The translation of Pasefika is not only Pacific but that which encompasses all of the Pacific Ocean, its area and the cultures within it.
This includes Polynesia at its heart and surrounded by many others such as Melanesia and Micronesia, Asia, and also the Americas.
Pasefika (english formal: pə-ˈsā-ˈfē-kə english informal: pa-say-fEE-ka) is spelled and pronounced differently from the words Pacifica (english formal: pə-ˈsi-fi-kə english informal: pa-'si-fi-ka) and Pasifika (english formal: pə-ˈsē-ˈfē-kə english informal: pa-'see-fEE-ka;). Pasifika, used by Sāmoans and others in New Zealand is a variation of the Sāmoan word Pasefika.
Our portfolio includes artwork, design and videos with themes including Sāmoan art, Polynesian art and contemporary designs.
