  • About the Artist: Selwyn Muru
    • Abstract: Photo by Margaret Nepia-MuruSelwyn Muru (Ngāti Kuri, Te Aupōuri), one of New Zealand's most senior Māori artists, is a tribal repository of knowledge, painter, sculptor, playwright, musician, pioneer broadcaster, fisherman, educator, and former orator for New Zealand's governor-general, Sir Anand Satyanand.Muru first studied art under Katerina Mataira at Northland College. He later founded Te Toi Hou, the Māori Art Department at Elam School of Fine Arts, and taught Māori whaikōrero (oratory) classes for the University of Auckland's Māori Studies Department; he was also official Māori orator for the University of Auckland. He acted alongside Kiri Te Kanawa in the film Runaway. He wrote the first Māori-language play ... Read More

  • Climate Change and the Imagining of Migration: Emerging Discourses on
           Kiribati's Land Purchase in Fiji
    • Abstract: Scientific estimates suggest that the low-lying coral atolls of the Pacific will be especially affected by climate change. The vulnerability of atoll islands and atoll states results from a specific constellation of physical, ecological, social, and economic conditions, including the lopsided relationship between small land area and lengthy coastlines, and the problems of coastal erosion, limited drinking water, high population density, paucity of economic resources, and low incomes (Barnett and Adger 2003, 322–323; Nurse and others 2014, 1623, 1634; Connell 2015, 1). Recent studies of the changing morphology of atolls in the western and central Pacific stress the stability that these islands have so far ... Read More

  • Charting Pacific (Studies) Waters: Evidence of Teaching and Learning
    • Abstract: Editor's note: This article is being published posthumously. The editorial board feels it is fitting though partial testimony to some aspects of the inspiring work of Teresia Teaiwa, whose life was cut short in March 2017. A shorter version of this paper, titled "Flying while Firmly Grounded: Pacific Studies as the Fine Art of Helping Students Use Their Wings and Find Their Feet," was presented at the February 2016 "Teaching Oceania" workshop at the Center for Pacific Islands Studies, University of Hawai'i–Mānoa. A longer version of the paper was submitted to The Contemporary Pacific and accepted by the editorial board with minor revisions in late 2016. At that time, Teresia discussed the intended modifications ... Read More

  • Losing Oceania to the Pacific and the World
    • Abstract: Greg Dening once mentioned to a friend that writing "is like dropping a stone into a deep well and waiting for the splash." No, the friend replied, writing "is like dropping a rose petal into the Grand Canyon and waiting for the bang" (Dening 1998, xx). Back in 2000, at the University of Hawai'i conference celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Center for Pacific Islands Studies, Vince Diaz helped me endure the wait by putting images and passages from my book Upon a Stone Altar (1988) onto a t-shirt. It was splash enough for me in the days before Facebook and other forms of instantaneous social media. We lost Greg in March of 2008. Vince is still very much with us, though. I cite both as sources of inspiration ... Read More

  • The Region in Review: International Issues and Events, 2016
    • Abstract: Debates over climate action, West Papua, fisheries, and trade continued as a feature of regional affairs in 2016, often dividing Pacific governments and their international partners. The election of Donald Trump as US president in November set the stage for these divisions to continue, given Trump's statements during the election campaign on climate change and America's new directions in foreign policy.Other global events during the year—including the Brexit referendum in June, international movement of refugees and economic slowdown in China, Russia, and India—will have significant regional implications. Even as vibrant Pacific diplomacy saw advances on climate, oceans, and fisheries policy, the new era of ... Read More

  • Fiji
    • Abstract: Fiji's vulnerability to climate change was tested throughout 2016 with cyclones, the most powerful being Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston on 20 January 2016. Winston was the strongest cyclone ever recorded in the history of Fiji or the South Pacific Basin. This category five cyclone left forty-four people dead and at least thirty-five thousand people homeless in Fiji (Fiji Sun Online 2016; Thackray 2016).Recovery efforts have been slow. At the beginning of 2017, almost a year after Winston, tents were still being used in parts of Fiji for housing and for schools. The devastation has added not only to the Fiji government's ongoing financial burdens but also to its long-term responsibilities to mitigate the impacts of ... Read More

