      French Polynesia is a general name given to islands that form an overseas collectivity of the French Republic. They are divided into 5 categories namely, Windward and Leeward Islands, Tuamotu Archipelago, Gambier Islands, Marquesas Islands and Austral Islands/5(K). Tahitians today have inherited a rich, expressive Tahitian culture from their Mā’ohi ancestors. From the Mā’ohi came the pulse of Tahitian lifestyle, a world where the lives of gods, warriors and men crossed in colorful legends. Tahitian culture is a place where the French Polynesian traditions of music, dance and art rose from the wonder of everyday island life.
