  • Guam
    • Abstract: The year ended on a high note in Guam, as the island had the honor of hosting the 12th Festival of Pacific Arts (FestPac), 22 May–4 June 2016. FestPac, sponsored by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community, is often called “the cultural Olympics of the Pacific.” Close to thirty Island nations come together to share their arts and culture with each other and the rest of the world. More than 2,700 delegates made their way to Guam for the thirteen-day event, which showed the breadth of cultural diversity of the Pacific and the various ways in which Pacific peoples are perpetuating and reinvigorating their heritages.FestPac experienced early logistical issues. At the opening ceremony, delegates were forced to stand for ... Read More

  • Tonga
    • Abstract: The new government of ‘Akilisi Pōhiva was tested to the limit by a number of political, economic, and policy issues after it came to power as a result of the 2014 election, the second under the amended 2010 constitution. For a reform-oriented government with minimal experience yet loaded with ambition and high expectations from the people, the stark reality of transforming and modernizing a society steeped in conservative traditional values, under the patronage of a monarch and a class of nopili (nobles), was a major challenge. Despite some of the institutional and symbolic reforms of the previous decade, some of the social issues of the previous era remained and frustrated plans for changes. One such issue was ...

  • About the Artist: Lisa Reihana
    • Abstract: Through a pioneering practice combining photography, video, and installation, Lisa Reihana has achieved what most artists only ever dream about: she makes a full-time living from her art. Of Māori Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Tū, and Ngāti Hine descent, she has had her work exhibited in museums, art galleries, and art festivals around the world, including the Auckland Art Gallery, Brooklyn Museum, University of Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in Queensland, October Gallery in London, Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Center in New Caledonia, and Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington.Photo by Moana NepiaIn 2017, Reihana represents Aotearoa/New Zealand at the Venice Biennale with ...

  • Walls of Empowerment: Reading Public Murals in a Kanaka Maoli Context
    • Abstract: Every wall is a gate.Space is not a scientific object removed from ideology and politics; it has always been political and strategic. If space has an air of neutrality and indifference with regard to its contents and thus seems to be “purely” formal, the epitome of rational abstraction, it is precisely because it has been occupied and used, and has already been the focus of past processes whose traces are not always evident on the landscape. Space has been shaped and molded from historical and natural elements, but this has been a political process. Space is political and ideological. It is a product literally filled with ideologies.As one of many built artifacts that occupy—indeed mold—the physical and social ... Read More

  • Traveling Houses: Performing Diasporic Relationships in Europe
    • Abstract: Far from home, Pacific houses not only perform and enact Pacific identities in global scenic spaces such as theme parks or museums but, over time, also produce new identities and relationships in trans- or bi-local constellations.1 Surprisingly, starting in the nineteenth century, quite a number of such houses traveled to Europe and the United States, mostly from Aotearoa/New Zealand and Sāmoa. The first traveling wharenui (great or meeting house), Mataatua, was removed from Whakatāne in 1879, against significant resistance, and transported to an exhibition in Sydney in 1880 (Mane-Wheoki 1993; Allen 1998). Mataatua was subsequently embezzled by New Zealand’s colonial administration and sent to London, to finally ... Read More

  • CEDAW Smokescreens: Gender Politics in Contemporary Tonga
    • Abstract: Tonga remains one of only six countries that have not ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (cedaw), which was adopted in 1979 by the United Nations General Assembly. In March 2015, the Tongan government made a commitment to the United Nations that it would finally ratify cedaw, albeit with some reservations. The prime minister, ‘Akilisi Pōhiva, called it “a historic day for all Tongans . . . in support of our endeavour to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women and girls” (Matangi Tonga 2015e).1 However, the decision to ratify was met with public protests and petitions, and in June, the Privy Council, headed by the king, announced that the proposed ...

  • Federated States of Micronesia
    • Abstract: The period covered by this review was one of reckoning for the long-term sustainability of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) as a political and economic entity. The FSM engaged in a renewed effort to stimulate economic development, appreciate the fragile natural ecosystems long enjoyed and safeguarded by the people of the FSM, and reexamine the desirability of what is perhaps the country’s most consequential bilateral relationship. As the scheduled termination of the major financial provisions of the amended Compact of Free Association (cofa) between the FSM and the United States nears, the FSM’s national and state governments—as well as the general populaces they serve—grappled with the purpose, promise ...

