Korea haenyeo смотреть последние обновления за сегодня на .
Korea’s “sea women,” or “haenyeo,” could be disappearing as they face rising sea temperatures and life depletion underwater. The women are part of an ancient tradition of female breadwinners that began on Jeju Island. They played a vital role in the island’s recovery through colonialism and the Cold War. But now, they are on the front lines of the climate crisis. Fewer women on the island are becoming haenyeo mainly because there’s less to harvest. These 50- to 90-year-old women are capable of diving for up to seven hours a day, holding their breath for one to two minutes at a time. For some, free diving is easier than walking. AJ+ producer Anna Kook’s grandmother was a sea woman before she died. She brings us along into the world of haenyeo as she learns what her grandmother’s life may have been like as a young woman. #freediving #korea #jeju Subscribe for more videos: 🤍 Follow us on Instagram: 🤍 Like us on Facebook: 🤍 Follow us on Twitter: 🤍

Every day, Kim Ok Ja dons a wetsuit and snorkel, grabs a fishing spear and a net, and dives into the Pacific Ocean to hunt for conch and sea life that her family can eat or sell. She is 78 years old and shows no sign of slowing down. Based on the Korean island of Jeju, she is one of a dwindling group of women divers known as a “Haenyeo.” This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.

Seven months pregnant and apprehensive of the effect motherhood would have on her career as a professional freediver, Kimi Werner took a trip to the island of Jeju in South Korea to meet her heroes, the haenyeo – a group of freediving and fishing women often regarded as Korea’s first working mother’s whose culture dates back centuries. Expecting her first child, Kimi will explore how the haenyeo represent feminine strength and resilience as a self sufficient sisterhood of diving mothers and grandmothers. As Kimi transitions from a solo underwater adventurist to a mother cultivating a family, she longs to learn from the haenyeo elders - many of which are well into their 70’s and continue to dive. Join Kimi on her journey in Lessons from Jeju, where she gains a deeper understanding of what it means to pass on her own legacy and learns motherhood for a professional athlete isn’t a roadblock but instead a path forward.

제주해녀 UNESCO 등재 기원 특집: 해녀, 그들의 이야기 1편 For hundreds of years, women in Korea's southernmost island of Jeju have made their living harvesting seafood by hand from the ocean floor. They are known as haenyeo, female free-divers who submerge under deep sea without any breathing apparatus. You might picture extraordinary people with extra human powers... but they are not. Always tired and breathless but embodying incredible mental and physical strength they are the sisters, mothers, and grandmothers of the people of Jeju Island. We shed light on the Korean women divers of Jeju Island who have faced the tempestuous tides of history and struggle for economic survival for centuries. I went to meet them... they say "We go to the otherworld to earn money, and return to the earthly world to save our kids." Jeju. Lying 64 kilometers south of the Korean peninsula... the island of Jeju is one of Korea's most popular holiday spots... with its beautiful landscape and mild weather. It's called the Land of Paradise, Hawaii of Korea... but among many things, Jeju has traditionally been referred to as Samdado... or land of three abundances: "roaring winds, magnificent rocks and women." "Not just any woman. But, women who've been free-diving into the sea for centuries and generations to feed the children, to support the family... for survival." On a sunny yet chilly morning in May... 72-year-old Lee Sung-mae and her village sisters... head out for their daily routine. With their diving gear tucked beneath their arms, the elderly women chat as they make their way to a rocky beach on the western side of the island. As they have for 60 years, they wipe their goggles with a fistful of mugwort and jump into the darkness of the deep sea. "Once you dive in the water, you bring back cash. Life was so hard that we couldn't live without harvesting underwater." "There was no other way to making a living. My mother was a haenyeo, my sister-in-law is a haenyeo and I also learned to dive here. From a very young age, we all learned to free-dive." "It's hard work but what can we do? I educated my children with the money earned from harvesting underwater. I sent my kids to college on the mainland doing this." They are haenyeo... female divers of Jeju who take to the ocean as deep as 10, 20 meters... without any special diving or breathing equipment. For centuries, they've braved the treacherous waters of the Korea Strait... using only flippers and goggles as they scour the sea bed for abalone, conch and octopus. These women hold their breath for up to three minutes, withstand intense water pressure... the frigid water temperatures... struggling to improve their bounty in order to make ends meet. The first historical references to the haenyeo can be traced back to the 17th century. "By the 17th century, men were going to sea to fish or work on warships and they never returned, so diving became exclusively women's work. Documents from the late 17th century show women gathering abalone as well as seaweed from the ocean floor." No one knows for sure how the haenyeo became the primary breadwinners of their families... but in a country where Confucianism has left an indelible patriarchal mark everywhere, haenyo culture has long bucked conventional gender roles on the island. When they are not in the ocean, they grow crops and harvest the land, do household work and take care of the children. Seventy-two-year-old Lee is at a relative's house... after a five hour dive. It's a day to perform ancestral rites... the women in the neighborhood get together to help out... as even after an exhausting day underwater, THIS too is the women's work. "Women have a lot of work to do in Jeju. We give birth to children, feed them, send them to school... We go harvesting underwater, farm when we're not in the ocean. Preparing for these ancestral rites is also our job." "Jeju women have always been strong and economically productive. When we first got married, my wife used to bring back up to 100 kilograms of abalone and conch. Sometimes I feel bad that men just stay at home when the women are in the icy water. But, it's always been that way here." Traditionally a job handed down from mother to daughter, haenyeo life has been shunned in recent decades by nearly all the girls born in Jeju's seaside villages. They tend to favor more comfortable lives in the island's two cities or on the mainland. "Diving in the sea is such a harsh, low-esteem job. Holding your breath, going underwater... it's strenuous. Why would the young ones want to take on this job?" Visit ‘Arirang News’ Official Pages Facebook(NEWS): 🤍 Homepage: 🤍 Facebook: 🤍 Twitter: 🤍 Instagram: 🤍

