Rapa or Rapa Iti (Little Rapa) as it is sometimes called in more recent years (to distinguish it from "Rapa Nui" (Big Rapa), a name for Easter Island), is the largest and only inhabited island of the Bass Islands in French Polynesia. An older name for the island is Oparo Rapa Iti is located at. It is shaped roughly like a Greek final sigma, with a well-protected central bay, surrounded by a ring of high mountains. The whole island appears very much to be the peak of a sinking volcano, with the bay as the caldera. The area of the island is 40 km2 (15 sq mi).Its main town, often spelled on maps as Ahurei but pronounced by residents as Ha'urei (where ' denotes a glottal stop) is located on the south side of that bay. The people are Polynesian. In former times warfare is indicated by the 28 ridgetop forts. Today Rapa is home to the Tahitian Choir, in which a third of the island's population sing traditional songs.
