“Nailed to the mast are the colours of Io, the Hidden One.

Our goal is Savaiki, so let her be swift, let her prow sing

as it slices the skin of the sea.”

Our Goal is Savaiki is a collection of poems by Cook Islands-Kiwi poet Alistair Te Ariki Campbell. The poems selected celebrate Alistair’s connections to Tongareva (Penrhyn) where his mother, Teu, was born.

Each poem has been illustrated by Heimata Tinipese (Pese) Kietonga, an emerging Cook Islands artist who is family to Alistair, or Papa Teariki, as her family knows him.

“Meitaki ranuinui, the art and design of this book is in perfect harmony with the poems. One of my Year 9 students chose one of his poems about Tangaroa for me to read at the end of class. I think the art and design are fantastic. Kia manuia.
