Cultural Days 2013

     Last year, we had only been here a few months and the FSM celebrated Founders Day and had a cultural event all day.   Dancers came from all over Micronesia, from Yap, Chuuk, Kosrae and Pohnpei and most of the outer Islands. It was amazing, we only got a few pictures last year.
    This year we were able to go, but only for an hour, so we only got to see a few things. It was great. Here are some of the pictures of the Dancers, Handicrafts they make, food they eat. We love cultural days.
Local Food

Hand made purses, made out of the tops of soda cans

Dancers, getting ready to dance

Breadfruit, cooking on the fire

Cynthia Seiola and her little sister, just before they danced

How you husk a coconut

Each dance tells a story, these girls are the singers and story tellers with the
Rythem sticks
