Crossing. The dusty road can be challenging, but it is definitely worth the trip. Climbing the now dilapidated, rusty, not well preserved lighthouse can be very dangerous. Those who dare can marvel at the breathtaking view of Nueva Valencia and the surrounding beaches. I would not recommend taking the risk though. The lighthouse does not look strong enough to hold weight and it could collapse anytime.
