Tapati: Respecting ancestral traditions

This festival is the most representative of the Rapa Nui culture. During 10 days in February, the inhabitants and travelers that visit the island are divided into competing teams. The team with the highest score after a collection of competitions is the winner, and their candidate is declared Queen of Tapati.

There are competitions such as the Vaka Tuai, in which each team must make a traditional polynesian canoe out of cattails, and navigate with their candidate for queen, dressed in ancestral fashion; the Takona, in which the participants paint their bodies with natural pigments and then describe the meaning of their paintings in front of the community; the Tau’a or triathalon; and the Haka Pei, in which the competitors are launched down a hill on toboggans fashioned from banana tree trunks, reaching speeds of 80km/h.

Wi-Fi and voltage
