Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum

Many Islands. Many Stories. One Museum.


Welcome to Our Community House

Hello, Alii, Aloha, Bula Vi Naka, Fakaalofa Lahi Atu, Fakatalofa Atu, Gude, Hafa Adai, Halo Oloketa, Iokwe, 'Iorana, Kaoha, ​Kaselehlia, Kia Ora, Kia Orana, Lorana, Lwen Wo, Malo E Lelei, Mauri, Mogethin, Ran Allim, Talofa, Taloha Ni, Tyavwar O!​

Over many centuries, and through wars, political upheavals, immigration, religious incursions, and environmental challenges, one central galvanizing value has been a constant – the community. 

Throughout all Oceania, there has always been a central meeting place. Known by many different names in different cultures, it is a community house – to foster intercultural exchanges with appreciation and respect.

The Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum acknowledges the Tongva people as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (Los Angeles basin, South Channel Islands) and pay our respects. Thank you for receiving us.
