Tumunu - Bulletin Board of the Cook Islands

Last update: November 3 2019
This is a free, moderated service for Cook Islanders or others to post notices and to discuss subjects of relevance to the Cook Islands. Publication is at the whim and prejudices of the Brewmaster. Maori must be accompanied by an English translation. On any contentious or personal matter you will need to include your e-mail address. No messages will be published if received in capitals only or in lower case letters only or in abbreviated 'text speak'. Material will be edited if overlong, ungrammatical or boring. Postings will be kept until deemed no longer current (usually 30 days). E-mail
Note: Click here for Bereavement Notices and Condolences.

Brewmaster: Please note that we will not publish messages which are not punctuated or those written in 'stream-of-consciousness' style with phrases separated only by a series of full stops. They take too much time to sub-edit and render into English. Also, note the guidelines above concerning Maori and capital letters.

November 3 2019 My name is Juan Ignacio Llopis, I am 27, from Argentina, currently living in New Zealand and holding a working holiday visa. I would like to know if this kind of visa allows me to work in the Cook Islands. I am really interested in visiting the Islands, and being able to work there would be of great help to fund my trip around the Cook Islands. Looking forward to hearing from you.

May 11 2019 I see the Playboy of the Pacific Henry Puna is now angling for a massive pay increase of 40 per cent for Members of Parliament. ItÕs a good thing he doesnÕt have an army at his command like so many South American, African and Asian countries. Then he could enforce his policies without bothering with Parliament. ItÕs about time the silly old biddies who keep Puna in power woke up and elected him and his party out of office. Come on Mamas! T. Rex.

April 10 2019 I am trying to locate long time acquaintances of mine who live in Rarotonga. They are David and Joan Gregg. I do understand that David May have passed away, and I would like to make contact with Joan if that is possible. I can be contacted at this e-mail address: fborns@cox.net Margaret Borns, Chandler, Arizona USA.

We are three investors, one of us is a New Zealand citizen, the other two USA citizens. Are we permitted to open a pearl farm in the Cook Islands, or if such an activity is reserved for Cook Islanders alone? Thank you. If you cannot answer this question who in the Cook Island government can? Thank you. Niko Zinovii, niko@upsidedownanimals.com

Hello, IÕm trying to find anything related to my ancestors with information that my grandmother has provided me with. I was wondering if you have any information about a Tangi Strickland or Vini Teao from 1940Õs to 1970Õs. They were a couple in Aitutaki who had six children, one unfortunately died at the age of three. If not, thatÕs fine, IÕm just trying all my outlets.Thank you so much,Sandina Kaisa Baker. dinabags_11@icloud.com
