17: A private island paradise

18: The island was first inhabited by Polynesian settlers around the 4th century. Its previous Polynesian name was Vava'u. As there is no B in the Tahitian language, it is actually called Pora Pora, but early visitors misheard it. The first European sighting was made by Jakob Roggeveen in 1722. James Cook sighted the island in 1770 and landed that same year. The London Missionary Society arrived in 1820 and founded a Protestant church in 1890. Bora Bora was an independent kingdom until 1888 when its last queen Teriimaevarua III was forced to abdicate by the French who annexed the island as a colony. | The original name of the island in the Tahitian language might be better rendered as "Pora Pora", meaning "First Born"; an early transcription found in 18th- and 19th-century accounts, is "Bolabolla" or "Bollabolla". However, the discoverers misunderstood and thought the inhabitants said "Bora Bora" - the name stuck. | BORA BORA | DECEMBER 18-19, 2012
