Roiti Tahauri Sylva
Roiti Tahauri Sylva, born in Tuamotu island of Takaroa, danced for the legendary Madeleine Mou’a, among other notable Tahitian dance instructors in Tahiti. She came to Hawaii in 1959 before statehood and was a featured Tahitian dancer in Waikiki. Roiti was instrumental in starting a Tahitian Ori Competition here in Florida. She was also instrumental in teaching Tahitian Ori, Protocol, Basics of Dance and Culture to many here in Florida and throughout America and Mexico.
