When I say ‘Pacific’ it means to me a FOCUS ON PEOPLE. People who are human and not puppets. They have tears, blood and sweat… and when they are ‘itchy’ they want to be scratched… They are people born to be free; they want to make their own decisions and list their top priorities.

– Sione ‘Amanaki Havea, the late Tongan church leader and theologian (‘coconut theology’)