  • Papua
    • Abstract: At the end of 2014, thanks to the strong commitment of Vanuatu's elders, Papuan leaders signed the Saralana Declaration that served as the basis to establish the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ulmwp) in Vanuatu. This step symbolized the unification of Papuan leadership, which includes the Federal Republic of West Papua (frwp), the West Papua National Coalition of Liberation (wpncl), and the National Parliament for West Papua (npwp). Since then, the umbrella organization has become the rising star in representing the Papuan resistance movements at international fora, especially in the Pacific region.Five Papuan leaders from different generations and time zones were unanimously appointed to run the ...

  • Solomon Islands
    • Abstract: Solomon Islands is vulnerable to natural catastrophes like cyclones, tsunamis, floods, and earthquakes as it is in the "Pacific Ring of Fire." For instance, in 1976, a huge earthquake displaced many people, mostly from South Guadalcanal, who are now relocated to other parts of the island. Likewise, Cyclone Namu in 1996 saw the destruction of schools and homes and also resulted in the relocation of villages, schools, and infrastructure. Selwyn College, a senior secondary school in the country, was moved from the east of Honiara to West Guadalcanal as a result of the effects of Namu. In recent years, the frequency of natural disasters occurring is particularly high (Catford 2014). The United Nations Office for the ... Read More

  • Vanuatu
    • Abstract: Following one of the most tumultuous years in Vanuatu's history with the trial, conviction, and imprisonment of fourteen members of Parliament (mps) on charges of bribery and corruption, there was some hope at the beginning of 2016 that things could only get better, though remnants of past events still remained to be dealt with. Unfortunately, the country faced serious economic problems stemming from the destruction brought in March 2015 by Cyclone Pam—a category five storm that ravaged the archipelago's eastern and southern islands as well as the nation's capital of Port Vila. The surprise dissolution of Parliament in November 2015, which triggered a snap election, was not welcomed initially but did have the ... Read More

  • Articulating Rapa Nui: Polynesian Cultural Politics in a Latin American
           Nation-State by Riet Delsing (review)
    • Abstract: Like Franz Kafka's novel The Castle, there are different entrances to the "house" of the indigenous people, language, and culture of Rapa Nui: how one enters will assemble the affective significance of the island differently, creating distinct lines of connections and disconnections among the Rapa Nui people, colonial Chilean social forms, and global processes. Prior to reflecting on the actual content of Articulating Rapa Nui: Polynesian Cultural Politics in a Latin American Nation-State, it is important to note the entrance framed by the book's title and its dedication, "to the people of Rapa Nui." Riet Delsing assumes foreign nomenclature that contrasts the island name "Rapa Nui" with the term "Rapanui," which ... Read More

  • Staking Claim: Settler Colonialism and Racialization in Hawai'i by Judy
           Rohrer (review)
    • Abstract: It is perhaps unusual for an author to appear so visibly in an academic text. However, in Judy Rohrer's Staking Claim, there she is, body slackened and seasick in the waters off O'ahu's western shoreline, contemplating Disney's Aulani Resort in all of its glossy commercialization of Hawaiian culture. In this way, she offers herself up to readers both literally and metaphorically to grapple with the complexity of Hawai'i's settler colonial history and present and in doing so walks a tightrope: writing about whiteness in Hawai'i, as a self-identified haole from Hawai'i, with anecdotal evidence recalled from living in Hawai'i, while working hard to avoid centering haole positionality in an assessment of the meaning of ...

