Many of Hawaii’s most recent newcomers come from Micronesia, a sub-region of Oceania, comprising thousands of small islands in the western Pacific Ocean.
Many have fled their island nations due to environmental and economic pressures. Their new reality in the Aloha State and the path to assimilation yields a collection of real-life stories that uncover the disconnections, explores the underlying causes, and opens an ongoing dialog that seeks sustained healing for this fractured community.
Calling upon the shared histories of refugees in Hawai’i, Masters of the Currents serves as a creative bridge between new and old immigrant communities. Created by Leilani Chan & Ova Saopeng.
