Te Moana Nui a Kiwa, the great ocean continent, is traditionally a connector and an ancestor. Imperialism in the Moana, however, created false divides between islands and separated peoples. Lana Lopesi, in conversation with Emma Ng, will discuss how the adaptability of Moana peoples is now turning the ocean back into the unifying continent that it once was.
