Event details

Stroll along Ponsonby Road with Samoan Pasifika street historians the Pua Brothers.

Close family ties, employment, and population pressure led many Pacific people to migrate to Auckland.

Hear about Pacific urban migration, dawn raids on over-stayers, Polynesian Panthers, and Sione’s Wedding (the movie).

This lively and fun guided walk will honour the Pacific urban history of Ponsonby with Pacific music and siva dancing. Yes, you will be dancing in the street!
