Welcome to Raiatea, where there’s more to gender than generally meets the eye

Sometimes known as a ‘faraway heaven,’ Raiatea is thought to be the birthplace of Polynesia him/herself. Reason being, amid the various islands of French Polynesia, there is a sociological and anthropological condition called RaeRae or Mahu - where people are considered to be neither men nor women, but half-men/half-women. Hence, said birthplace is of great historical and cultural significance. Meanwhile, the Marae Taputapuatea is another mystical site, considered to be the most religious temple of Eastern Polynesia.
