Description

In October 1992 the "6th Festival of Pacific Arts" took place on Rarotonga. 23 delegations from all over Oceania and Australia presented dance performances, craft demonstrations etc. The festival's highlight was a pageant of traditional boats. The film describes selected parts of the festival activities and discusses, mainly through statements of festival participants, the relevance of such events and of the revival of traditional boat-building in Oceania for the strengthening of a Pan-Pacific cultural identity. from https://vimeo.com/64575071
