Cultural Island Shows - Legends of the Past
Cook Islanders are proudly Polynesian and with this comes an innate sense of culture. Boasting the "fastest hips in the Pacific", going to a Cultural Show or Island Night should top your list of things to do while visiting our islands.
Many island nights and cultural shows not only allow you to watch the dancing and singing, they will also include traditional food.
On your trip to Rarotonga you will find that Cook Islanders are extremely proud of their roots and heritage with many, young and old, still learning and performing traditional dance, song, arts and crafts. The annual Te Maeva Nui Festival is one of the most important festivals in the Cook Islands and is the cultural highlight for many people who visit Rarotonga. This festival also known as constitution celebrates self rule and independence from New Zealand. This week long festival includes dancing, singing and drumming competitions and many other cultural events around the island.
So, whether you choose to attend an island night or be spectator to a cultural show or even be surrounded by culture for the week long festivities of Te Maeva Nui - your holiday will not be complete without experiencing the wonderful traditional culture of the Cook Islands.
