Covering over two million square miles of the South Pacific Ocean, French Polynesia comprises five great archipelagos with 118 islands (Tahiti, the largest!) and offers invaluable perspective into the biology of some of the world’s most stunning cultural ecosystems. On their journey, students will practice weaving, woodcarving and dance as they witness the inextricable connection between Polynesian culture and nature.
By learning from the flora, fauna and people of Tahiti, students will work together to achieve a common purpose, implementing the Polynesian philosophy aita pea pea, meaning, “not to worry” along the way.
Students will challenge and strengthen the mind and body as they explore islands and learn about the rich and complex history of Tahiti through story, song and dance. Students will observe, then contribute to critical scientific research throughout the adventure.
