Kia Orana! Introducing Stan Wolfgramm from Te Ara - Cook Islands Museum of Cultural Enterprise πŸ‡¨πŸ‡°.Stan is of Cook Islands, Tongan and German ancestry.

Having grown up in Aotearoa with a successful career in the entertainment industry, Stan made the move home to Rarotonga and helped found Te Ara Museum - a business incubator for the community. He hopes his work gives back to the community, as well as educating both locals and tourists on the origins of the Polynesian people and migration.

We have upgraded the museum with new archival photographs. At Te Ara you can get an overall view of the Cook Islands history from understanding the migration through to society today. Currently open 6 days 9am - 3pm. Closed On Saturday. We also have a gallery store. Come visit us. @experience_rarotonga @cookislandsescapemagazine

This is a story of indigenous land rights gone awry, a makutu from an aggrieved family and the failed business ventures of an infamous 'haunted hotel' in Rarotonga.

In pre-colonial times, it was the scene of bloody battles between rival tribes, and ancient spirits are said to patrol the area. It is also the subject of a bitter ownership dispute that dates back more than a century and gave rise to the curse that is still said to hang over the area.

This is the β€˜cursed’ Sheraton hotel complex in Rarotonga,a long-abandoned luxury resort that has lain derelict for a quarter of a century. The stories of Italian mafia connections, failed government business dealings, and indigenous land rights come together in this episode of Untold Pacific History.

*We apologise for any offence caused by Pa Ariki's incorrect statement in this piece that 'the More family are all dead' in context of the historic family involved in this land dispute. We acknowledge that there are descendants of this family alive today, and that this context was unclear in Pa's statement in this video. 09/06/2021

TE ARA - The Cook Islands Museum of Cultural Enterprise was established in Rarotonga early 2017. It is an exciting new concept in Cook Island Tourism. Te Ara combines a museum, a cafe and a retail gallery, which serves as a business incubator for local artists and businesses.
Te Ara is here to promote Cook Islands made products to visitors from around the world. Important to us is the proud story we tell to support and enrich our economy, our people and our environment.

TE ARA is now taking applications for staff with hospitality, business or cultural experience for a full-time front of house position. They offer training and an opportunity to experience all front of house positions within the business. You would need to make your own way to Rarotonga and be prepared to arrange your own accommodation.

If you want a change of pace, scenery and lifestyle or an opportunity to connect or reestablish links with your Raro community, this is a great opportunity for you.
