Nui Easter IslandOsterinsel Nui
During the first transpatriation to Easter Island (Rapa Nui), two ancestor heads were brought back to their home countries. It is only the forth repatriating of the remnants of New Zealand's forebears to another state. An ancestor of www. otago.de was given back to a mission of rappa nui on January 27 and said goodbye to us, the Canterbury Museum, Ng?i T??huriri, and the Otago Museum in a ceremonial in Tuahiwi Marae, North Canterbury.
Cannterbury is the first Teppuna in almost 70 years since the New Zealand government bought 3,184 M?ori and Pacific Daonga from UK-based William Oldman on August 13, 1948. While the Oldman Collection has been divided among New Zealand's institutions, it is managed here on a collective basis as a New Zealand Government fiduciary institution.
In March 1935, Frederick G. Dustin, the propellant technician on Richard E. Byrd's second Antarctic mission (1933-35), took the second Typeuna together with other Rapa Nui taionga to the Otago Museum. Rapa Nui phoned one of the two vessels of the cruise before arriving in New Zealand in December 1933.
Rapa Nui's small mission of www.rapa nui, comprising senior citizens, patriotic scholars and civil servants, set out on the almost 7,000 km long voyage from the east Pacific to Aotearoa to raise their www.aotearoa.de. Ariki Hotu Matu'a's children and our brothers and sisters from M?ori have come together to take our ancestors home," said Piru Huke, Koro Oro?o/Advisory Panel to the Rapa Nui Re-patriation Program.
We are pleased to be able to support the application for return.
Archeology of Rapa Nui (Easter Island)
Rapa Nui's scientific and scientific interest in Easter Island has influenced research on this island since the end of the 19th c.... Over the last twenty years, such research has made a significant contribution to the understanding of archeological records, pre-historic farming, communal structures, habitation models and the carvings and transportation of some 1,000 human sculptures or mai.
While Rapa Nui's popular history is one of the self-inflicted devastations of the populace through environmental degradation - ecozid - this research suggested that decentralised welfare schemes, which include those related to moaicarving, and cutting-edge sub-sistence practice within a peripheral setting have helped the Rapa Nui finally survive.
