Competed in Hilo 01' with Te Poe O Patitfa. Loved every minute I was there. From the competition to the wonderful hospitality!! Not an experience you can replicate. Truly one of the best times of my life. Never will I forget my trip to this wonderful place!! Thank you aunty Pua!!!

"The Tahiti Fete in San Jose is one of the best yearly cultural events in California."

The dedication of the organizers, groups, bands, and individual performers hails to impress the audience year after year. Besides being dazzled and mesmerized by drumming and the beauty of the dance, it makes for great photography. Sensory overload in the greatest of ways.
