Salt water tears (Dyptich)
‘We sweat and cry salt water, so we know that the ocean is really in our blood’
Dr Teresia Teaiwa
As Indigenous peoples and people of the Pacific, our relationships to the whenua, moana, whanau and the wider region are essential to our existences and identities. As Indigenous peoples, we are part of the communities who have committed the least towards climate change, though are among the communities who are forced to be at the forefront of experiencing the growing impacts and issues.
