Calling All Pacific Islander Americans!!

Island Culture Archival Support is proud to present its new digital archives:

Riding the Trades

This project records and illustrates the experiences of why Pacific Islander Americans came to the United States. Our goal is to create a free online catalog of material related to the history of the Pacific Islander American migration.

Pacific Islander Americans here is your opportunity to tell your story, and publish your experience of migration. We want to explore and document topics such as:

  • What was it like in your country of origin and why did you choose to move to the United States?
  • What was your journey like?
  • What has been your experience on settling in the United States?

Ensure that your history is passed to the next generation!

About islandculturearchivalsupport

Island Culture Archival Support (ICAS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of records pertaining to the cultural identity of island peoples in Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia whose national and public archives, libraries, cultural centers, and business organizations are underprivileged, underfunded, and understaffed. The specific purpose for which this nonprofit corporation was formed is to support the needs of these South Pacific cultural heritage institutions by helping to preserve and make accessible records created for business, accountability or cultural purposes. The organization will endeavor to add value by providing resources or volunteers to advise, train, and work among island residents to support their efforts in building their future and preserving their collective memory through the use of modern archival techniques.
