I am... Identity
One of the major findings in our research with Canterbury’s Pacific communities is that Pacific women are the heartbeat of the family.
In post-quake Canterbury Pacific women have played a significant role in their communities, creating strong networks and support structures and working to keep Pacific traditions alive with strong family and church networks.
Our research has also highlighted that some young Pacific people born in New Zealand can struggle with their sense of identity.
All Right? has developed the I am... Identity project to celebrate identify and its importance to Pacific youth and their wellbeing.