  • Domination and Resistance: The United States and the Marshall Islands
           during the Cold War by Martha Smith-Norris (review)
    • Abstract: Anthropologists, journalists, and filmmakers examining the impacts of US militarism in the Marshall Islands are numerous and sometimes trip over one another during research. It is refreshing to have a trained historian provide perspectives from a different discipline, as each field of study brings its own methods and foci.Martha Smith-Norris's book supplements our collective knowledge about US Cold War activities in the Marshall Islands in many important ways. The sixty-five pages of endnotes and bibliography, as well as many photos in the text, include resources not discussed in other examinations of this topic and bring into clarity large-scale patterns of US behavior. Rather than treat US nuclear weapons testing ... Read More

  • Maisa: The Chamoru Girl Who Saves Guåhan dir. by Michael Q Ceballos
           (review)
    • Abstract: "Tåta, malago' yu' umegga' Maisa!" is one of the most ubiquitous phrases one hears in my household. Translated into English, what my two-year-old daughter is enthusiastically saying is "Daddy, I want to watch Maisa!" Maisa: The Chamoru Girl Who Saves Guåhan was created from a brilliant collaboration between the Chamorro Studies Division of the Guam Department of Education and Twiddle Productions in Honolulu and is the first animated film to use Fino' Chamoru, the indigenous language of the Chamorro people of the Mariana Islands, as its primary language. Released in December 2015, the film retells the important Chamorro story of "I Famalao'an Ni Gumoggue Iya Guåhan" (The Women Who Saved Guåhan).In this cherished ... Read More

  • Finding Meaning: Kaona and Contemporary Hawaiian Literature by Brandy
           Nālani McDougall (review)
    • Abstract: According to the Hawaiian political scientist Noenoe Silva, when Queen Lili'uokalani was imprisoned in 1896, she received messages smuggled to her in newspapers that were used to wrap flowers. She would smuggle messages out in return. These messages were publically printed despite the fact that the usurping Republic of Hawai'i officials were capable of reading Hawaiian and used this fluency to censor newspapers at this time. However, the communiqués between the queen and her supporters were hidden in kaona, "a practice of layering and veiling meaning as well as of finding meaning" (5). So while her captors could grasp the literal meaning of the printed words, the deeper political meaning, consisting of messages ... Read More

  • Facing the Spears of Change: The Life and Legacy of John Papa 'Ī'ī by
           Marie Alohalani Brown (review)
    • Abstract: More than a century after the 17 January 1893 coup that toppled Ke Aupuni Mō'ī o Kō Hawai'i Pae'āina (the Constitutional Monarchy of the Hawaiian Islands), we, in academia and the general public, know relatively little about the 'Ōiwi (Native) men and women who helped lead the Hawaiian nation prior to the Islands coming under non-Native control. In Facing the Spears of Change: The Life and Legacy of John Papa 'Ī'ī, Marie Alohalani Brown takes up the task of bringing us all much closer to an 'Ōiwi man whom US Consul to Hawai'i Gorham D Gilman characterized as "the most important civilian in the nation" (109). In doing so, Brown, an assistant professor of religion at the University of Hawai'i, seeks a broader ... Read More

  • Auē Rona by Reihana Robinson, and: Between the Kindling and the Blaze:
           Reflections on the Concept of Mana by Ben Brown, and: Entangled Islands by
           Serie Barford, and: Night Swimming by Kiri Piahana-Wong (review)
    • Abstract: Pacific Islander poets have long imagined and reimagined stories of origin, land, ocean, and gods in ways that mirror the complex relationships we have with one another and our place as people of this ocean. Reihana Robinson's debut collection, Auē Rona, is a stunning example of the power of imagination and the importance of recasting Pacific stories. Robinson's collection directly addresses the Māori story of Rona—the woman in the moon—in a voice that is powerful, unapologetic, and cutting. Through reimagining the voice and desires of Rona, Robinson sheds a nuanced and unwavering light on gendered constructions of will, desire, and power in the context of Māori storytelling.Robinson centers her collection on the ...
