Va’a, the queen discipline in Polynesia, representing the power and strength of Polynesians. The strength lies in the tahoe, the fact of being welded both on the canoe and outside and rowing together at the same rate. It is a long, tedious and difficult learning to row on a canoe. Understanding and learning tahoe is also easy. Rigor, observation and self-involvement is necessary. This is what makes the strength of the Polynesian people.
To unite, to make one, in Tahitian