  • Marshall Islands
    • Abstract: For the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), the period under review saw the passing of several traditional and political leaders and distinguished community members. Most notable was the death of Iroojḷapḷap (Paramount Chief), Senator, and former President Jurelang Zedkaia, who suffered a fatal heart attack in October 2015. In addition to overseeing landholding across Mājro (Majuro) Atoll as its traditional leader, Zedkaia served in the Nitijeḷā (Parliament) for twenty-four years and as the nation’s president from 2009 to 2012 after he was elected to replace Litokwa Tomeing, who had been removed from office by a vote of no confidence. Zedkaia was honored with a month of national mourning and a state funeral ... Read More

  • Republic of Palau
    • Abstract: The period under review was one that brought about landmark policies and historic moments for the Republic of Palau and for its leadership, including issues related to infrastructure development, climate change, and the ocean. The year brought together both elected and traditional leaders to address issues regarding the welfare of the people. It was also a time of transition as important leaders who had contributed greatly to the country’s national development passed on and others stepped into the political scene to lead as Palau continued to advance its goals of national development.The Republic of Palau made an ambitious attempt to further conserve its marine resources through legislation by declaring its waters ...

  • Cook Islands
    • Abstract: The year under review was a pivotal one as the Cook Islands celebrated its fiftieth anniversary of independence. Over the last twelve months, immediate and longer-term concerns have seen old relationships revisited and new ones forged. In this review, particular attention is given to highlighting the leadership of women in advancing the Cook Islands across different sectors and issues as political powers continue to shift and take hold.Although women are increasingly elected and appointed as parliamentarians, heads of government departments, chairs and directors of statutory bodies and private entities, and customary titleholders, there appears to be little progress made toward transforming the gendered nature of ...

  • French Polynesia
    • Abstract: In the often-turbulent recent political history of French Polynesia, the year under review was a relatively calm one. Against all odds, Edouard Fritch consolidated his power as the country’s president, transforming his tenuous tenure in office into one based on a comparatively solid majority, and uniting under his leadership all political forces that oppose both independence and Fritch’s predecessor Gaston Flosse. Meanwhile, for the first time in over a decade, the country hosted a French presidential visit, which made some hopeful impressions, but at the same time the French government continues to stubbornly refuse to engage with United Nations institutions to work with them toward the country’s ...

  • Māori Issues
    • Abstract: Over the past year we lost a number of leaders who spent their lives fighting for justice for Māori. In September 2015, Lady Emily Latimer of Whakatōhea passed away. She was a staunch supporter of Māori in her work with the Māori Women’s Welfare League and Māori Wardens and was a tireless supporter of her husband, Sir Graham Latimer, who died nine months after his wife in June 2016; he had chaired the New Zealand Māori Council for many years. September 2015 was a particularly sad month. Two of our best-known clay artists, Manos Nathan and Colleen Waata Urlich, passed away within a fortnight of each other. Of Te Rōroa, Ngāpuhi, and Ngāti Whātua, Manos had an extensive background in woodcarving and sculpture, having ... Read More

  • Norfolk Island
    • Abstract: The year under review was a fateful one for Norfolk Island, and indeed for the entire Pacific Islands region, as it marked the unprecedented recolonization of an island territory by its administrative power without the territory’s consent, an anachronistic act going against the current of decolonization of the past six decades and comparable in modern history only to the reactionary French policies toward its Pacific possessions from the late 1950s to the mid-1980s. Australia’s recolonizing policies sparked an outburst of Norfolk Island nationalism and a well-organized resistance movement struggling both locally and globally for the restoration of democracy to the island community.A British colony settled in 1856 ...

  • Pitcairn
    • Abstract: The islands of Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie, and Oeno (commonly known as Pitcairn) make up a single territory, the last remaining United Kingdom Overseas Territory (ukot) in the Pacific Ocean. Pitcairn, the only inhabited island of the group, had a total resident population of thirty-nine—a historically low figure—at the start of 2016. The entire population lives in the lone settlement, Adams-town. The only way of accessing the island is by sea, but because of the difficult terrain, ships must moor offshore, with longboats operating between the ships and Bounty Bay. Due to its isolation, its small and aging population, and the high level of subsidy that is given by the UK government, there are concerns over the ... Read More

  • Rapa Nui
    • Abstract: During the review period, Rapa Nui national leaders affirmed movement toward self-determination in the context of local, state, and global biopolitical forces that threaten the sustainable future of the Rapa Nui people, territory, and resources. Engaging the spirit of Angata, the first Rapa Nui woman to valiantly challenge such forces as they articulated in 1914 (McCall 1997, 117), many political voices and actions for social justice by leading contemporary Rapa Nui women are highlighted in this review, including Lolita Tuki, Erity Teave, Elisa Riroroko, Anakena Manutomatoma, Mama Piru (Piru Hucke Atan), and Marisol Hito.Conflict over the March 2015 reclamation of “ancestral lands” (kāiŋa tupuna) and “ancestral ...

