The Elders a surge in their chest
Love intense caring and future hope
Resurrection of a culture - the hope of fire
Sweet smelling waters - deep blue and far
Further then the eye can see
Sunset and horizon
Coconut trees swaying in the wind
And the sand welcoming home
So many daughters and sons
Of the Islands of Polynesia
For the second times in two years
The youth with Utopia
At the helm of affairs
Took the lead to provide
Unity and Strength among all
Guidance in matters big and small
Love and unity among all life styles
Education and information
Pertaining to all Polynesian cultures
True to each one's heritage
Facing difficulties - sprouting from assimilation
Confront blend habits - Americana
Through cultural songs and dance
Embracing the world
Polynesia and islands galore
Deep in the soul of the island people
Is a fire from which sprouts life?
Unique and with a distinction
Too deep - sorrow, love and pain
Soothing to the soul - again and again
Straight as an arrow - sharp as a spear
Red as blood - blue as the waters
Of Polynesia
Smooth skin - coconut oil
Fire pit and pig
Coconut juice and plantain
Kava and papaya juice
Fruits of paradise - guava

Maurie Manamea and her friends.

Princess most charming.

Earth tones in our painting
Pounding bark for our paper
Thousands of years
And stronger we grow
Spread all over the world
Our men and women
In the Armed Forces serve
With dignity and honor
Remembering the Islands
From which came the
Chiefs one of a kind
And people sweet
Sway to the music
Dance to the beat
Of two sticks or drums
Smooth grass for our skirts
Our women are gentle
Our children docile
Our men warriors
From an ancient land
We look forward to a better tomorrow
