Joaquinn's Ancestral Poem

I am proud of my Niuean culture.
A son of a Niuean Queen and Warrior.

The colour yellow,

The smell of fresh flowers growing on beach pathways,
Creative and traditional cultural dances,
Hats and baskets made out of flax and flowers represent my culture.

I come from a long line of Niuean ancestors who I am proud of and forever thankful for them.
Their past choices, struggles and success have helped shape my identity.
The will be forever cherished in my heart.
Thinking about my ancestors gives me courage, confidence and strength. to do the best I can with my life.
