Heiva I Tahiti July 3 – 19 Papeete, Tahiti

Business Traveler (USA) - - THE SCENE -

Heiva comes from the words hei, mean­ing to as­sem­ble, and va, mean­ing com­mu­nity places. At its core, though, Heiva means fes­ti­val. Mu­sic, singing, dancing and sport­ing events have al­ways been in­te­gral to Poly­ne­sian cul­ture. In an­cient times, these per­for­mances were es­sen­tial to re­li­gious and po­lit­i­cal cer­e­monies. More than a fes­ti­val, Heiva I Tahiti is the sym­bol of Poly­ne­sian cul­ture.
