Description

Kia Ora...and welcome to — the Polynesian Cultural Center's islands of Aotearoa, or the "Land of the Long White Cloud" as the New Zealand Maori call their homeland of the past 1,000 years. Aotearoa forms the southwestern apex of the Polynesian Triangle and is the only part of Polynesia to experience four seasons. Consequently, you'll notice the Maori — whose name means the "true people" — created significantly different housing and lifestyles than their Polynesian cousins in the tropical islands. Oh, and yes, the appropriate response to a Maori greeting, which means "good health," is also Kia Ora.

Great synth, but you're geotagged it in Hawaii, not New Zealand! If you can correct the geotag, we've love to feature this one on Bing Maps. Thanks very much...

Thank you David, I will change the geo tag but these images are from a theme park on Oahu HI.
