2021 One Wave Gathering

Pacific People’s Partnership (PPP) is excited and proud to announce our 14th annual One Wave Gathering! One Wave is a vibrant, community celebration of South Pacific and Indigenous cultures, art, and knowledge hosted on the traditional territory of the Songhees, Esquimalt, and W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations. This year, a variety of events will be taking place throughout the month of September.

Guided by the themes of healing and resurgence, artists, knowledge keepers, speakers, and Elders will share their stories through song, dance, film, traditional food, and art. Our themes emerged from the many challenges of life during the pandemic, which we recognize as particularly pronounced in Indigenous and racialized communities. We desire One Wave Gathering to be a time to reflect, heal, and begin to build a more equitable future for us all.

This year, events... include the dedication of the Pacific Peace Post, an installation of short films created by Indigenous and South Pacific youth (OUR STORIES, OUR LAND), a day of cultural presentations and interactive activities (Sept 18), a dialogue and expression of peace presented in partnership with CIRCLE at UVic, and more!

All events are free. In-person events will be regulated as per BC Health Guidelines.

One Wave Gathering is organized by Pacific Peoples’ Partnership, a local NGO and registered charity that advocates for sovereignty and climate resilience in Indigenous and South Pacific communities.
