Huahine: Island of the Lost Canoe

Huahine details the first methodical field survey of Huahine conducted by Dr. Yosihiko H. Sinoto, renowned Bishop Museum anthropologist. Sinoto’s archaeological digs and his study and restoration of the traditional marae (religious structures) bring forth a wealth of information about the island and its people. In the words of a Huahine islander, “Sinoto teaches us about us.”
