Pacific Aotearoa

Our story as Pacific peoples in Aotearoa is ever-evolving. The waves of migration laid a foundation for our Pacific story and now more than 60 per cent of our Pacific population are born in New Zealand.
​We have been and will continue to engage with Pacific communities that reflect where we have come from, what we are doing now and where we want to be in the future.
​We know that a prosperous journey can only be realised with the blessing and collective support of our community, and we encourage you to get behind our shared vision for Pacific Aotearoa.

Pacific Aotearoa is about empowering Pacific communities to be at the decision-making table, driving and leading innovative solutions.

The Pacific Aoteroa Lalanga Fou  report lays a good strong foundation that we can build upon for generations to come. It is the start of a conversation to better understand Pacific people’s contribution to NZ’s economy, and how we define success, prosperity and well-being.

It will give confidence to our young people that Pacific people do punch well above their weight despite the burdens of inequalities that exist. It will also help eliminate the negative stereotypical attitudes towards Pacific peoples from other quarters.
