Waka Activity #2: Oceanic Greeting

In this activity, we will delve deeper into the islands nations of Oceania.  Each waka will present an Oceanic greeting along with a profile of that particular island nation.  These profiles will not be a complete survey of each nation’s history; rather, they will provide a brief overview and help direct further inquiry.  The island profile activity is also an exercise in researching and prioritizing information: there is a wealth of information for any given nation, but a finite amount of time to present...how will you determine what makes the cut?  Make your decision collectively as a waka with a focus on one of the overarching themes from class.
