Articulating Rapa Nui

Riet Delsing

University of Hawai'i Press

The occurrences of the last decade are described. They speak to and support my thesis about the increasing entanglement of the political and the cultural in Rapa Nui. Information about Rapa Nui’s relationship with Chile is brought up to date, especially concerning Chile’s adherence to the ILO’s Convention 169 and immigration policies. The Parlamento Rapanui has radicalized its stands. The discussion about private and collective land tenure between the Chilean state and the Rapanui community continues. As far as language is concerned, immersion education in the municipal school is going strong and has received support from the Ministry of Education. Rapanui cultural expressions are persisting on and off island and so are the contacts with other Polynesians. The amount of tourists to the island has reached record heights.

Keywords:   Rapa Nui, Chile, Parlamento Rapanui, land, language, culture, Polynesia, tourism
