We were so fortunate and blessed to be able to celebrate the launch party of the Pacific Islander Health Board of Washington! Led by amazing Pacific Islanders, in true indigenous fashion, they celebrated with 'ono food, talking story, delicious fruit drinks by Otai Kingdom, the must-have Electric Boogie, and performances by the University of Washington's Polynesian Student Alliance and, your own, Huraiti Mana! We always enjoy sharing what we can of 'Ōlelo Hawai'i (Hawaiian language), Hula, 'Ori Tahiti (Tahitian dance), and Reo Tahiti (Tahitian language) across Seattle and more -- but it is truly special to be able to share with our Pacific Islander communities. We had a fantastic time connecting and reconnecting with the leaders in our community of all ages, sharing laughs and excitement for what the future holds for our islander 'ohana here in Wakinekona, Washington. Māuruuru roa to Lika, Toka, Lynette, Taffy and all at U.T.O.P.I.A. for all of the beautiful work you do for our 'ohana, our feti'i, our families.