  • Kuleana and Commitment: Working Toward a Collaborative Hawaiian
           Archaeology by Kathleen L Kawelu (review)
    • Abstract: Kathleen Kawelu, associate professor of anthropology at the University of Hawai‘i–Hilo, is to be commended for venturing into the sensitive terrain of relations between archaeologists in Hawai‘i and Kānaka Maoli (Native Hawaiians); her book, Kuleana and Commitment: Working Toward a Collaborative Hawaiian Archaeology, is an honest attempt to bridge cultural, racial, and historic chasms. Despite leaving a few questions unexplored, it succeeds admirably in raising issues that too often emerge only at heated community meetings related to particular land development projects, where they are compressed into sound bites for the evening news.In the introduction, Kawelu divulges that the intent of the book is to explore ...

  • Guam Museum/Guam and Chamorro Education Facility (review)
    • Abstract: On 26 May 2016, the Guam and Chamorro Education Facility, better known as the Guam Museum, temporarily opened its doors to the public. This preview was the result of over eighty years of work to bring a permanent museum space to life. Since the 1930s, the United States has collected Chamorro cultural and historical objects, which the US Navy largely maintained, and the American Legion Mid-Pacific Post 1 founded the original Guam Museum in 1933. Three years later, an executive order by the governor of Guam established the Guam Museum as a government institution, and it was given a small building. The violence and destruction of World War II greatly damaged the collection, so postwar years were used to help regrow ... Read More

  • Ever the Land: A People, A Place, Their Building (review)
    • Abstract: Ever the Land: A People, A Place, Their Building celebrates the Tūhoetribe, the Māori people who live in a heavily forested corner of the North Island of Aotearoa/New Zealand. The Tūhoe filed compensation claims with the Waitangi Commission in 2007 and subsequently decided to allocate nz$15 million for the construction of a large tribal center at the valley entrance of their contested, tragic land. Designed by Ivan Mercep, the center was meant to adhere with the Living Building Challenge, whose stringent standards of sustainability require careful attention to material sourcing and a great deal of compliance documentation. Called Te Uru Tamatua, it was to be the first such building in Aotearoa. In a visually ... Read More

  • Hope at Sea: Possible Ecologies in Oceanic Literature by Teresa Shewry
           (review)
    • Abstract: The attention that environmental historians and critics have directed toward the effects of ecological imperialism on the land is now being turned toward the sea. Viewing the ocean as a vibrant, connective being, teeming with threatened life forms and ecosystems, Teresa Shewry in Hope at Sea engages Oceanic literary texts as both sensitive registers of ecological devastation and regenerative sites of thought and advocacy.Hope at Sea approaches Oceania as a region where “sweeping environmental changes have reshaped life possibilities” (2) and where writers are correspondingly attuned to the relations among human lives and water cycles, watersheds, the ocean, and its inhabitants. Through countering the destructive ... Read More

  • From King Cane to the Last Sugar Mill: Agricultural Technology and the
           Making of Hawai‘i’s Premier Crop by C Allan Jones and Robert V Osgood
           (review)
    • Abstract: From King Cane to the Last Sugar Mill is a thorough interdisciplinary analysis of the agricultural technology used to cultivate sugarcane in the Hawaiian Islands, starting with the plant’s earliest cultivation by Polynesian settlers circa ad 500 and ending with the last remaining sugar company on the island of Maui in 2014. C Allan Jones and Robert V Osgood balance a detailed discussion of the technological advancements of the sugar industry with the broader social, political, and economic contexts that underpin the rise and fall of the industry in Hawai‘i. As agricultural scientists who worked for the Hawaiian Sugar Planters’ Association, Jones and Osgood offer expert analysis of the industry’s technology and ... Read More

    • Abstract: Resulting from a posthumous collaboration, as explained in Marjorie Crocombe’s preface, the three massive volumes of Southern Cook Islands Customary Law, History and Society synthesize Ron Crocombe’s prior publications on Cook Islands culture and society as recontextualized and expanded on by Ross Holmes. A barrister and solicitor whose practice includes the High Courts of New Zealand and the Cook Islands Privy Council, Holmes provides commentary on archival materials and perspectives not available to Crocombe at the time of his groundbreaking work on land tenure and law in the Cook Islands in the 1960s. Holmes also provides the framing device across the volumes: the need to document and support the legal standing ... Read More