UNESCO 등재 기원 특집: 제주해녀, 그들의 이야기 1편 For hundreds of years, women from Korea's southern island of Jeju have made their living braving the elements, diving deep into the sea to harvest seafood from the ocean floor.

In Haenyeo - wisdom of the Sea, documentary filmmaker Lygia Barbosa tells the story of the Haenyeo, the women of the sea of Jeju Island in South Korea, through the look of the award-winning Brazilian photographer Luciano Candisani. Courageous, the Haenyeos maintain a centuries-old tradition: they dive using only the air from their lungs in order to harvest marine products. This is how they earn money to raise their children and support their families without causing harm to the environment. The culture of the Haenyeos, recognized by UNESCO as an intangible heritage of humanity, is in decline. More than 80% of the divers are between 65 and 90 years old and currently there are almost no young people entering the activity.

A story of haenyeos or women of the sea who have to hold their breath to survive and of mulsum, or breathing underwater, that represents a desire and temptation that could not be contained. 7 years of exclusive filming reveals a closed community of haenyeos and their lives. Subscribe to the channel: 🤍 Follow us on Facebook: 🤍 In Jeju Province, located off the southern coast of Korea, are the women of the sea who hold breath of life. Typhoons and the barren volcanic soil of the islands left the people enduring years of poor harvest and famine. For survival, women looked to the frigid sea. Haenyeos, women of the sea, still exist and they have been diving without air tanks for more than 1,000 years. They go into the waters of 10-to-20 meter depth to harvest seaweed and shellfish to make a living. They work from 7 to 8 hours a day without even a sip of fresh water. At the end of the day, they return with sumbisori, a while-like noise at the near end of their breath.

This film documents a day in the life of a 12 year old Korean girl, learning to dive as a haenyeo on the island of Jeju. This novice diver is of the last generation that will engage in this vocation, and serves as an important historical document. Haenyeo divers are able to dive 30-50 feet with no breathing apparatus, holding their breaths for 2-3 minutes. From 30,000 divers in the 1970s, there are only an estimated 5,000 of them today, most over the age of 50. This is from a collection of short films in animation, education, documentaries, the arts, and experimental films. Many of these films are classic or vintage and are rare and difficult to find. They give an interesting look back at the days of the Cold War and earlier and how entertainment and education were different from today.
Hello! This is episode 3 of my Korea vlog. I only had 2 days in Jeju Island, but managed to explore the volcanic island and see some top attractions: Oedolgae, Seongsan Ilchulbong, Cheinjiyeon Falls, and a cruise around Seogwipo to see the rocky coastline. We missed camellia season at Cameilla Hill, but Jeju has such beautifully diverse and rich marine and plant life. The highlight of my trip was trying abalone and sea squirt caught by Haenyeo (women divers) at Seongsan Ilchulbong, also known as Sunrise Peak. It was a packed whirlwind trip, but it definitely makes me want to go back and explore Jeju at a slower pace.

