In ancient Polynesia, the voyagers of the Pacific ventured across the Pacific Ocean in double hull canoes seeking new land, Havaiki Nui, the great land of promise. These people of the sea migrated and settled throughout the Pacific establishing what we know today as Polynesia – Tahiti, Samoa, Hawaii and the many islands of the Pacific. Join this exciting journey to Polynesia through chant, song, and dance – from the ancient Kahiko hula, the pulsating dances of Tahiti, the enchanting Hawaiian hula to the exhilarating fire knife dance.
