Here is a translation of Amelie’s comment:
To the people who live on Rarotonga, we have watched your dancing (maeva nui event) of Tauranga Vananga and we enjoyed it and saw how beautiful the dancing was.
The biggest thing was to to see your children being well versed in your korero history and oh it was so beautiful how you did it.
How did we know about this? We know about this in July and we went there with a group from Tahiti for the wedding of Ruta Paniani and Kiki Tomokino. I am finished with my thoughts and thank you for your work and dnacing that has been well done.
(thanks to Makiuti Tongiaa for the Tahitian-English translation)
