Anuta in the news

By Hanneke Boon

Anuta in TRIBE series on Televison

If you have been interested in the Tikopia Project and are in a location where you can receive BBC2 television, you may be interested in a program on Tuesday 4th September at 9pm UK time.

The 3rd episode of the latest ‘Tribe’ series takes Bruce Parry to the tiny island of Anuta, sister island to Tikopia. This program was filmed on Anuta last year after the BBC contacted us to learn more about Tikopia and Anuta and their unique culture.

Unfortunately, last year we were not ready yet to sail Bruce to the island on a Tama Moana (Child of the Sea) double canoe, so he sailed there on a French charter cat, but he does go fishing on one of the native canoes.

Klaus Hympendahl is now working full time on raising the funds for the Tikopia Project. We will soon be able to give more details of progress and a voyage plan.

The major British newspapers have taken particular interest in the Anuta episode of Tribe and this article was published in the Observer on 26th August.
