The Cook Islands fulfill many people’s visions of paradise: warm, sunny weather, white sand beaches, sparkling turquoise water stretching out in all directions, gentle ocean breezes and exotic palm trees. With the friendly people, vast diversity of wildlife, and activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, exploring uninhabited islands, and joining in the dancing on an ‘Island Night,’ the Cook Islands are an extraordinary vacation spot. Cultural Look at the Cook Islands. Cook Islanders are mostly Maori (Polynesian), with 88% of the population falling in that category. As with dances, each island has its own songs, and the talents of the singers can be experienced throughout the year at various festivals and events. Besides singing, the people participate in string bands that play at hotels, restaurants, and concerts. Cook Islands art is also distinctive.

With a strong cafe culture, a burgeoning organic and artisan food scene, and a handful of bar and clubs, Rarotonga lives confidently in the 21st century.

The Cook Islands were named in honor of the great British maritime explorer – Captain James Cook – who sailed through and mapped the South Pacific on several voyages. The irony is that the Cook Islands are among the few which Captain Cook never actually set foot on. He only sailed through the area in the late 18th century without anchoring anywhere to check out the local scene. In fact, Cook actually named the island group the Hervey Islands. Cook Islanders take their heritage very seriously and that’s why mandatory classes at school teach children the exotic traditional songs and dances. It’s nearly impossible to find a Cook Islander who got no rhythm, perhaps the reason why islands are legendary for their spectacular evening shows known locally as island nights.

Cook Islands mythology comprises historical myths, legends, and folklore passed down by the ancient Cook Islanders over many generations. Many of the Cook Islands legends were recited through ancient songs and chants. The Cook Islands myths and legends have similarities to general Polynesian mythology, which developed over the centuries into its own unique character.

They both are professionally invested in the human and economic development of their homeland. Debi previously worked for both the Cook Islands Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health. A huge part of the success of the Cook Island program is due to James and Debi. They are very involved and respected in the Rarotonga community; kind and caring individuals and as a team, balance each other very well. A trip to the Cook Islands is not a vacation or a volunteer trip; to me it feels like I’m going home.
