"Jeju Haenyeo: Stewards of the Sea," the first English handbook on Jeju haenyeo (diving women), has been published by Jeju Sea Grant Center. The book, designed and edited by The Jeju Weekly, was written by Dr. Anne Hilty.
Professor Byung Gul Lee, director of Jeju Sea Grant Center, says in the foreword that Jeju haenyeo have yet to be fully appreciated and the book will help increase international recognition of the unique culture.
"This book is intended to be a guide book for studying and understanding Jeju 's female-oriented spiritual culture. In that aspect, I sincerely hope this book will aid in the UNESCO inscription of Haenyeo culture as a world intangible heritage, and becomes one of the first milestones in understanding how Jeju haenyeo culture can shape Jeju 's historical identity. I believe that the visionary builds what dreamers imagined. We all are ambitious visionaries, and I am confident that our shared dream will come true,” writes Lee.
