The Pacific Community of Alaska (PCA) brings this FREE special sneak peek for the community to attend, but REGISTRATION IS RECOMMENDED so we can ensure everyone can be accommodated.

“Shaka, A Story of Aloha” is a 74-minute feature-length documentary film that's a global journey, from a temple in Japan to surf breaks in Brazil and the white sandy shores of Hawai'i, to discover the origin, meanings and why the Shaka gesture is the secret to paradise.

The shaka hand gesture is known around the world, used as a greeting, an acknowledgment, and an expression of encouragement, warmth, support, and courage. Its backstory brings together many communities, and its fundamental message is universal. Its origins in Hawai’i create a global web of aloha—and its ties to Native Hawaiian culture bring especially strong alignments with other indigenous communities around the world. Hawai’i and Alaska are more alike than they might first appear, and these common values should be celebrated.
