The stories etched on their Polynesian skin document this micro-nation’s history. Unlike other Polynesian societies, Marquesans created a vocabulary and art by which to tell their people’s story. In 1920, with 97% of their population decimated, only 2000 survived. With tattoo declared illegal by government and church, the last of the “black-skinned” elders find unique ways to guard their people’s precious history. See how a remote Southern Pacific island people rediscover and celebrate their nearly lost identity by uncovering the treasures left behind through Patutiki, the art of Marquesan tattoo
