Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander Stories

While the month of May has officially been recognized as Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, oftentimes the cultural nuance of Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities is lost under a large, diasporic umbrella. As WORLD celebrates AANHPI Heritage Month along with our partners and community members, it's important to highlight the stories of ritual, pride and trailblazing diversity that come from Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders. Watch films from Pacific Heartbeat, our series in partnership with Pacific Islanders in Communications, and more that showcase the vibrant traditions that come out of these communities.
