Pasifika Media Association (PasiMA)
Pasifika is the oceanic blue continent that stretches from Hawai’i to Aotearoa, and Rapa Nui to Papua New Guinea, home to the richest diversity of air, land and sea life that this planet shelters. Among its 30,000 islands live its human stewards in a spectrum of cultures, within one great civilization of ancient seafaring peoples. Pasifika’s ocean pathways, laid down by the stars, are still traveled in voyaging canoes – but in the 21st Century, Pasifik islanders are actively building new networks to connect and share the stories of these islands.
The logo with crossed canoe paddles represents our voyaging culture of past and present, and the taro leaf image symbolizes the sustenance of Pasifika peoples. Together they represent PasiMA’s commitment to supporting and sustaining the information and media networks of the people of Pasifika and defending free speech and media rights in the region.
