The people of Belau, as the islanders call their homeland, may appear to be among the most Westernized of all Micronesians in their casual American togs and baseball caps. However, they still frown upon skimpy beach attire away from the water, and most homes and many public buildings require that you leave your shoes near the door. Furthermore, many traditional rites have been retained over the years, such as those for a first-born child, and village chiefs still command an important role in the social hierarchy. Most Palauans are Christian, with the Catholic and Protestant churches well established and Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh-Day Adventists and Bahais gaining in membership. Modekngei is a revived form of the indigenous religion, which also shows up in traditions such as leaving a light on to ward off spooks. Staples of the traditional Palauan diet include coconut milk and meat (copra), cassava (tapioca), sweet potatoes and all sorts of fish and seafood. Japanese and American mealtime influences are common. Although not as prevalent as it is on Yap, many Palauans chew betel nut, which when mixed with lime powder produces copious amounts of bright red spit. Old-time chewers are noted by their red teeth, newcomers by the stains on their chins and shirts. Palauan is spoken at home and in casual situations, while English is more common in business and government. Schools teach both languages, so most Palauans are bilingual from an early age. The South-West Islanders speak some Sonsorolese and Tobian languages. Islanders have borrowed the Hawaiian term

Shuster Reflecting their close ties with the United States, citizens of the Republic of Palau held a public ceremony to pay tribute to the seven astronauts lost when space shuttle Columbia disintegrated on its homeward journey. In response to the Iraq war, the republic joined President Bush's Coalition of the Willing, with President Remengesau's offering Palau's existing facilities as additional staging areas for military operations. In other international affairs, Mr Remengesau hosted the second Micronesian Presidents' Summit in late July. Joined by President Leo Falcam of the Federated States of Micronesia and President Kessai Note of the Marshall Islands, the chief executives of the freely associated states discussed a host of issues and released a joint communiqué at the end of their talks. The statement called for the continuation of open immigration to the United States and requested technical assistance from the United States in the area of security and anti-terrorism measures. A few weeks later, Remengesau led a delegation to theThirty-thirdPacific Island Forum meeting in Fiji. He presented two major proposals. The first called on the assembled nations to ease travel entry requirements for each other's citizens. The second initiative called for greater support and progress in adopting renewable energy sources such as solar, hydro, wind, and ocean thermal energy conversion. Remengesau stated that his islands' total dependence on foreign sources for fossil fuels diverted funds from much needed development projects.

    Palau: Nuclear-Free charter under threat
    While the United States presses North Korea to stop developing nuclear weapons, it is contradicting these very principles in Palau, where it is trying to get the government to accept a Compact of Free Association that would annul the Pacific nation's nuclear-free charter. (414.4102) WISE Amsterdam - Fourteen years ago, Palau - a group of islands some 800 kilometers south-east of the Philippines - passed the world's first national constitution out-lawing toxic, chemical, biological and radioactive weapons and material on its soil. Since then, Washington has been pressuring Palau to hold one referendum after another to amend that constitution, which had been approved by 92 percent of the nation's 14,000 people. "Over the years, as the principle of self-determination has been twisted and deformed into a grotesque travesty of democratic process. The Palauan electorate has moved from elation, pride, hope and empowerment to disillusionment, cynicism and apathy," the International Committee on Palauan Self-Determination said in a pamphlet prepared before the last referendum in November 1993. In an apparent victory for Washington, Palauan President Kuniwo Nakamura said in May he had agreed with U.S. officials to implement the compact with the United States by October 1. But a group of Palauan women told the United Nations Trustee-ship Council that the November 1993 referendum authorizing him to proceed with the compact was illegal and that there were still environmental matters to be addressed. Palau is the last of the United Nations' original 11 Trust Territories.

    Palau is the last word in underwater wonderlands. It also features Micronesia's richest flora and fauna, both on land and beneath the waves, and what's more, they released an Elvis Presley postage stamp a full year before the USA got around to doing so. Not only does Palau offer a central metropolis for all your (little) big city needs, but you'll never once have to pick your way through commuters on your way home from the beach. Bring your binoculars as well as your beach towel - you're going to like what you see.

    Spending Time on PALAU
    Text and photos by David Tracy
    Far East Traveler - March 1993
    Palau is known the world over for its underwater marvels, and for good reason. Many well-traveled aquanauts consider it the best dive spot on earth. Ocean currents that sweep alongside the islands bring a wealth of micro-organisms that attract little fish, which attract bigger fish, and so on until visiting some dive spots is like dropping into a crowded aquarium. But there's more to Palau than meets the goggle or mask. With a rich culture meeting the changing times in paradise, Palau offers the adventurous traveler a grand variety of things to do and see above sea level. It hasn't been developed for dry-land tourists; visitors are almost expected to head straight for the water and then under. But the curious and resourceful traveler can spend days in happy exploration. The 400 mile long string of islands offer teeming jungles, majestic waterfalls, isolated beaches, and friendly villages all of which one can visit without fear of bumping into a nuclear warhead. Little Palau's non-nuclear stand, which it proudly maintained despite lucrative development offers from the United States, is a measure of its commitment to preserve a rare environment and way of life being devoured in the rest of the world. One way to begin exploring Palau is by calling Sam's Tours . Sam, an American who came to Palau just out of high school and still can't think of a good reason to return, makes his living by leading dive tours. But he knows that even hard-core divers can't stay under all the time (you'd get the bends). He's also driven by a healthy curiosity of his own about the fascinating place he's chosen to live in. So his tour service has expanded to include just about any part of the territory people want to visit.

    Probably the most noticeable aspect of Palauan culture is the people's connection with the sea. Traditionally, it was the duty of the family to go to sea to harvest fish and battle against enemy villages. As the sea was the source of their livelihood, men developed a close relationship with the waters of Palau, becoming versant in the currents and the phases of the moon and the behavior of the fish they sought to put on the table.
    Women generally stayed on land or along the shallow reefs surrounding the islands, rather than combat the open ocean, providing foundation for the family. Their days were largely spent tending to their homes, family and fields where they grew taro.
    Palauan villages were, and still are, organized around 10 clans reckoned matrilineally. A council of chiefs from the 10 ranking clans governed the village, and a parallel council of their female counterparts held a significant advisory role in the division and control of land and money.
