Story in Stone

This film draws us into the world of the Polynesians of Raivavae in the Austral Islands and the Nuku Hiva on the Marquesas Islands. Edmundo Edwards (Pacific Islands Research and Education Institute) is working with island nations seeking out their lost and deliberately hidden civilization.  The people know nothing of their past because following their discovery by Europeans, who brought missionaries and foreign diseases, 80% of the population died within a short period of time.  Survivors were converted to Christianity, destroying the symbols of their religion. Now archaeologists are uncovering who these people had been for thousands of years.

Running time:  60 minutes.
