The Project 2 report is in the process of being written and will become available to the public for review at the Yap State Historic Preservation Office upon completion of the draft.
These months were devoted to oral history collection throughout Yap. On this particular day, I saw blue skies with lots of greenery and enjoyed my ‘office’ view with my new friends! The picture below represents the way oral histories are usually collected on Yap… a couple people at a time and in a circle at a pebaey (public meeting house).
Project 2 finally embarks on oral history collection! Project 2 is entitled “Intensive Ethnographic Survey of Social Relationships and Groupings in Yapese Socio-political Organization.”
