Pacific Festivals and Diasporic Flow
In concluding this book, an overview of the main arguments, themes, and conclusions is offered, alongside some additional ethnography and reflection on the Pacific festival space. In four decades of development, Pacific festivals have grown to become an important and highly visible part of Aotearoa New Zealand’s festival landscape. They are spaces where Pacific communities come together, to connect with and celebrate themselves and each other, their historical and cultural similarities, and to show both unity but also diversity within their particular cultural practices. They are spaces where the collision of cultures occurs, of old and new, traditional and contemporary, Pacific and Western; a space where distinctive new diasporic culture flourishes and identities evolve and emerge. In sum, the Pacific festival space is a dynamic and evolving space, and it reflects the fluid and evolving nature of the Pacific diaspora and communities in New Zealand.
