New Pacific Islander Studies Department at CCSF!

A big HO’OMAIKA’I ANA to one of my oldest and dearest friends, Dr. David Ga’oupu Palaita (Vika!) and the Pacific Islander student community at City College San Francisco, for successfully petitioning their school administration to create a Pacific Islander Studies department – the only one of its kind on the continent.

This new department will provide academic services that have been long-awaited and much needed by the Pacific Islander community here in the Bay area. Yay! Hopefully other universities and colleges will follow suit, especially those that enjoy the benefit of having Polynesian football players on their teams, but have not yet reciprocated by providing these same students with the opportunity to take PI studies coursework (hint hint, or shall I say….woof, woof?) 

Anyways, IMUA!!!
