Dying life of the tribe: Spectacular pictures by British photographer capture the people who are in danger of disappearing forever

In Polynesian mythology (Tuamotus), Faumea is a Polynesian ocean goddess. Tangaroa and Faumea had two sons together: Tu-Nui-Ka-Rere and Turi-A-Faumea. Later, Turi-A-Faumea's wife Hina-Arau-Riki was kidnapped by the octopus-demon Rogo-Tumu-Here. Faumea helped Tangaroa and their sons rescue Hina by withdrawing the opposing winds into the sweat of her armpit and then releasing them to power the heroes' canoes.
