Hinanui Cauchois

Hinanui Cauchois

Hinanui Cauchois has been the museum’s new director since December 1, 2023, succeeding Miriama Bono.

Originally from Mo’orea, Hinanui holds a PhD in archaeology from the University of Hawaii, obtained in 2015, and specializes in Polynesian and Society Island archaeology. She is also a graduate of the Université de Paris-I Panthéon-Sorbonne.

She has carried out numerous archaeological missions in French Polynesia, under the aegis of the Department of Culture and Heritage. A specialist in Polynesian cultural heritage, she wrote the book on weaving published by Éditions au vent des Îles in 2013.

Alongside archaeology, Hinanui has taught history-geography at secondary level in Tahiti and Ra’iātea, and the history of ancient Polynesian societies in higher education.

She has also contributed to the scientific updating of curriculum content on archaeology and ancient societies for secondary schools.

She has also served as technical advisor to two different ministries in 2008-2009 and 2023, in charge of archaeological heritage and more recently higher education. In this capacity, Hinanui helped launch the UNESCO World Heritage listing applications for the Taputapuātea marae in Rai’ātea and the Marquesas Islands in 2009.

Today, her mission is to help develop the institution for all and links with museums in the region and beyond.
