Tumunu - Bulletin Board of the Cook Islands

Last update: January 26 2015
This is a free, moderated service for Cook Islanders or others to post notices and to discuss subjects of relevance to the Cook Islands. Publication is at the whim and prejudices of the Brewmaster. Maori must be accompanied by an English translation. On any contentious or personal matter you will need to include your e-mail address. No messages will be published if received in capitals only or in lower case letters only or in abbreviated 'text speak'. Material will be edited if overlong, ungrammatical or boring. Postings will be kept until deemed no longer current (usually 30 days). E-mail

Note: Click here for Bereavement Notices and Condolences.

Brewmaster: Please note that we will not publish messages which are not punctuated or those written in 'stream-of-consciousness' style with phrases separated only by a series of full stops. They take too much time to sub-edit and render into English. Also, note the guidelines above concerning Maori and capital letters.

Can I please just ask is Kanaka the white looking bread dish that is baked in the oven? I remember being with my nana and eating all our Island goodness and am trying to get back into cooking our traditional dishes. If anyone has a recipe or basic rundown on how to make this dish I will be so grateful. Thank you in advance. Christine W.
If you want replies you should add your e-mail address. Brewmaster.

My wife and I spent a week on Aitutaki in 1989 and all the years since we have remembered a daytrip to One Foot Island with great joy. But today I found this website and learned what become of that idyllic spot today. The daytrip was on a little canoe with outrigger and we were the only people on the island except two nice cats. We had lunch on some fish caught by the young man who brought us there and we were in paradise. The change of the island now is a shame. Nobody can call it a paradise now. Ask the visitors and you will learn exactly what I try to say. Bring back the clean unurbanised island which was the best travel destination in the world. Leif Salicath.

One wonders how inept our Government Ministers really are. Reading about Mark Brown wanting to educate the general public on 'anti-corruption' sounds like a skit on a satirical show. Really Mr Brown! Is it necessary to educate the public on 'anti-corruption'? It is absurd. It's the government and public servants who need education on this not the guy in the taro patch. It's like educating starving Zimbabweans on how not to become like their loathsome Prime Minister Robert Mugabe. Ben T.
