HEIVA TU’ARO MA’OHI OF THE POLYNESIAN TRIANGLE
The Heiva Tu’aro Mā’ohi 2021 will once again take on an international dimension with the participation of Pacific countries. The 2015 edition of the festival welcomed an important participation of athletes from the Pacific. Many discovered our Heiva i Tahiti, and the traditional sports of Fenua. The last encounters in Rapa Nui, New Zealand and Vaihi show a certain growing interest and good performances. Many of these neighboring countries practice sports similar to our Tu’aro Mā’ohi with different rules. This is why the Pacific Ancestral Sports Committee was created in order to standardize the rules of competition and to promote the Tu’aro Mā’ohi internationally with the aim of coordinating our actions with the member countries.
