Cook Islands Tourism-
Mana Tiaki week is fast approaching, and everyone is welcome to attend! Cook Islands Tourism will be highlighting the Mana Tiaki value with a week of interactive cultural activities and demonstrations, and local entertainment. This will be held from the 1st to the 5th of April, 10am to 2pm each day. The venue for these activities will be at the Maire Nui Park across the road from the Visitor Information Centre in Avarua.
Like the Kia Orana week and Tourism week in the past, Cook Islands Tourism will host these free activities for all to enjoy. The programme will include; medicine making, raw fish making, coconut husking demonstration, pearl shell carving, jewelry making, Ei (garland) making and more. Alongside these activities will be performances from local singers and dance groups, to showcase more of our culture and traditions. Local food vendors will also be there and selling fresh food using only biodegradable and ecofriendly products for all to enjoy. Mana Tiaki Week is set to be a fun-filled week, but with a very important theme and underlying message, so you do not want to miss out. Both visitors and locals are encouraged to come along and participate in the different events and activities. Tell your friends, family and especially if you have visitors, let them know too.
