Rechad er Belau, or Palauans, are the indigenous people of the traditional name by which we call our nation, which is now known as the Republic of Palau. We are a sovereign people who gained independence in 1994. Our island nation is an archipelago made up of about 340 islands, islets, and atolls. Eight of the islands are inhabited. Palau is the western-most island of the Micronesia region of the Pacific Ocean. It is less than 2,000 miles south of Japan, 3,815 miles southeast of India, 400 miles north of Papua New Guinea, 950 miles southeast of the Philippines, and 830 miles southwest of Guam.
