Long live the new King
On May 22, 2013 there was an island-wide celebration on Aitutaki for the investiture of Makirau Haurua with the Teurukura Ariki title. Teurukura Ariki is one of four paramount chiefs on the island of Aitutaki from the village of Reureu. After his own investiture, Teurukura Ariki’s first task as chief was to invest five tribe members with Mataiapo titles. The whole island turned out for the investiture.
