"Iaorana" is the greeting word in Tahiti. Tahiti is part of the Society islands of French Polynesia. The climate in Tahiti is moderately tropical with the average temperature being 80 degrees. The primary resources in Tahiti, besides the number one industry of tourism are coconut products such as coconut oil for skin care and suntan lotion followed by pearl shells, fish and vanilla. Music and dancing plays a significant role in Tahitian life. Come listen to the Toiere (wooden drum) and watch the energetic hip shaking of the Tahitian dancers.
