Tiki Oasis Symposium, Sunday, 8/1/21

Hello Brown Metropolis readers! If you are at Tiki Oasis in San Diego, CA this weekend, I will be giving a free symposium on “Hawaiian and Maori Cultures in Film” on Sunday, August 1st. The event is free to Tiki Oasis attendees and it takes place at the Town & Country Resort, in Ballroom B, from 12-1 pm.

This event is sponsored by Copalli Rum, but I am not being paid to give this symposium. I designed this symposium after spending some time as a volunteer member of the Tiki Oasis Diversity & Inclusion Council. I will be touching upon the four films pictured below!

Hopefully, this event will be recorded so that I can share it on the Tiki Oasis TV youtube page. I will also be sharing my thoughts in each film in blog posts throughout August 2021.
