Huahine: Island of the Lost Canoe

Rick Carroll

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 or religious structures bring forth a wealth of information about the island and its people.
