In honor of our commitment to expanding educational opportunities to the Pacific Islander communities in the U.S. and in remembrance of the legacies of our pathways into education, we cordially invite you to our 6th Annual “OUR SEA OF ISLANDS”. This year’s 6th annual theme, “Water Is Life,” celebrates the establishment and growth of Critical Pacific Islands & Oceania Studies programs at the City College of San Francisco, the College of San Mateo, De Anza-Foothill College, and San Francisco State University.

***Students enrolled in Critical Pacific Islands & Oceania Studies courses at CCSF, CSM, De Aanza-Foothill, and SF State will weave together critical issues of importance to Pacific Islander communities through song, dance, poetry, drama, and research.****

“Our Sea of Islands” is proudly hosted by the CCSF VASA Program and the CCSF Critical Pacific Islands & Oceania Studies Program and will be held at City College of San Francisco at 50 Phelan Avenue, Student Union, San Francisco, CA 94112 on December 13 from 5:00-9:00pm. Disability accommodations provided upon request. Parking is available. Dinner & Refreshments will also be provided.

***In honor of our theme, "Water Is Life," this year’s event is dedicated to several social struggles and movements that interact with our Pacific Islander communities. This dedication is in recognition of their existence and WE support their courage, determination, and efforts to creating better lives for our communities.***


For more information, contact: Dr. David Ga'oupu Palaita, Ph.D. (vika) @ 206-250-7468 | dpalaita@ccsf.edu

Established in 2012, the students of Critical Pacific Islands & Oceania Studies @ CCSF created the event to share their work with the greater Pacific Islander community of parents, friends, family, elders, and allies.

Inspired by the late Dr. ‘Epeli Hau’ofa’s powerful essay entitled, “Our Sea of Islands,” students used the semester courses to engage in critical thinking and “Talanoa” (dialogue/talk-story) over social and cultural issues affecting Pacific Islander communities in the U.S. and beyond.
