The Kia Orana Podcast
By Haydn Adams & Chantal Napa
The KIA ORANA Podcast is all about what you will, and will not find in the COOK ISLANDS. Located in the SOUTH PACIFIC are 15 tiny islands, scattered like natures crown jewels. Total land area is 240 square kilometers (93 sq mi). Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) covers 1,960,027 square kilometers (756,771 sq mi) of ocean. The population estimate as at November 2020 is 17,570. The capital island RAROTONGA is the gateway to our outer sister islands. No sky scrapers, traffic lights, escalators, elevators, helicopters, highways, train stations and definitely no cold snow or ice! With your show hosts local Rarotongan Chantal Napa and American Haydn Adams, https://kiaoranapodcast.com/about/ we offer to you our listener the humorous POLYNESIAN style of community conversations through truth, song and creative story telling. Expressing our lifestyles and growing up in village like homesteads. The history, culture of our small island nation, warm tropical environment, relaxed characteristics of our LOCALS is lovingly depicted throughout the interviews. Let us authentically help engage your five senses, to connect you with our ISLAND home and our friendly humble people. Connecting you to the emotional essence of our people, sharing inspiration with the HOPE that you will come and visit us one day. Kia Orana is both a blessing and a wish for good fortune. It is the official greeting of the Cook Islands.
