The Festival is a joyous celebration of Kosraean culture - old and new.
In addition to celebrating Kosraean culture and traditional skills, the festival commemorates the WWII liberation by Allied forces.
Traditional Sitting Dance
Tying, weaving and carving are the major handicrafts on Kosrae.
Ranging from the purely decorative, like these flower marmars, to the very practical baskets and canoe being tied below.
Of course the farmers and fishermen show off their best products and yes, it's all for sale!
Canoe races, foot races, people watching and tons of other activities make this a VERY busy week.
We found that the clams were being slowly buried in coral rubble and we had to relocate them to a safer place.
The remaining clams were carefully gathered and raised to the boat.
Once on board they were moved to their home.
Local treats - YUMMY! and many other traditional crafts
