My Google alert feed on all things Rapa Nui (my latest musical ‘Compass Rose’ is set there) suggested this great Kickstarter Project: ‘Vai – The Story of Water On Rapa Nui‘.
Paleoecologist Dr. Candice Gossen plans to create a documentary film covering 15,000 years of Rapa Nui history and, in her own words:
“Tell you a story, a new story about what I found deep down in the mud below the waters of the crater lake Rano Kao“.
With so much speculation and misinformation regarding Rapa Nui and its tragic history, this seems to be a most worthwhile project to get behind.
Personally, I’ve plumped for the tree gift ($25 or more) as Rapa Nui needs all the trees it can get!
Take a look yourself and consider making a pledge.
