What is a Pacific Man?

Pasefika Proud is proud to present this ‘What Is a Pacific Man?’ video, featuring Pacific men. Church ministers, community leaders and violence prevention advocates share their personal stories of family violence and ask a fundamental question – ‘what does it mean to be a Pacific man?’

They discuss the core values, the responsibilities, the legacy and basic principles they associate with being a Pacific man - violence is not one of them.

These personal stories emphasise the role of Pacific men as fathers and proffers a challenge that for some it's time to man-up, to focus on a positive future.

“I want to be the answer for my children, I want to be my kids' superhero, they shouldn’t have to look for answers elsewhere. It’s all in me”.
