Lokahi II: All Things Are Connected features both the art and artifact of the Pacific Islands, including Tonga, Samoa, Tahiti, Fifi, New Zealand, Hawaii, Easter Island, Guam, Palau, Micronesia, and the Marshall Islands. Polynesia – "many islands" – takes its shape from volcanic peaks and coral atolls, clear as a constellation among stars: a triangle defined by Hawaii above the Equator, New Zealand toward the southern ice, and Easter Island far to the east, pointing like a spear tip toward dawn. Thousands of people from these islands, and many others, call Utah their home.
Through the centuries, a tall, brown-skinned people made this ocean realm their own. By accident or by design – authorities differ – the men of the long canoes found sun-washed islands by the hundred. The Polynesians' soft-flowing languages share words from a common stock to tell the myths of creation, the descent of chiefs from gods, the voyages of ancestral heroes. The Utah Cultural Celebration Center and Polynesian Association of Utah welcome you to emjoy this collection of Polyneisan art and artifact. Lokahi… all things are connected .
