WHO


Founders of Avaiki Nui are Faimau Robati and Jason Brown, formerly resident in Avaiki, the Cook Islands.

 

Robati first began discussing vananga concepts with Brown in 1992, identifying the need for traditional survival arts to be taught to younger generations, not just performing arts.

 

Last year, the founders joined forces to begin full-time, unpaid  research into how best to bring concepts alive. A "dream team" advisory council has been identified, with some already invited and expressing support in principle for this i-governance project.
