Tahitian Day

November 9, 11:00am - 2:00pm
Mānoa Campus, McCarthy Mall (outside Hamilton Library)

Join the Tahitian Program at McCarthy Mall for a celebration of language, performance, and song. Performers from Samuel Raʻapoto high school in Tahiti will perform Tahitian dances and songs, UHM students will read poems, and there will be workshops with Tahitian ukelele, tōʻere, and pahu (traditional Tahitian musical instruments).

Steve Teʻurahau Chailloux is the Tahitian instructor in the Department of Indo-Pacific Languages and Literatures. He is a Tahitian orator and performs ʻōrero (traditional Tahitian chants). He initiated Tahitian Day during spring semester 2012 to promote the Tahitian program and share Tahiti’s vibrant culture and language with the UHM campus. See the event flyer for a schedule of performances.
