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.

Brion H. wrote about Island Ferry:

"It is a great price, but getting tickets is a pain (must be done in person), the boat can make you seasick, and others have complained about getting bumped or being sold-out or being delayed, so don't make your plans based on the stated schedule. Our personal experience from Fajardo to Vieques was good.
