Apart from being a Flamenco dancer and teacher, I'm passionate about the rescue of traditional Motu culture. There is an urgent humanitarian need to protect ancient Motu culture, knowledge and skills from further dilution, degradation, and ultimately its irretrievable loss to urbanisation. I'm looking to establish a well organised and operated cultural heritage programme for the Motu people to achieve this. This programme would aim to give the younger generation relevance to and pride in authentic traditional cultural expression, and to provide them cultural information that is currently not widely available or accessed (eg cultural heritage material that is locked away in museums). Thus the programme would help to inspire and empower young Motuans to learn about, embrace and maintain their ancient heritage. To this end I'm looking to team up with like-minded people with the same vision, objectives and passion. The dilution of Motu culture is happening at an alarming rate and something must be done about it as a matter of priority.
