The North American Taiwanese Women’s Association – 2nd generation (NATWAII) Socal group will be visiting the Out of Taiwan: Shared Connections in the Pacific exhibit at the Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum. Photographs by Danee Hazama.
The Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum (PIEAM) presents “Out of Taiwan: Shared Connections in the Pacific” exhibit October 26, 2013 to April 20, 2014 in Long Beach, California. Through the artistic lens of photographer Danee Hazama of Tahiti, French Polynesia, the shared cultural heritage between the people of the Pacific Islands and the indigenous people of Taiwan becomes apparent. Hazama will make a special appearance at the exhibit opening.
The origins of Pacific Islanders have been the subject of interest and controversy for many decades. Significant Western research in archaeology, historical linguistics and molecular genetics shows common patterns with the indigenous Taiwan people and the peoples of the Pacific Islands.
