Birds of the Wind, People of the Wind

Solange Petit-Skinner Ph D

Shrouded in mystery, frigatebirds are highly honored in Nauru and many other Pacific Islands. They belong to the supernatural realm. They represent a link between the visible and the invisible worlds and a channel for communication with the spirits. In several languages of Oceania, the translation of frigate is bird of the wind . Frigates are inextricably linked to the wind, a force seen as a pre-Christian God the cult of whom is not entirely abolished. The Polynesians have an extraordinary admiration for frigatebirds, for like people of the sea they love challenges, risks and freedom.
