Lying 3500km's off the coast of Chile, who annexed the Island in 1888, Rapa Nui is famous for its ?Moai', ancient stone statues its ancestors carved and moved throughout this remote south pacific island. Today, Rapa Nui has become a bucket list destination that each year draws more foreign tourists. However, Simon learns that the Island's sensitive eco-system is home to the world's largest open-air museum with over 26,000 cultural sites scattered throughout Rapa Nui. The roughly 3500 indigenous Rapa Nui living on the island now worry about the impact increasing tourism, immigration, and commercial development is having on their culture and the legacy of their ancestors. Simon arrives in Rapa Nui just as the islands largest cultural festival is about to begin. Through the fascinating cultural competitions Simon observes, he comes to understand why the native Rapa Nui are adamant about limiting tourism and insisting that visitors respect their island home.
