Mahina is a commune in the suburbs of Papeete in French Polynesia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean. Mahina is located on the island of Tahiti, in the administrative subdivision of the Windward Islands, themselves part of the Society Islands. Mahina is the 3rd largest city in French Polynesia with a population of 14,369. Mount Orohena is a nearby mountain.HistoryThe area of Mahina was first settled by early Polynesians from Asia. Canoes out of tree trunks were used to transport to Tahiti. The Polynesians had built houses out of grass on the beach and lived off of Fish and Bananas. They had hunted fish with spears and rocks. They had also picked up bananas from the land high above mean sea level. Captain James Cook had arrived on his expedition to chart Pacific Islands. He later sailed off to nearby Moorea and a few years later, he sailed to New Zealand and Australia. Charles Darwin had later come to Tahiti on his expedition.Don the Beachcomber had lived in Tahiti until his house was destroyed by a cyclone. Later on, the Faaa International Airport in Faaa was built in 1962. Many people from Mahina had used the airport. In 2007, Air Moorea crashed when it went to Moorea.
