Workshops are offered in re’o riu (ancestral  song), ori (Rapanui dance), hoko (ancestral activation dances), takona (body painting using ancestral techniques), ukulele, and maramarama tupuna (which combines many traditional disciplines with on-site history lessons, and visits to share with knowledgeable elderly Rapa Nui.

NGO Toki participates very actively in projects to protect and care for the environment which are important for sustainability and facing the great ecological challenges that exist on Rapa Nui. They know that to make real and concrete changes it is important to join hands with the community, businesses, organized society and the local government.
