Celebrate the A100, the most impactful Asian Pacific Leaders.

Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum (PIEAM)

Our mission is to amplify the collective wisdom of the Pacific Islands people of Oceania (Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia) through rotating installations and lived experiences. Our purpose is to connect the community to resources and foster intercultural exchanges with appreciation and respect.

We recognize the unique kinship that exist between ancestor pieces, people and their histories and the obligation that comes with this recognition.

We envision and work towards a world where Pasifika ways of being are thriving and accessible to all of our people beyond the physical space of the museum. 

PIEAM is fundamentally led by Indigenous principals, particularly the CHamoru principle of inafa’maolek (making good, restoring harmony) which entails a reciprocal culture of respect, collaboration, and solidarity.
