“On aborde les Marquises par l’île de Nuku Hiva. Une petite plage de sable noir ferme la baie de Taipivai. Une

Dans la moiteur de l’épaisse végétation, au pied d’un gigantesque banian, apparaît le plus ancien site archéologique de l’archipel. Le village taillé dans le basalte remonterait au XVe siècle. Il donne à voir le paepae (pavage de cour intérieure) d’un fare (maison) de chef, un tohua (grande place réservée aux fêtes) et un marae (espace consacré aux chefs religieux). »