  • Greed and Grievance: Ex-Militants’ Perspectives on the Conflict in
           Solomon Islands 1998–2003 by Matthew G Allen (review)
    • Abstract: Reading Greed and Grievance: ExMilitants’ Perspectives on the Conflict in Solomon Islands 1998–2003 by Matthew G Allen reminded me of several things. First, it reminded me of the civil uprising since 1998; the militant rule and activities then in towns and rural villages; the various attempts to attain peace, particularly through the Townsville Peace Agreement in 2000 that resulted in the cessation of overt fighting; and people’s reception of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (ramsi) in 2003. These observed behaviors and events persuaded me to learn more about the perceptions of ex-militants in the conflict. I also wondered what these ex-militants could relay to an expatriate scholar like Allen who ... Read More

  • Unearthing the Polynesian Past: Explorations and Adventures of an Island
           Archaeologist by Patrick Vinton Kirch (review)
    • Abstract: Most attempts at synthesizing the archaeology of the Pacific Islands have presented the big picture of human migration and adaptation to these diverse and insular environments over the last 3,500 years, none yet exceeding Patrick Vinton Kirch’s book On the Road of the Winds (2000). In the twenty-four chapters of Unearthing the Polynesian Past, Kirch instead presents a personalized account of the conflict between the development of scientific theory, the politics and funding of research institutions, and the political and logistical challenges of conducting archaeological research with indigenous communities over the last fifty years. Hypotheses will stand if data are repeatable and testable, but in archaeological ... Read More

  • He Nae Ākea: Bound Together (review)
    • Abstract: On 19 March 2016, as part of the He Nae Ākea: Bound Together exhibit, the ‘ahu‘ula (feathered cloak) and mahiole (feathered helmet) of Hawai‘i Island chief Kalani‘ōpu‘u returned to Hawai‘i for the first time since they were gifted to Captain James Cook at Kealakekua Bay in 1779. These garments, reserved for Hawaiian ali‘i (chiefs), are similar to many other feathered pieces from Hawai‘i, including a number of other ‘ahu‘ula that were presented to Cook and his men at that time, but Kalani‘ōpu‘u was wearing these two specific pieces right before he presented them to Cook. As items that were worn by the great chief—who was an acclaimed warrior in his own right but also held the distinction of being the uncle of ... Read More

  • Talanoa: Building a Pasifika Research Culture ed. by Peggy
           Fairbairn-Dunlop (review)
    • Abstract: Talanoa: Building a Pasifika Research Culture showcases twelve chapters from both established and emerging researchers of Pacific Islander descent. Its title, according to editors Peggy Fairbairn-Dunlop and Eve Coxon, refers to an online network that links New Zealand and Pacific Island universities and serves as a channel for sharing research ideas and findings among Pasifika students and researchers (also known as the Pacific Post Graduate Talanoa series). Chapters in this volume come from works shared during the first five years of the Talanoa series (2007–2012).The first chapter, written by Fairbairn-Dunlop, provides a brief overview of the Talanoa series during this first five-year period: its origin ...

  • Aloha America: Hula Circuits through the U.S. Empire by Adria L Imada
           (review)
    • Abstract: Aloha America: Hula Circuits through the U.S. Empire is an interdisciplinary work that explores how hula performances aided in the securing of Hawai‘i as part of the US empire. Adria Imada examines the various ways that female hula dancers embodied the relationship of hospitality between Hawaiians and the United States from the time of Hawai‘i’s illegal overthrow in 1893 to its becoming the fiftieth state in 1959. Tracing an arc between the Hawaiian monarchy’s deliberate resurgence of hula practices in the face of American cultural and political imperialism, the first hula circuits that came to the US continent and Europe in the late nineteenth century, and contemporary hula circuits, she specifically shows that ...

  • The Making of Asmat Art: Indigenous Art in a World Perspective by Nick
           Stanley (review)
    • Abstract: In his latest book, Nick Stanley explores interactions between artists working in south Papua and international audiences. Rather than a study of the art itself, this book explores the notion of Asmat visual culture in European imaginations. The title, The Making of Asmat Art, does not refer to the technical process by which Asmat artists carve their famous sculptures but instead suggests how the international art market creates what we know as “Asmat art.” With this perspective, Stanley situates Asmat visual culture within a larger, international context while at the same time rooting these practices and interactions in a longer history.It is no surprise that Stanley is interested in the notion of Asmat art given ...
