Teu le Vā: The Pacific Dimension at Auckland Museum

Auckland Museum is proud to have a strong Pacific dimension, and is working to build on this to ensure our Pacific collections and communities are embraced and celebrated.

Auckland Museum’s Pacific Advisory Group assists the Museum in developing a stronger Pacific dimension. The aim is to better reflect Auckland’s rich, contemporary Pacific culture and improve the under-representation of visitation by Pacific people and increase their engagement with Museum programmes.

Alongside establishing the Pacific Advisory Group the Museum has published a document titled Teu le Vā, which outlines what is meant by ‘creating a strong Pacific dimension’.

Museum staff have also produced a short film articulating what Teu le Vā means to them.
