If you guessed Easter Island in last week’s Trivia Tuesday then you are truly a travel trivia master. Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui, is an island in the Pacific Ocean. It is famous for having 887 statues known as moai, which were sculpted by the early Rapa Nui people. Each statue represents the deceased head of a family ancestry line. With its 5,800 residents over 60% are direct descendants of the native Rapa Nui people. Rapa Nui was given the name Easter Island by the first European visitor Jacob Roggeveen who was a Dutch explorer. He named it Easter Island because he arrived on Easter Sunday.
