Home of the Legendary Firewalkers and Birthplace of the Sharkgods

Beqa Lagoon holds unique cultural and traditional knowledge. The awareness of the indigenous history is diminishing, leading to the loss of peoples’ traditional identity.  By encouraging the villagers to sustain local crafts, arts and storytelling, traditional knowledge and skills will be protected.  The program focuses on ecosystem-friendly income sources to benefit both the people and the environment replacing current destructive and unsustainable overexploitation of marine natural resources.
