Pacific Island Studies Initiative First Friday Festivities: "Island Soldier" film screening + panel discussion

Friday, April 6, 2018, 6 - 8:30pm
Carolyn Tanner Irish Humanities Building (CTIHB)

"Island Soldier" is part of a series of events of the Pacific Islander Studies Initiative of the University of Utah. Per-capita, Utah has the largest number of Pacific Islanders in the continental United States. The community continues to grow at a rapid rate, with U.S. Census figures showing the population increasing by more than sixty percent between 2000 and 2010 alone. Utah also has the continental U.S.’s most historically significant Pacific Island community. Missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint have been active in the Pacific Islands since 1844, and Pacific Islanders have lived in Utah continuously since the late 1870s. This Utah community, initially comprised primarily of Native Hawaiians, now includes Tongans, Samoans, Fijians, Tahitians, Maori, Cook Islanders, Guamanian/Chamorro peoples, and people of virtually every other Polynesian, Micronesian, and Melanesian heritage. Part of a diaspora, members of the community travel frequently between the American West and the Pacific and are tightly linked to other Pacific Islanders through shared traditions, religions, family practices, and business connections. "Island Soldier" | Synopsis "ISLAND SOLDIER" follows members of the Nena family from one of the most remote islands in the world to the training grounds of Texas and the battlefields in Afghanistan. The death of Sapuro “Sapp” Nena in Afghanistan makes waves through his tiny home island of Kosrae - where nearly everyone is connected to the U.S. Military directly or through family members. In an attempt to heal from his own deep wounds, Sapuro’s best friend in the Army, Mario Robles, heads to Kosrae with his family to meet Sapp’s parents for the first time and pay his respects on Veteran’s Day. It is an emotional gathering of two families, from opposite sides of the world, brought together by loss, love and honor.
