All that is left of evangelistic impact is good - nice beloved knowsleds ( "many of them"), the traditonal mu-mu, now upgraded to an insular must-wear (see the TAV brand, Elena Tavioni's idea for the contemporary version), the enduring reputation of Kia Orana and a feeling of friendliness that reveals a comradeship that, while probably always a trip to Aitutaki makes you think you've just gone to Newvana.
