Our success in the work of empowering youth voices in the Pacific has relied on a constant desire for improvement. This quest has led us to indigenize poetry slam, so our youth can explore their identities, their stories and their roles as voices in the Pacific. From the land we share our stories on to the food we put into our bodies, we hope our youth elevate their understanding of their place within the Pacific.
