Oceania in Salem: Art and Culture of the Pacific Islands
April 21, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm$10 - $15
Disney’s Moana introduces viewers to many aspects of ancient life in the Pacific Islands, from the demigod Maui and the many uses of coconuts to tapa (bark-cloth) and outrigger canoes. While living in Hawaii in the 1800s, the Phillips family developed a passion for Oceanic culture. During this program, explore items from their collection, listen to legends of Maui, and create a tapa stamp design.
