For reading we were given an activity, were we had to watch either 2 or 3 videos & write a little summary about the video then answer questions relating to the videos that e had watching. one of the videos that I chose were called 'What Pacific Islanders Want You To Know' here's my thoughts on the video!
^ Link to video
This video is produced by Buzzfeed, a group of pacific islanders came together & shared more about what they want you to know about their culture. Many assume that if you are polynesian you origins are within Hawaii, they believe that if you are a pacific islander you wear hula skirts & know how to hula dance. Most non-polynesians figure that if you are from the pacific your fit to play sports & your good when playing in sports activities.
- I learnt more about what non-polynesians think about pacific islanders.
- I learnt more about what people’s initial reaction when hearing the word ‘polynesian’ or ‘pacific islander’.
- I chose this video because I wanted to see the point of view from people outside of the polynesian culture & what they have to say about pacific islanders.
Hopefully you learnt more from this post, come back tomorrow for another blog post!
