About Rai Chaze

Rai CHAZE was born in Tahiti. Her parents are both mixed- blood polynesian. After several years spent in the USA, she returned to Tahiti. The links she had developed with Henri Hiro, a poet, a cultural renaissance leader, playwright, filmmaker, anti-nuclear activist and a influential person in Polynesian History, tightened over the years. She has published two collections of poetry, "Toriri" and "I Te Rai Ra", several short stories and poems in Tahiti and Hawaii. In 1990, she published her first book "Vai, the river in a cloudless sky", which is also the first work of prose in contemporary native literature. In October 2009, her first book for children, ‘Tahitians Tales’ was published by Les Editions Cornac, in Montreal, Canada, specializing in children publications. Apart from numerous publications in anthologies or literary magazines, she published "Before the rainy season". This novel invites the reader into the life of the islands through encounters and memories resulting in a saga spread across Polynesian History. Her recently published, 'Snowfall in the Tuamotu', a children's Christmas story, was also produced as a theatrical performance. With "The imaginary tales Tahiti" series, she offers a collection of short stories for children, between myths and epics, providing an opportunity for local artists to illustrate this series and showcase their talent.

Rai CHAZE est née à Tahiti. Ses parents sont tous deux métis polynésiens. Après plusieurs années de sa jeunesse passées aux USA, elle revient à Tahiti. Les liens qu'elle a développés au cours du temps avec Henri HIRO, (poète, dramaturge, cinéaste, écologiste, activiste anti-nucléaire, leader de la renaissance culturelle), homme-clé de l'Histoire de la Polynésie, se resserrent. Elle publie deux recueils de poésie, Toriri et I Te Rai ra, plusieurs nouvelles et poèmes à Tahiti et à Hawaii. En 1990, elle publie son premier livre "Vai, la rivière au ciel sans nuage", qui est également le premier ouvrage de prose littéraire de la littérature autochtone contemporaine. En Octobre 2009, son premier ouvrage destiné aux enfants, Contes Tahitiens, est publié par la maison d'édition de jeunesse de Montréal, Les Éditions Cornac. Hormis les nombreuses parutions en ouvrages collectifs ou de revues littéraires, elle publia «Avant la saison des pluies», cette œuvre fait participer le lecteur à la vie des îles, au gré des rencontres et des souvenirs, tout au long des dernières années et l'entraîne, dans une saga, à travers l'histoire de Tahiti. «Il a neigé aux Tuamotu» est un conte pour enfant qui donna lieu à une représentation théâtrale.
