Who is Pasifika Australia?
We are a small group of ANU students and staff who are passionate about equity and identity issues affecting Pacific Islander communities in Australia, and who value culture and education as pathways to addressing these issues. Many of us are Pacific Islanders, and all of us are a part of Oceania.
Pasifika Australia began in 2008. For information on our past activities, please see here
