Alexandra Edwards has been carrying out archaeological fieldwork and ethnographic studies in Rapa Nui (a.k.a. Easter Island) and French Polynesia for the past 12 years. She presently resides in Rapa Nui where she has worked extensively for the Eastern Pacific Research Foundation. She recently participated in an Explorerís Club Flag Expedition to Raivavae, one of French Polynesiaís most remote islands. Originally a film major from Wesleyan University she has worked on three documentaries about Easter Island, Raivavae, and the Society and Marquesas Islands.
She has a special interest in the religion and oral traditions of the Ancient Polynesians and the unique ways traditionally Polynesian concepts manifest themselves differently in the various islands, a legacy she inherited from her father, Edmundo Edwards, one of the major experts on Rapa Nui and Eastern Polynesian history and culture.
|Expedition Staff (whether or not advertised
in our brochures) are usually booked many months in advance
of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even at
very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change
shall not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held
liable or responsible in these circumstances.
