Tahitian ... have you any free/online resources for it?

Mech:
Unfortunately not, and the information is scarcier than about hawaiian or maorian. Actually Tahitian is an endangered language :/

You can look for the coursebooks by Darrell Tryon.

In the meantime, enjoy the Moana's "Where you are" in Tahitian dub :)

Sadly, it's true. Many polynesian languages are endangered :(