[Anchor Lead] Korea’s haenyeo divers are a symbol of Jeju Island, and they were added to UNESCO's intangible cultural heritage list last year. However, there are also hundreds of female divers making their livelihoods from the ocean in Geoje-do Island, Gyeongsangnam-do Province. Next up, we will bring you the stories of younger-generation women who have decided to carry on the traditions of the haenyeo divers. [Pkg] In a vast southern ocean, young women dive into the indigo blue water, carrying buoys, a symbol of Korean female divers known as haenyeos. They are haenyeo apprentices who have voluntarily come to become professional woman divers. Their breathing is still short and shallow, and their diving skills are not good enough. However, the young divers have decided to make their livelihoods from the ocean waters. [Soundbite] Lee So-young(Haenyeo Academy Student) : "Oceans are a resource and all haenyeo divers are a culture. I came to learn how to become a woman diver in order to help preserve and inherit the culture of the haenyeo." Of roughly 790 woman divers in Gyeongsangnam-do Province, less than ten are in their 20s and most are aged 60 or older. Older divers who have been working for 50 years in the vast blue ocean waters off the coast of Geoje-do Island are teaching younger divers the lifestyle and culture of the haenyeo. The older divers express infinite appreciation to the younger apprentices who are following in their footsteps. [Soundbite] Choi Young-hee(Haenyeo Diver) : "Many young students unexpectedly came and enrolled. I appreciate their decisions to carry on haenyeo traditions." Haenyeo is the nation's unique fishing culture, which was named a state intangible cultural asset this year. Young divers are heading to the ocean today as usual, in order to inherit the traditions of the haenyeo culture.

Hello This is Fantastic Todd. I wanna introduce woman divers today. Woman divers are to enter the sea without oxygen supplies and to hunt for algae and shellfish. The haenyeo (해녀) is Korean name of woman diver. The haenyeo are only distributed in Korea and Japan. The Korean haenyeo are scattered on various coasts and islands of the Korean Peninsula. Most of them are concentrated in Jeju Island. The number of haenyeo in South Korea is estimated at about 20,000, and almost all are Jeju haenyeo. Normally there is no special lineage for woman divers. From an early age, they start to learn the skill and do the fishing work.
Women can become Haenyeo.
For Jaeyoun Kim, the ocean is more than a connection to family; it’s a path to healing. Patagonia Films’ Daughter of the Sea follows Jaeyoun, who leaves her island home in South Korea to pursue a more traditional career path in Seoul. But as her mental health begins to unravel and depression sets in, she decides to join the haenyeo, Jeju Island’s famed “women of the sea.” For centuries, these free divers and fisherwomen—some in their 80s—have dived more than 30 feet to gather seafood for their families and villages. Following in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother, Jaeyoun learns what it means to become a haenyeo and why returning to the ocean ultimately saves her.

Inscribed in 2016 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity In Jeju Island, ⛱ there is a community of women, some aged in their 80s, which goes diving 10m under the sea to gather shellfish, such as abalone or sea urchins for a living without the help of oxygen masks. With knowledge of the sea and marine life, the Jeju haenyeo (female divers) harvest for up to seven hours a day, 90 days of the year holding their breath for just one minute for every dive and making a unique verbal sound when resurfacing.🌬 Divers are categorised into three groups according to level of experience: hagun, junggun and sanggun with the sanggun offering guidance to the others. #Korea #traditional #Jeju #haenyeo #한국문화재재단

