As attempted in 1937 by Thor Heyerdahl, Marie-Thérèse and Bengt Danielsson also wanted to settle in the Marquesas Islands in 1951, but living in Fatu Iva was too difficult. They then settled in a valley near Puamau on the island of Hiva Oa - where Gauguin had already lived. Like Raroia in the Tuamotu Archipelago, these "Forgotten islands of the South Seas" will become their living reality (book in French).
Tahiti autrefois is devoted to the prehistory of the Society Islands. Marie-Thérèse and Bengt Danielsson reconstructed the great migrations and ancient way of life in Tahiti from the work of archaeologists, the Journals of the first contacts and artifacts from museums scattered around the world (book in French).
