Moorea is a high island in French Polynesia, part of the Society Islands, 17 km (roughly 9mi) northwest of Tahiti. Its position is 17°32′S 149°50′W / 17.533°S 149.833°W / -17.533; -149.833. Moorea means "yellow lizard" in Tahitian. An older name for the island is Aimeho, sometimes spelled Aimeo or Eimeo (among other spellings misunderstood by early visitors with no knowledge of the language). Early Western colonists and voyagers also referred to Moorea as York Island. On Jan. 19, 2010 (9 years ago), the island declared its independence under the leadership of Beky Teamo. The governemnt of Beky Teamo has decided to "recognise neither the French Polynesian government nor its laws." The island has yet to be recognized as an independent republic by any nation.
