Tahiti and Bora BoraThe Tahitian and Bora Bora
" Covering over two million sq. m. of the Pacific Ocean, Tahiti and her archipelago consists of 118 inhabited archipelagoes distributed over five large groups of archipelago. Located as far southeast of the Hawaii Peninsula in the northern hemisphere, Tahiti is half way between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as America and in the same timezone as Hawaii.
There are many island tops with serrated tops, while others hardly seem to hover above the breakers. On an area as large as Western Europe, the entire land mass of all eight isles totals an area that is only slightly bigger than the minute state of Rhode Island. Its three most popular islets are the Society Isles of Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Raiatea and Taha'a; the Tuamotu or" Tahiti's Strand of Pearls", including the Tahitias of Rangiroa, Manihi, Tikehau and Fakarava; and the Marquesas or" The Secret Islands".
" There are two other archipelagoes, the Austral and Gambier Isles, located in the southern and south-eastern parts of the Society Isle. Whilst very few travellers dare to visit these isolated isles, those who are not dissapointed by the untouched nature are. In 4000 BC a great migratory movement began from Asia Pacific over the open sea to colonize the Pacific isles.
There are many explorers who come to the conclusion that Tonga and Samoa were populated around 1300 BC and from here colonisation journeys to the Marquesas Isles were made around 200 BC. In the following century, great hikes took place to colonise all the Tahiti Isles and practically the whole of the South Pacific. Magellan discovered the Pukapuka Atlas in the present Tuamotu Atolls in 1521 and in 1595 the Spaniard Mendaña explored the island of Fatu Hiva in the Marquesas.
Over 170 years later, Captain Samuel Wallis and H.M.S. Dolphin visited the Tahitian Islands on his voyage to explore the terra Austris Icognita, a mythic land mass under the Eqator that was to bring the equilibrium into the North. Valais called the Isle of Tahiti "King George III Island" and demanded it for England.
Shortly after Valais' advent, the sailor Louis-Antoine de Bougainville arrived on the opposite side of Tahiti, claiming it for the King of France. 1880, after the deaths of the king, King Pomare V. was convinced to give up Tahiti and most of his dependences to France. By 1957, all the Tahitian Isles had been restored as OCT with the name Tahiti-Poland.
