Aloha mai kākou,
I am delighted to invite you to join us this Wednesday evening, March 3, 2021 at 7 pm on https://bit.ly/brandtweb for our 33rd Brandt Webinar focusing on RAʻIĀTEA TEMPLES: Taputapuātea, Tainuʻu & Hauviri, presented by Paul Moʻohono Niva, who is an Archaeologist and author from Raʻiātea with an MA from the Sorbonne, and who is often hired by the Tahitian government to survey sacred sites in French Polynesia, where he has vast experience. He has also studied a number of heiau in Hawaiʻi.
This presentation is part of our brand new 2021 series on Hawaiian and Polynesian Temples, including those that measure the sun moving through the Solstices and Equinoxes, such as Taputapuātea and Tainuʻu.
I also hope you enjoyed our presentation last week on SAMOAN TEMPLES: Faleʻula, Origin of the First Sāmoan Temple in Manuʻa & Upolu, presented by Leali’ifano Dr. Albert Refiti, who is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Art and Design at the Auckland University of Technology, in New Zealand. Born in Vaovai, Falealiʻi, Sāmoa, Dr. Refiti was trained as an architect at Auckland University. Subsequently, he worked in London, and afterward, returned to teach at AUT. If you missed it, you can catch it at https://bit.ly/brandtchair.
Please share the attached flyers with all of your family, friends, and networks. Mahalo nui loa for all of your support of the history-making Brandt Webinars on Polynesian Ancestral Knowledge!
