Mama Piru was a powerful and charismatic Rapanui woman. Her firm and stony mettle was similar to the colossal Moai (statues). But behind this harsh facade, there was a sweet, affectionate and generous woman, a matriarch of her people, called by all “Mama”. The power and ancestral strength of the maori people, the Mana, was intense in her, which led her to work unceasingly for her beloved Island. With this spirit of leader and warrior, she taught and raised consciousness, struggling against the plastic that pollutes her Island, her sea and the planet. As a researcher of cultural heritage, she achieved the first historical repatriation of ancestral bones from New Zealand to Rapa Nui. This book offers her memoirs, written just prior to her departure to her encounter with her ancestors, her Tupuna. Straight-forward and profound tales lead us on a voyage through her history, as fascinating as her maori Rapanui culture.
