‘Heiva: Dance’ stamp from French Polynesia
French Polynesia dedicated its new stamp to the traditional Polynesian dance and the holiday of Heiva. In Polynesia, dance is an ancestral tradition. Each festive event and each moment of life is celebrated by a specific dance. Dances are both men’s and women’s business. They are accompanied by traditional instruments, especially the ukulele (small guitar) and the pahu (big drum). Every July, especially in Tahiti and Bora Bora, the Heiva takes place. This is an opportunity to see beautiful shows featuring the greatest dance troupes and the best dancers.
