I’m really tired of hearing people complain that they’re disappointed about “Moana” not having a traditional love story like other Disney movies. Maybe not traditional, but there was a huge love story. She was in love with her island, the sea, and her people. As a Pacific Islander, we relate to this movie- not only because it is about our Polynesian heritage; but because we all have a strong love for both our land and sea. Our hearts will always yearn for them, no matter where we are in the world. Pacific Islanders are known for being voyagers, our ancestors were probably the best navigators. Thanks to the legacies of Mau Piailug and Nainoa Thompson, our keiki are able to learn how to navigate by our heavens, sea, and animals. Thanks to our ancestors, that have fought to continue our Hula and ʻŌlelo through Hālau and Ke Kula. I am so beyond proud and grateful of my Polynesian heritage, we are all fighting against extinction and the fire is still burning within. “We tell the stories of our elders in a never-ending chain.”
