Imagine, within the Greater Pacific there are more than 15 million peoples with ancient cultures, more than 1,000 languages, 1,000’s of unique biodiversity supported by tropical and sub-tropical rain forests, reefs, the origins of world-famous spices, early rock art, the first aqua farming, early grain harvesting, the list goes on. More than 25,000 islands, in the largest and deepest ocean on the planet. In this region the First Nations peoples have lived and managed their homes sustainably for millennia.
All of this underpins vivid and engaging stories. We want more of these stories, from all over the Pacific, from all First Nations peoples everywhere, encouraged with Awards, and celebrated together at Festivals.
This year, 2023, Awards recipients will be born in the Greater Pacific Region, of First Nations descent, and presently reside there.
