Pasifika sisterhood celebrates island culture
The Pasifika Women's Alliance is a culturally diverse network consisting of women who have migrated to Australia from 22 Pacific island countries and territories including American Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, Samoa, PNG, Tonga, Vanuatu - just to name a few. The Alliance is currently run by Pacific Islander women who have volunteered their time to create the women's group. Many are employed in services in the wider community and are also involved in their individual Pacific Islander cultural communities.
