The preservation of our Polynesian cultures rests on our ability to educate our future generations. Through events such as the PACC Fest, we hope to provide spaces where great minds from across the world can gather to share knowledge and information before it is lost. We are constantly looking for ways to expand educational opportunities for all by creating more centers in which people can gather and learn about Polynesian arts and culture. Our team is currently working with community partners to develop programs for eager learners enticed by cultural knowledge. Lastly, we hope to empower members of the next generation by connecting individuals with mentors that will help to develop their passions and potential in fields such as education, music, arts, medicine, sports, and business. We also hope to support those seeking higher educational opportunities by providing scholarships for students with pursuits aimed towards helping our Polynesian people to flourish.
In our current political landscape, it is important that Polynesians be given a voice to ensure the prosperity of our people. Though there are current federal policies in place that offer pecuniary support, it simply is not enough to ensure that our people will be able to thrive. One way to solidify our future is to revive old ideas of community and family in order to unite to promote economic growth and prosperity for all Polynesians around the world. Through the support of small and big businesses alike, our mission is to create job opportunities for those seeking to build better lives for themselves and their families. In addition to the development of businesses, our vision is to develop multimedia platforms that feature our unique art and culture.
Preservation of arts and culture
The preservation of Polynesian arts and culture is the driving force that informs the decisions and partnerships that we make. Art and culture, which encompasses language, protocol, religion, stories, and more, are what ground us in our past so that we can make informed decisions that help us to create a better future for all. Through the preservation of this knowledge, we hope to unify people separated by vast oceans and landmasses by highlighting the common threads that connect us together. Through language, food, oral histories, genealogical origin stories, religions, and our connection to the world, we unite ourselves as a Polynesian race. Together we will continue with our community partners to ensure this knowledge be accessible for years to come.
