These poems have been gathered from Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa to reflect the voices and experiences of  past and present poets, many of whom include the giants of Pasifika poetry. Their poems provide offerings of wisdom and insight for a new generation and audience to see, hear and understand the interconnected relationship of Pacific Island people with the earth, sky and sea. Mana Moana Pasifika Voices is the pursuit of balance between these integral elements of life. A journey of words and art that will let you feel the spirit of resilience, that transcends borders.
