                TE VARA NUI VILLAGE

                                                      The Story

 Te Vara Nui Village is named after a beautiful Rarotongan maiden Te Vara, who in her younger days
 performed throughout the Pacific, proudly show casing the Cook Islands Maori culture to the world.

 The Village is reflective of her past with the “Ura Po” performance and is a chance for her to give back
 something to the people of the Cook Islands by reviving and allowing the world to once again, relive the
 memories and traditions of our Cook Islands culture.

 Greatly respected by everyone on the island, she has dedicated her life to her family and our culture,
 along with trying to accomplish her mission of preserving and portraying the ethnicity, arts, and crafts of
 the Cook Islands and its people.

 With her grace and beauty, she has worked timelessly with her daughter Moana and son in law Fodil to
 create and revive this dream and bring to life, the very essence of our Cook Islands spirit through
 tradition, culture, dance and beauty.

 From Vara, with love…
