"They are interested in solar, sandy and pool, not the island," says Edgard Herevi of the city' s Tourist Board. The tourism has also attracted immigrants from the continent.

There are now 5,000 inhabitants, compared to 3,300 in 2002, only half of whom are descended from Raffa Nui. Virtually no one is unemployed, and thanks to the income from tourism and public expenditure, the standard of livelihood is similar to that on the continent. The Chilean authorities are responding by suggesting legislation to strengthen the island's administration, give the people of the island a greater say and allow them to exercise greater influence over migration.

There are also plans to increase the admission price to most of the major attractions in Raffa Nui National Park from $10 to $60 for foreign visitors. Mr Nui's parliament, a group of radicals who have separated from the Council of Elders, is demanding freedom. She wants to drive away Chileans, even those who have spent most of their life on the island, unless they have a long lasting relation to a Rape Nui or are parents of a baby with Rape Nui-breed.

These allegations are just a symptom of financial disappointment, says Sergio Rapu, an archeologist and former island alderman. However, the issue they are raising is whether greater independence to conduct their own business would help the Rafa Nui avoiding a repetition of the environmental breakdown that they could not have prevented hundreds of years ago.
