Rapa nui's body freedom

This picture was taken on Easter Island during the Tapati festival. During the demonstrations of traditional dances everyone participates including pregnant women! This festival was created some forty years ago to give a new birth to the Rapa Nui culture and identity who were affected by a tragic history of slavery and colonization.
