When you click on the event, their Website should appear allowing you to copy and paste into your browser to retrieve more information.
The three newly added festivals include:
Heiva San Diego, August 9-11. This event will bring together the Pacific Triangle of Rapa Nui (Easter Island), New Zealand, and Hawaii, as well as groups from Mexico, Canada, and Japan.
Teuila Festival, September 1-7, Apia Samoa. This is one of Samoa’s most celebrated annual events with many activities and shows being held particularly in Apia, Samoa’s capital city.

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.
