Tagata Pasifika - 20th Anniversary Special

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2007

Actor Robbie Magasiva and discus champ Beatrice Faumuina oversee this hour-long Tagata Pasifika 20th birthday celebration. Presenters past and present survey changes in the Aotearoa PI community over the show’s run: from education, arts and culture (Ardijah, OMC, Michel Tuffery’s corned beef bulls and the Naked Samoans), to political pioneers (Mark Gosche, Winnie Laban), and sports heroes (All Black icons Jones, Lomu and Umaga). Among those talking about the show’s importance to NZ Pasifika culture are Helen Clark, Annie Crummer and many others.

When Tagata Pasifika began it was one of the only places where you’d find Pasifika people on screen. Of course now we’re just everywhere ...
– Original presenter Foufou Susana Hukui
