A message from Mayor Charles Townsend, City of Rancho Mirage--
Thank you so much for the opportunity to welcome Mayor Terootea of Uturoa, Raiatea and Taste of Tahiti to Rancho Mirage. I was truly honored to partake in the event.  Meeting Mayor Terooatea, along with Roger and your delegation, and the performance by Te Ana Hotu was a deeply moving and memorable experience. The Tahitian culture was beautifully displayed during our meeting.  I hope that you enjoyed your time in Rancho Mirage.  I look forward to welcoming you back next year.

A message from the Director of Economic Development & Marketing, City of Rancho Mirage--
As the Director Economic Development & Marketing for the City of Rancho Mirage, I thank you for bringing Taste of Tahiti to our City. This unique festival was a fascinating display of the Tahitian culture that left quite an impression on those that experienced it (including myself). I hope that your organization will consider a return to Rancho Mirage next year.  I believe that by partnering together that we could significantly grow the event though combine promotional efforts.
Te Ana Hotu brought laughter and smiles to everyone they were around. The purity and beauty of their dancing is something that has truly touched Californians.
On October 21, 2017, Rancho Mirage got to experience their own Taste of Tahiti, thanks to Te Ana Hotu. The performance was electrifying and left everyone wanting more. 
By day, the festival brought in around 1,200 visitors. At night, the gala brought in 375 people. 
On October 23, 2017, visitors of Disney California Adventure Park were given the  opportunity to see real-life Moana through both the dancers and musicians, who expertly executed their own rendition of the Disney songs in their native language.
The next day, the group performed at Knott's Berry Farm. The dancing never gets old; continuously exciting and dynamic, matching drums and swaying hips are enticing to both the ears and eyes.
The organization of Taste of Tahiti wants to extend our sincerest thank you for coming to America and sharing your culture with us. 
We would also like to thank everyone who helped before, during and after the event. And finally, thank you to whoever came and watched the show!