The film is about a unique ocean culture that exists in South Korea involving women we call Haenyeo. They are women free divers who catch seafood for their living. It is predicted that this culture has been going on for over 600 years. The ocean is their home so they take it very importantly to keep the balance in the ocean and appreciate what it gives them. Thus, the film communicates the value of preserving this culture and their important connection to the ocean. Short Film by Sehee Park Grade 10
I am happy to know that the Korean culture of Jeju Haenyeo(women divers of Jeju Island) is now listed on the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Muljil, the way Jeju Haenyeo dive and swim under the sea, Sumbisori, the unique verbal sound they make when resurfacing, and many traditional work songs by the Haenyeo divers are now globally recognized. The history of Korean Haenyeo dates back to the era of the Three Kingdoms. The Haenyeo divers' life was really tough not only because their work itself was physically challenging but also because they received many cold shoulders. However, touching stories about their life began to move the hearts of many people today. Haenyeo divers overcome all the difficulties to take care of their family and raise their children, making their own unique community culture. They also deserve compliments for their nature-friendly attitude. They usually leave very little environmental impact. Jeju Haenyeo divers' traditional work song "Ieodo Sana" has very sad lyrics. It suggests that their life was very hard to the extent that is beyond our imagination. When it comes to the interpretation of the lyrics, there is some controversy. Nevertheless, I added the English subtitles to help you understand the song and culture. I hope you enjoy it! :)
Sumbisori refers to high-pitched whistle sound emitted by haeneyo as they surface and is maybe one of their most iconic features. In particular, the Festival this year celebrates haenyeo’s designation as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. UNESCO inscription was granted on Nov. 30, 2016 at the 11th session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. #jeju #nature #KOREA #drone #4k #landscape #goddness #island #haeneyo #unesco

Diving is a way for them to earn a livelihood, one that is like a lovely opera. We compare the work of Haenyeos to an aria and interpret their lives with performances by the Jeju City Orchestra. We also present the diving of Haenyeos, an experience that melds joy, danger and sorrow. 해녀 제주에서 여자로 태어나 바다와 함께 해야 했던 운명, 해녀. 물질은 삶을 이어갈 수 있는 생존 수단이었으며, 그것은 마치 아름다운 한편의 오페라와 같다. 해녀의 삶을 아리아로 바라보고 제주시립관현악단의 연주를 시작으로 해녀의 삶을 아름답게 재해석한다. 또한 디테일한 수중촬영씬을 통해 해녀의 자맥질을 표현한다. 숨을 참고 물 속에 들어가는 매 순간, 생과 사의 경계에서 허우적거리는 해녀들의 희로애락을 이야기한다.

제주해녀문화 30일에 인류무형문화유산으로 등재 For centuries,... women called 'Haenyeo' on Korea's southernmost island of Jeju have made a living harvesting seafood by hand work that's both difficult and dangerous. And that's part of the reason the number of 'Haenyeo' is on the decline. But with the tradition being added to UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list this week, preserving this unique culture could get a little easier. Lee Ji-won has more. At the 11th session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage held in Ethiopia,... Korea's southernmost island, Jeju's culture of haenyeo, or women divers, has been listed on UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list. The haenyeo are known for their outstanding diving skills. They collect by hand marine products such as conch, octopus and sea urchins, diving as deep as 10 to 20 meters,... without any special equipment,... and only wearing flippers and goggles. Cultural Heritage Administration quoted some reasons why the haenyeo are added to the list,... saying that the culture promotes social cohesion, fosters nature and sustainable development and promote women's rights. "We couldn't be happier to have our culture be inscribed and preserved as a world cultural heritage. I am very proud,... I don't regret becoming a haenyeo." "People's perceptions on haenyeo have changed. People don't look down on us any more,... and that makes me very happy." But along with the milestone inscription, they also hope this will become a turning point. "We hope this becomes a chance for more people around the world to come see us before we retire." "The number of haenyeo is decreasing,... so I hope more people become interested in the haenyeo culture and even decide to become one,... so they can protect the sea once we are gone." Experts say preserving the haenyeo culture is a task not only of the local community or the government, but also of the general public. "Being a haenyeo is an occupation before it is a culture, and it needs to create profit and be maintained as a profession in order for it to last as a culture. It's now time for everyone to think of ways to preserve this unique job,... including environmentally protecting the sea and establishing a system to promote the haenyeo's regional products."
