French polynesia, a little piece of heaven copy

  1. 1. A place I want to go to…
  2. 2.  French Polynesia is an overseas country of the French Republic. It is made up of several groups of Polynesian islands, the most famous island being Tahiti in the Society Islands group, which is also the most populous island and the seat of the capital of the territory.
  3. 3. French Polynesia is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen and I would love to go there, but unfortunately it is a place only for the rich…
  4. 4.  The island groups that make up French Polynesia were not officially united until the establishment of the French protectorate in 1889. The first of these islands to be settled by indigenous Polynesians were the Marquesas Islands in AD 300 and the Society Islands in AD 800. The Polynesians were organized in loose chieftainships.
  5. 5.  People’s houses are small but this is not a problem because I am not sure if they stay there for the day
  6. 6.  European communication began in 1521 when the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, sailing in the service of the Spanish Crown, sighted Puka-Puka in the TuāmotuGambier Archipelago. Dutchman Jakob Roggeveen came across Bora Bora in the Society Islands in 1722, and the British explorer Samuel Wallis visited Tahiti in 1767. The French explorer Louis Antoine de Bougainville visited Tahiti in 1768, while the British explorer James Cook visited in 1769
  7. 7.  So, this is French Polynesia and the most important things of its history… I am going to end this presentation with some more photos
