Sea Legends: Teuira, The Man Who Talks to Sharks
Life on Bora Bora has always had a precarious connection with the shark. Both feared and revered, the shark is always respected. We follow along with Teuira as he explains the ancient lore of the shark and why it is his personal mission to appease his god by living in harmony with these great fish.
Several generations’ of beliefs and practices guides Teuira in his lifelong quest. After rescuing a small shark from his family’s exclusive fishing grounds, he invites us to a meal in honor of Taaroa. It is Teuira’s hope that Taaroa sees this kindness and respect for his beloved shark and returns balance and peace to the waters.
