The small Yami tribe lives on Lan Yu island, situated 45 sea miles southwest of Taiwan's main Island in the Philippine Sea.

For centuries, a staple part of their nutrition has been flying fish, and ancient rules and taboos govern their catching and preparation. A Yami’s most precious prossession is his boat. The wooden boats, with a high-raised front part, are crafted entirely by hand and are decorated very ornately. Centuries-old traditions are still lived and breathed at Lan Yu, and are handed down to the next generation.
