"Tahiti Nui e, Tahiti Rahi e, Here mai ia'u i tei'e nei!"
Ancient songs give the island many names:
"Mounting Place of the Sun"
"Land of the Double Rainbow".
Legends describe the island of Tahiti
as a great fish that swam away for the waters of Sacred Havai'i, now known as
the lagoon between Raiatea and Taha'a.
Aimeo i te rara varu
This, the island's poetic name, comes from
the eight majestic mountain ridges.
Polynesian legend describes the panorama
of volcanic ridges as the second dorsal fin of the fish that became the island of Tahiti.
The ancient name, believed to mean
"first born," came from Polynesian legends describing this as the first island to rise
when Taaroa, the supreme god, fished it out of the waters after the mythical creation
of Havai'i, now known as Raiatea.
The name Huahine may come from the profile of a mountain which reveals the shape of a pregnant woman.
Mythology provides two legends for the creation of the two islands of Huahine: either the god Hiro cut the island in half with his canoe or a spear thrown in a contest among gods pierced Moorea's Mt. Mouaputa and then sailed 100 miles where it split Huahine in two!
Raiatea - The Sacred Island.
Raiatea, meaning "faraway heaven" and "sky with soft light", was first named Havai'i after the homeland of the ancient Polynesians and is the most sacred island in the South Pacific.
Where legends began and dreams are fulfilled.
