PUPU HĪMENE TAMARI’I VAIRAO

SINGING – TARĀVA TAHITI

THEME : THE SOURCE OF FISH


This year Tamarii Vairao sings the story of “TE PUNA IÀ”, the origin of fish told by Mamie Dorette TAAROATUA from the district of Vairao. Her grandfather Papa Rai AFERETI passed on this story to her.
It is on the rock of the mountain MATARAI, located in Vairuia on Vairao that exists this underground spring, which flows in the depths of the ocean. Small and large fish drink this water.
It is the origin of the fish.
We leave you with these lines to appreciate the melodies that talk about TE PUNA I’A, the origin of fish.
