La danse de Tahiti: Otea

The traditional island dance of Tahiti is called the otea. It is characterized by grass skirts and fast hip-shaking performed to the rhythm of drums. The otea is not to be confused with the hulu dance of Hawaii. The hulu has a slower rhythm than the otea. The otea was considered to be a male dance during its origins, but now men and women enjoy performing it. Performers of the otea weave everyday life themes into the dance using gestures of the hands and the hips. Normally, men choose themes of warfare or surfing, and women dance about home life or nature. The otea is also a competitive dance and Tahitit holds national competitions for the otea.

He started surfing Tahiti’s waves at a young age and grew up to surf on the biggest waves on Tahiti, the infamous Teahupoo reef. When he turned professional, he moved to Hawaii to start his life of surfing. He was an accomplished surfer and won many awards. On December 2, 2005, he died doing what he loved. He tried to surf an eight-foot wave in Oahu’s Pipeline in Hawaii, but he lost his footing and the wave came crashing down on top of him, knocking him unconscious.
