Drua : the wave of fire( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

VAKA, DRUA, AND MOANA were created and produced as a trilogy of films that focus on the art of canoe voyaging in the Pacific. VAKA is about the traditional art of canoe building on Fiji, DRUA is about collaboration in double-hulled canoe building among Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, and Kiribati and the demise of this art form when steam ships arrived in the Pacific, while MOANA is about the symbol of the double-hulled canoe as a hope for rising sea levels and the human effects of climate change on the Pacific Islands. All three originated from the Oceania Center for Arts, Culture, and Pacific Studies (OCACPS) based at the University of the South Pacific and are informed by scholarly research. They were conceived by Vilsoni Hereniko who was the Director of the OCACPS from late 2008-2010 in collaboration with Peter Espiritu, Igelese Ete, and Allan Alo, all well-known artists working in Oceania. All three productions are extraordinary in that they used huge casts and cost a lot of money to stage and film. These films are particularly important because they demonstrate the beauty and power of the performative arts of Oceania (traditional as well as modern and contemporary) at their best in terms of communicating and disseminating important historical and cultural knowledge about the voyaging traditions of the Pacific. These films are multi-disciplinary as well as inter-disciplinary in their approach to research and dissemination of cultural and historical information employing art forms that are rooted in traditional Pacific cultures: music, dance, oral storytelling, chanting, and indigenous aesthetics

The Pacific Islands food composition tables( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditional Pacific Island diets were diverse and nutritionally appropriate. In recent decades Pacific Islanders have experienced many changes in lifestyle and diet. Most of the dietary changes have not been for the better, and have contributed to the burden of malnutrition throughout the Pacific. The vast natural biodiversity of food plants and animals represent an asset that is sadly neglected. Food composition activities provide a focus on the nutrient content of individual cultivars, wild and cultivated, that will add to the impetus to preserve its rich diversity for the food security of the region. The food composition data presented in this document are fundamental to food trade, agriculture policy development, nutrition education, and the setting/achieving of nutrition goals and guidelines

Climate and agriculture in the Pacific Islands : future perspectives( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A majority of Pacific Islanders rely on subsistence farming and fishing for survival. These sectors are also major foreign currency earners in a number of countries. In cultural terms, the very existence of Pacific peoples is inseparable from the land. Although the risks to the physical survival of many Pacific Islands as a result of sea-level rise have been widely publicised, it is agriculture and marine and terrestial ecosystems that are likely to be affected greatest in the next century. Adverse effects on these systems will probadly render many areas uninhabitable long before they are totally inundated, if they ever are. This small volume aims to increase grass-roots awareness, to help Pacific populations cope with changes and make the necessary sacrifices to counter negative impacts of climate change." --Back cover

South Pacific Islands communication : regional perspectives, local issues by Evangelia Papoutsaki( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together significant scholarly contributions on communication issues by researchers working across the region. It aims to create better understanding of what affects the communication and information flow in smaller nations and how these impact on national development, governance and the creation of more cohesive societies. The value of such a book lies in the comparison it enables between different regions and countries at different levels of development. The work of the contributing authors provides glimpses of the prevalent issues and perspectives without necessarily providing a definitive picture of this diverse region. The editors hope this book will draw out significant relational possibilities by bringing together scholarly writing on communication issues and highlighting the perspectives of Pacific scholars and media practitioners, thus contributing to the knowledge base in Pacific Media Studies." --Publisher
