„When it comes to local island history, the stone tiki figures of the Marquesas are clearly related to their larger Polynesian brethren, the gigantic moai figures of Easter Island. Visits to archaeological sites featured regularly on our journey, including the Te I’Ipona archaeological site on Hiva Oa with the islands’ biggest tiki collection. An extraordinarily energetic drumming and dancing group welcomed us to the Kamuihei site on Nuku Hiva, grass skirts flying, tattoos rippling, underlining another Polynesian Pacific connection – the Kiwi All Blacks’ rugby haka being perhaps the best-known example.“
