88 LégEndE POLynésiEnnE/POLYNESIAN LEGEND The legend of’uru A very long time ago, in the bay of ta’aone, Pirae, on the island of tahiti, a peaceful village traded with the inhabitants of the Fautau’a, hamuta and nahoata valleys, exchanging their fish catches for fe’i, plantains or cooking bananas of a beautiful orange hue, when ripe 1. the night of Moe’s birth was unforgettable. the moon shone in celebration.’ū’upa, green fruit doves, cooed in harmony with the chirping of perete’i, crickets, around the birthing hut. this sweet and powerful music carried as far as ta’aroa, the old mountain hermit. he climbed down, guided by a small cloud gathering above the birthing fare 2, a mist of rain diffracting into a sleek rainbow from the moon’s rays. Moe arrived, greeted by the first rays of sunlight, triumphant cocks, a joyful concert of winged beasts and, in the distance, several rumbles of thunder like the satisfied grumblings of a benevolent giant. controlling their barking the dogs yapped. the father, standing in front of his beautiful little daughter, naming her Moe = dream. ta’aroa declared  : « This child will be a blessing to all. For myself, Ta’aroa, i can deny her nothing. » he left without further explanation. after a happy childhood, Moe left her parents’fare ni’au, moving to that of her sweetheart, aratua. near the Fautau’a, where harehare and’ōuma, young jacks and mullet, entered the river mouth, allowing her to cool off and fish at leisure. then, the rains grew scarce. the riverbeds dried-up, exposing the rocks, gravel and sand. goby fry, ina’a, abandoned the estuaries. the jacks and mullets disappeared. the grass died. the trees and bushes shed their leaves and stopped flowering. there were no more fruits. pa’urā ! drought ! the ground cracked. in the grips of hunger and thirst, some villagers took to the ocean in search of fertile land. others went to Moe pleading with her to go and seek out ta’aroa. leaning on each other, the starving young couple clamberedup the valleys, climbed the hills, and scaled the cliffs, calling out when they had the energy. suddenly, from behind a rock, the old man appeared leaning on his cane, made of tou 3. he recognized Moe and asked her to follow him to the dried river bank. there he stood motionless smiling at Moe, come to ask for his help. the two youngsters saw ta’aroa’s feet start sinking into the soil as sturdy roots, his two legs joining to forma single solid trunk, reachingup to his hips and body, from which his arms transformedinto supple and strong branches, his hands becoming large leaves and his head a slightly elongate round fruit, that split into bunches. at the same time, high in the mountains heavy dark clouds gathered and burst. Water spilled over the sand, gravel and rocks. they drank the fresh water, bathed, gathered the largest fruits and returned towards the bay. Back at the village, they cooked the fruits, following the instructions given by ta’aroa who, during his transformation, told them  : « My head will be the round fruit, uru. you eat it after grilling it thoroughly over a wood fire or cutting itup and cooking in the ahima’a. » that is in an earth oven, dug into the ground, the chunks laid over a layer of red-hot stones, then covered with leaves and earth. » and, so, the great famine on the island of tahiti came to an end. 1 - In Tahitian, the color orange is namedafter neither the fe’i, nor the citrus fruit introduced in 1769 by Captain Cook, but for pua, the flowers of the tou (Cordia subcordata) ; or pua tou. 2 - Fare means house, hut, building. In the past, such structures were built from ni’au = wocen coconut palms and bamboo. 3 - Tou is the Tahitian termindentifiyng a variety of tree of our islands, Cordia subcordata, his scientific name.
