The origin of Rapa Nui remains unclear. Initially settled by groups of sailors from Southeast Asia, Easter Island came to life through the development of its population. The first king, Hotu Matu’a, ruled with an iron fist over religious and political functions. Hotu Matu’a’s descendants later became the paramount chiefs, the Ariki Mau, of the various socially stratified tribes that lived together. The cult of the Moais began around the year 1000, with the construction of Moais and several ceremonial centers.

Rapa Nui’s cultural identity finds its popularity in its many myths, legends and beliefs. The cultural elements were indeed based mostly on Rapa Nui spirituality. Religious rituals included dancing, music, body painting, tattoos, dress, and the appropriation of symbols.
