"Easter Island Foundation is delighted to join the University of Hawaii Press publishing house because it will publish the journal," said David L. Rose, President of the Easter Island Foundation. "There is a long tradition of support for the publishing and distribution of Polyynesian research in the journal, beginning with the handwritten notes of Rana Nui over 30 years ago.
Since this modest beginning, the Rapid Nui Journal has become a powerful, expertly appraised research voices on Rapid Nui and Polynesia.

On 17 November 2018, there will be an interna-tional conference on historical and modernism.
It is the purpose of this conference to think about these changes and adjustments which today affect various facets of everyday living on an island connected with a past and present of Polynesia but connected in political terms with a nation state of South America. Material and immaterial inheritance, modern migrations, the impact of modernism, changes in the island's ecosystems, the natural and social environments, the Pacific of Rafa Nui, relationships with the Chilean state, modern arts in Rafa Nui and the Pacific.

During a fund-raising event in 2015, Toki collected over $60,000 for the first stage of the construction of her first school of music and the art projects. Tokyo Rpa Nui is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the protection of Mr Nui's human, economic, cultural and ecological heritages.

The EIF can still help Toki Rapid Nui's education missions, with generously distributed funds from the Foundation's and our members' Foundation. Please use the following for more information about Toki Rafa Nui: The Easter Islands (aka Rapanui) were Christianised in 1866, but the Republic of Chile, the coloniser of Rapid Nui, was waiting until 1970 before asking the islanders' artisans to sculpt a holy sculpture for their church of the Holy Cross.
Short Seaver proposes a possible link between the 1970 policy of the continent and the Chilean hierarchy's demand for a Rapanui holy woman, soon known as Mary Madre de Rapa Nui. In the 1980' Seaver Kurze found out that the small, pre-contacted wood sculptures by Rapa Nui also adorned the church's present-day holy sculptures.
However, why were motives that depicted the gypsies on Rapa Nui's singular rogorongo board and the island's pre-contacted petoglyphs cut into the holy artefacts of various artefacts in different theological periods? This can be explained by the concept of overlapping cultures, an image presented to the island' s inhabitants by a Rapanui catechete at the end of the nineteenth cent.
The pioneering Riet Delsing colonisation of Rapa Nui and his natives is now available in Spanish! Chile's annexion of the island during the heyday of the imperialist era puts the small latinoamerican nation in a singular place in the story of colonialist globalism. Analyzing this current settlement in the Pacific Islands is a missed reference in the Pacific Island surveys and will facilitate comparison with other Pacific colonies in the United States ('Hawaii', Samoa), France ('Tahiti') and New Zealand ('Maori and Cook Islands').
Once Captain Cook had shown how to navigate the Pacific Ocean securely, overseas merchants began to take advantage of the Pacific for their own profits. Only a foray of individual journeys by courageous skippers who are prepared to defy the unfamiliar to set off for the wide Pacific, where only a few very small trails were marked.
It examines how 25 colorful but little-known merchants extended the Pacific trading business in episodes, and how they sought to make a profit each year. It' s just in hindsight that their Episodian journeys seem to open the Pacific to Britain, America and other overseas developments. This unparalleled compilation brings together dispersed resources from Great Britain, the USA and other countries into one Pacific novella.

Yet another new volume by Rapanui Press, Te Poki Rapanui: the first biogeographical map to cover all of Oceania's major bird populations. It covers all 241 bird populations, among them the endangered bird populations ever registered in the Line Islands, the Cook, Austral, Society, Marquesas, Tuamotu and Gambier Archipelago, the Pitcairn Group and the Eastern Is.
Its spread on the 151 isles of the area is shown in 142 charts in detail. With the exception of those known only from bony recordings, all types occurring in Eastern Polynesia are shown in color. BIRD' s of Eastern Polynesia is an innovative and much needed bird anthology of all available bird related ornithology books, containing many hard-to-find accounts and unreleased information from native bird scientists and botanists.
She also contains new information gathered by the writers on many excursions to Eastern Polynesia and when visiting museums. The work provides a full view of this huge marine area for anyone interested in the biological, biogeographic and bird protection of the Pacific isles.
