These questions and the fact that we never stop learning or even discovering the past is what has us all at one time of another watching the History channel on TV. This allowed Robert to visit numerous islands in the South Pacific both going, and on his return voyage. The giant sea beast then wrapped its enormous tentacles around the front of the tree and pulled it easterly toward the rising sun.

The tree seemed as though it was flying over the surface of the ocean at great speed, leaving no wake, only surface ripples the air movement created, just below the great koa tree on top of the water. Terrified as he was, it was the ride of a lifetime for him. Where are you taking me? To this the creature replied, "Your destiny begins to the east. Allow Tangaroa , great god of the sea , to guide your journey.

The great beast then released the tree and slid slowly back to the depths from which it had emerged. The sea suddenly became calm and quiet. He was so hungry; his wooden headrest looked almost edible.

He immediately was confronted by his good friend and companion from childhood, Manu. My Aunty Kaimana has just finished some cassava cakes and has plenty of fresh bananas, figs, and fresh water too, more than enough to eat. Then I can inspect your find in the privacy of her hale while you are eating. Manu added.

Is that understood Manu? Manu agreed, as they entered the home of Kaimana. Once inside, he respectfully greeted Kaimana and thanked her kindness and for the food. Unlike most of the villagers, Kaimana found little if any interest in the piece of drift wood and resumed her daily tasks just outside the hut. Sitting near the opening to the hut, Manu held the wooden object so as to allow maximum sunlight would illuminate its surface.

He could almost hear what Manu was thinking as he observed his body language and facial expressions during the examination. So, what do you think Manu? Any idea what it is?

No, he replied, but also indicated this was probably from a place no one had ever known of or seen. A place far from the world the people of Taea had ever even conceived of. I trust you and like you as if you were my brother, so what I say to you I want kept between us. I want to share with you the dream I had last night as I slept with this piece of wood.

But what does it mean? What is his plan for you? I wish I knew the meaning of it all. During the hurried journey back to the village of Atapu, Paki explained as much as he knew regarding the reasons why Fautave had needed him back so quickly. How can I help?

Excerpt: Voyages of Malolo

All others will remain outside, the matai ordered. When they entered the sparsely furnished but somewhat elegant hale, Fautave assumed a sitting position at one end, where a series of ceremonial intricately woven mats were arranged. Many in the village are thinking it may be a bad omen from the gods, but not knowing, I told them not be concerned until we knew more about the object. I want you to study it and tell me what you think it is and what it means. Before actually examining the wood, only going on what he had learned from Paki on his way back to Atapu, the kupua had been ready to dismiss it as a prank from some of the younger children.

He would need to take it with him to conduct the ritual, and return only after he had an answer.

He was a long-time trusted friend of the matai and the son of the former Village Kupua who had died ten seasons before at which time the role of kupua was turned over to him. His responsibilities included that of a special kind of healer, magician, and psychic, spiritual advisor and priest, a visitor into the mythical and spiritual world of their gods and goddesses, but always and especially a healer.

He, and only he, knew his short comings, but never shared this with anyone else on the island.

It was his job to know these things. He then turned and made his way back to the village, all the way trying to imagine what the kupua would say when he returned. The location was relatively high on the northeast side of the mountain. His father had used this place for many years; in fact, he would accompany him here many times when he was growing up. His father said he was led to this spot by Laka forest goddess. In the center of the holy place, the ground was covered with mosaic of flat rocks with one large table size rock in the middle on which the kupua would sit or stand during his meditational prayers and rituals.

From this point he could see the rising sun off to his right. The location also allowed him to hear the surf crashing far below, to feel the wind, to see the sea birds and, during periods of deep meditation and in periods of deep introspect, to hear himself breathe and the beat of his own heart. He loved the opportunity to be alone in this place to meditate either with a specific purpose or just for him.

This sacred place was kapu to all others unless they were invited as part of the ritual or prayer or ceremony. All night long, the kupua fasted and meditated waiting for his opportunity to begin his dialogue with the spirits during the dawn of the next day. He had wrapped himself in a white robe of pounded tree bark and took a seat on the large rock in the middle of the sanctuary. From a woven raffia pouch he selected a stone carved fish representing Tangaroa, a wooden object resembling tree roots which symbolized Laka, goddess of the forest, and last, a coconut oil lamp contained in a conch shell representing Maui demi-god of sun and light.

As the brilliant rays of the morning sun began to break over the distant horizon, the kupua anointed each of the objects with sacred monoi scented oil. With the mysterious wooden object in his outstretched arms, the kupua began his prayer for guidance,. Over and over he repeated the same prayer chant to be sure he was heard by the spirits. Entering a dreamlike trance, the kupua began to understand at least a part of the mystery surrounding the red piece of driftwood.

In his trance, the silhouette of a huge canoe was approaching him through the breakwater directly in front of the rising sun. Standing erectly in the bow of the massive vessel was Tangaroa, his tongue extended, his nostrils flared and, his piercing green eyes focused directly on the shaman. Great fear and trepidation overcame the kupua at that moment as he fell to the earth prostrating himself with his arms outstretched, almost in a complete state of terror not knowing what to expect next.

The deity then spoke,. Quickly the image disappeared as the kupua awoke in a state of near exhaustion after what seemed like hours in his trance. He had to share it with the matai so plans could immediately begin. He gathered his things and began to make his way back to the village. People had to eat, gardens had to be tended, fishing was required, children had to be cared for, and daily life had to continue as normal in spite of the excitement associated with recent events. Nevertheless, the wooden tablet was openly speculated about becoming the topic of conversation among many villagers, from the time the shaman departed the previous day.

It was children who first noticed him approaching the village. When his arrival became evident, Fautave gave word the kupua was to come directly to his hale. This whole thing made him feel important because these types of meetings with the matai were usually reserved for his elders or visitors of great importance and, now he was being asked to attend a meeting with the matai and the kupua.

He was excited in one respect and a bit apprehensive in another. Shortly after taking his place on the ornately woven matting, the kupua walked in. They both could see the kupua was exhausted from his experience and journey, but eager to get some answers, Fautave immediately opened the session with a question, Tunui, did the gods speak to you in your prayers? This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?

Glossary Foreword During the time of recorded history circa AD, when such world events as the classic Pueblo period when Anasazi cliff dwelling culture flourished, Muslims destroyed the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, construction on the cathedral in Pisa, Italy began and, final separation between Eastern Orthodox and Western Roman churches occurred, the Pacific Ocean was largely populated by migrating seafarers who originated from the continent of Asia thousands of years before.

These are the voyages of Malolo. CHAPTER 1 Late one day, circa AD, Tikaroa was finding it difficult to see sufficiently to carve the final hieroglyphs into a flat length of reddish colored mahoe wood with his shark tooth tool. What has you so excited? Open my mind to the meaning of this wooden object that has sent to our shores. Help me understand its meaning and what you expect of us. Help us to understand the huna of the wood. The deity then spoke, "Fear not holy man, no harm will come to you this day.
