"The Right to Live in Peace"

The history, passion, and soul of your culture lives in each word you speak in your native tongue.

The people of Rapa Nui standing in solidarity with the Chilean people and sing "The Right to Live in Peace" by Víctor Jara, in their language (self-titled Reʻo Rapa Nui or Vānanga Rapa Nui).

It is believed that a group of Pacific Island Voyagers sailed from Rapa Nui to South America and brought back with them the Kumara / Kumala / 'Umala otherwise known as the sweet potato.

Here is proof of the importance of keeping our languages and our cultures alive. If you have a love for our Pacific Languages like I do, you'll easily understand some of the lyrics in the song being performed here.
