My 'PHOENIX RISING'
'RISING OUT OF THE ASHES'
For island dancer Siosiua Lafitani-Tofua'ipangai, "life is like a phoenix rising from the ashes. The transition from young to old is no different from able to disabled; it is the spirit which matters most."
"Our body will soon or later disappear from this immortal world but we'll leave behind with the human civilization the spirit of our works, the best and permanence of our souls and minds will be always in the cultures of people, in their music, stories and memories."
