Every week we offer a variety of cultural demonstrations that highlight traditional Polynesian practices and techniques. Our demonstrations include how to tie a pareu, open a coconut and basket weaving.
Pareu knotting is a traditional way to wrap-around fabric as a skirt or dress for Polynesian women. Our trained demonstrators will show you how to tie the perfect knot and create intricate patterns using various colors and designs. Not only is this a fascinating cultural practice to observe, but it also offers you the opportunity to learn a new skill.
Our coconut opening demonstration is a true show of strength and skill. Using a traditional tool, our demonstrators will show you how to open a coconut in just a few seconds. This is a must-see demonstration for anyone who has ever struggled to open a coconut.
Finally, our basket weaving demonstration will introduce you to the traditional art of basket making using natural materials such as coconut fronds. Our demonstrators will show you how to weave intricate patterns and shapes, resulting in a beautiful and functional piece of art.
Not only are these demonstrations entertaining and educational, but they also offer an opportunity to connect with Polynesian culture and traditions. In addition, attending these demonstrations can enhance your travel experience and leave you with lasting memories.
