1st Annual Monoi Week

"Monoï Here Week", or Monoï, My Love, Week, will be held for the first time from Aug. 13-18 at the Papeete Cultural Center and other locations to pay tribute to the scented oil that Tahitians have been using since ancient times.

Workshops, exhibition stands, conferences, movie projections and several open houses will be held to help the public discover Monoï, which has played an important role in the Tahitian way of life, whether during ancestral rites, in traditional medicine, local pharmacopoeia or in personal health care. Today, Monoï is still regarded as one of the main pillars of the rich Tahitian culture.
