Description:For nearly 50,000 years, dances and songs have been an expression of Pacific Islanders’ origins, their journeys, their struggles--their very existence. Today, Islanders are struggling to maintain their identity and traditions, and dance is central to these efforts. The film is about their “dance stories,” focusing on the Maori, Palau, Samoa, New Caledonia, and the Chamorros of Guam. Narrated by Keisha Castle-Hughes.
