The ‘Arioi were praised in ancient times.
They were talented actors, dancers and storytellers. They were the masters of ceremonies and the holders of ancestral knowledges, they also had legendary sailing skills! We want to re-discover this heritage and make it available overseas, so our culture stays alive.
The symbol of the ‘Arioi was the red feather.
