In Kupe's Wake Workshop & Report

In January 2022, NOAA Ocean Exploration, Ocean Exploration Trust, and Schmidt Ocean Institute brought together Pacific Island community leaders, indigenous practitioners, and educators for Pacific Island communities throughout Polynesia to discuss best practices to engage with these communities. All three ocean exploration organizations gathered advice for how best to serve the interests of indigenous communities, build collaborative partnerships, and share ocean science and education materials. Learn more about the workshop and lessons learned in the Virtual Workshop Report.
