Start by sailing on the lagoon on a traditional sailing pirogue like the Polynesians did, then do a Polynesian cultural and linguistic immersion with the association Puna Reo Piha'e'ina, very active in sharing the Maohi culture.
You will be welcomed on the beach with the sound of pu (shells) and pahu (drums) then guided to the grand fare pote'e (house) through a small forest and the marae (sacred place) with its history linked to Rotui mountain.
After a good ma'a tahiti (traditional Tahitian dishes) and a little recreation, learn to braid with banana palms, dance the tamure or 'ori tahiti, play drums on the beat of Polynesian songs, create your flowers' crown, discover all the ways to wear Tahitian pareo, learn Tahitian dance steps, play traditional string games, learn Tahitian, stories, legends, pareo dyeing and throw the javelin ...
Memories and unforgettable encounters!
