On 28 April 1947, a raft made of balsawood carrying six men and a parrot sailed out of Callao, Peru. The expedition was called KON-TIKI.

Poisson cru is translated as “raw fish” in French. In Tahitian, it is called “ia ota (ee-ah oh-tah).” It is generally considered the national dish of Tahiti and the islands of French Polynesia.
