va'a australs


Polynesian Culture and Society is based at the Atitia Community Center adjacent to the Gump Station and on Tetiaroa - a private atoll a short distance from Moorea. This course immerses students in how the first peoples of these islands understand and interact with their island homes, from a traditional to modern perspective, and with insights on human-environment interactions stemming from Gump Station’s long-standing archeological research program.
