Image of the Week: 24th November - 30th November 2014

24 November 2014

How great is the headdress this absolutely beautiful Samoan girl is wearing? We chose this to be this week's image to highlight the official launch of the UC Pasifika Strategy this Thursday evening (27th of November). Appropriately, the image comes from the John Macmillan Brown Collection who's interest in the Pacific led to the development of the Macmillan Brown Centre for Pacific Studies. Take a look at K&#257 Kohika for lots more images of the Pacific's past.
