Ka Mate, Ka Mate

Lately, life has been so busy and I've been doing a lot with school! Most notable if you follow my Insta: I threw my school's first-annual Asian/Pacific-Islander Cultural Night (APIC Night)! It was a night that celebrated all of the different Asian and Pacific-Islander (API) cultures through a number of different types performances, but primarily dances. We featured a few different performances (I was in two of them) and the lineup was:

  • Hula
  • Filipino/Japanese Martial Arts Demonstration
  • Singing of an Islander song on the ukelele
  • Indian, Bollywood-style dancing
  • Tinikling (a traditional Filipino dance)
  • Tahitian (faster version of hula, from Tahiti)
  • The Haka (a Samoan war chant)
It was the highlight of me leading the club! It was really stressful but it all came together and was worth it in the end. I'm excited for what my friend, Mele (she's taking over next year), will do with the event next year!

This girl will be my successsor. I'm so excited for you, Mele!
How much do you know about Asian/Pacific-Islander culture? 


  1. Looks like it was a lot of fun! I don't know that much about all the different cultures, so all your pictures were great!

  2. Oh wow! This looks amazing. Kudos on organizing such an awesome event :)
