Huahine Plantation House is on motu murimahora. After some research we found that the original name for the islet was Motu Taiahu.
Huahine is known in French Polynesia as one of the islands with the most marae (traditional meeting places). The 'ahu' of a marae is similar to an altar or sacrificial platform. Our research continues to locate the marae on this motu.
The land runs the breadth of the motu from lagoonside almost half a kilometre to the ocean shore.
