pWWW °Fr vue de la Baie d’atuona avec, dans les nuages, le mont temetiu/View oF ATuoNA’s BAy, oVerlooked By mT TemeTiu, shrouded in cloud. 24 Seventeen years later, in 1791, the arrival of captain Etienne marchand, also in vaitahu bay, marked the beginning of a french presence. in 1842, in hanamenu bay, at the north western tip of hiva oa, the rear admiral dupetit-thouars, with a ive-strong leet of warships, was able to obtain sovereignty of hiva oa from the marquesan chiefs. marking the moment that french rule was permanently installed, with its accompanying catholicism. the irst missionaries had already been dropped in Vaitahu in 1838, by Dupetit-Thouars. Then in 1848 the marquesas apostolic vicariate was created and the irst bishop nominated, monsignor Baudichon. the irst catholic mission was established in Puamau, on hiva oa’s north coast. as was the trend on other islands in the archipelago, the 20th century saw hiva oa’s population recover, slowly but surely, towards the end of the century this recovery was accompanied by a dramatic cultural rebirth. the marquesan language, culture and traditions were once more valued as the treasures they are. this strong cultural identity is now proudly on display. one of its great symbols is the marquesas festival of arts, an event that is held every four years, the last edition was held in hiva oa, in december 2015. the sites in Puamau, atuona and taaoa resonated to the sounds of traditional song and pahu (marquesan drums), over theeight days of festivities. this rediscovered marquesan pride, allied with the natural wonders of the island make hiva oa a must-see destination. tourism is developing alongside other more traditional economic activities, like ishing, agriculture and crafts. atuona is also the center of various diferent public administrations, providing important employment opportunities. this mélange of activities allows 2 200 inhabitants to live on their homeland, without need to turn further aield, as was the case in the past. things are the way they should be : the islanders stay and the visitors come to immerse themselves in the spirit of the marquesas, an intangible power that is hard to deine, but deinitely present in hiva oa, having captivated the souls of geniuses like the french painter Paul gauguin and the great Belgian singer Jacques Brel. they are both important igureheads for hiva oa, but island’s strange appeal cannot simply be reduced to these famous names. it has a mystical power, all of its own.
