Our story as Pacific peoples in Aotearoa is ever-evolving. The waves of migration laid a foundation for our Pacific story and now more than 60 per cent of our Pacific population are born in New Zealand.
We have been and will continue to engage with Pacific communities that reflect where we have come from, what we are doing now and where we want to be in the future.
We know that a prosperous journey can only be realised with the blessing and collective support of our community, and we encourage you to get behind our shared vision for Pacific Aotearoa.
Pacific Values are our anchor, with each generation weaving the foundation for the next to stand on.
Pacific communities are leading innovations within Aotearoa, the Pacific region and the world.
We are confident in our endeavours, we are thriving, resilient and prosperous Pacific Aotearoa.
