Overview of Traditional Men's Meeting House (Faeluw)

In every village in Yap, there are two types of community meeting places called P'eebaey and Faeluw. A P'eebaey is open to all men, women and children.

A Faeluw is a fisheries building similar to a P'eebaey in construction but only open to the male population and usually built on the shore. Without using nails, large wooden poles and beams are tied up with the coconut fiber ropes which give the structure strength, flexibility and decoration.

P'eebaey and Faeluw are built on large stone platforms, which can also serve as a meeting place or a clssroom where young people are taught the traditional way of life, local folklore and the prevalent customs.

"Snorkeling was very good. Go out towards the point on the Caribbean side, and then come back towards the white buoy. The sea wall drops off so deep that you can't see the bottom, only a bright blue glow. Very cool!
