Pretty soon delegations arriving from Pitcairn, Norfolk, Australia and New Zealand will descend on Huahine and then Tahiti in time for the celebration of the 220th anniversary of the arrival of HMS Bounty on Tahiti's shores. This is a time for descendants to gather in remembrance of our ancestors - the Bounty mutineers and their Polynesian wives.
Our last celebration was three years ago ... a wonderful event where many lost cousins reunited from all over the Pacific.
A much larger contingent will be coming this year - around 90 people. The Bounty Day celebration is held on 27th October - the day that Bligh first set step at Matavai Bay and decided to set up camp to collect breadfruit or 'uru.
During the week around this event the delegations and local Tahitian descendants will be attending various other events - watch this space!
