Va’a Foundation

The Tahitian delegates at the annual IVF Congress (May, July, 2019)- Alfred MATA, Vetea SANFORD- presented the exciting project : VA’A FOUNDATION.

The target focuses upon the worldwide multiple cultural values conveyed over the centuries throughout the vast Pacific Ocean civilizations.

The sports people along with the nations’ leaders will hopefully follow up the surf and attain the shore of the UNESCO for a long expected recognition after the TAPUTAPUATEA MARAE, in the Leward Islands.

Les délégations tahitiens au Congrès annuel de la Fédération Internationale de Va’a (Mai, Juillet 2019)Alfred MATA, Vetea SANFORD- ont présenté la FONDATION du VA’A.

La cible concentre les multiples valeurs culturelles séculaires dispensées au travers des civilisations de l’immense Océan Pacifique.

Les sportifs du va’a avec les dirigeants des nations prendront la vague, espérons-le, pour atteindre les rivages de l’UNESCO, pour une reconnaissance longtemps souhaitée après celle du MARAE de TAPUTAPUATEA aux Iles-sous-le-Ventent.
