Vahine, Heimiti, and Kohai…’Young girls, patrons of the earth’

According to oral traditions, the second migration of Polynesians to the Hawaiian islands came from a place to the south called Kahiki, better known as Tahiti.

This second migration allegedly replaced some of the older Marquesan settlers and formed the new Aliʻi social class.

Communication between the two regions ceased for more than 500 years…until the arrival of Capt James Cook.

This changed Polynesian history and culture.

Still, underneath it all, it’s clear the Ancient deep connection between Tahiti and Hawaii continues with new life…

Filmmaker Morgan Maassen captures it…through 3 sisters.
