A Cultural Arts and Equity Hip-Hop Series event
Robin Fifita is a Tongan/Pacific Islander painter/muralist, poet, educator and doula. She embraces and celebrates her unique cultural backgrounds, Tongan, Irish and German heritages, and her work is guided by her ancestry, intersecting identities and commitment to care and advocacy.
Fifita has led several community-based murals throughout Hawai’i and has contributed to murals featured at the Bishop Museum and the Hawai’i Convention Center. She co-curated “Pacific Voices,” a Honolulu-based art exhibit celebrating contemporary Pacific Islander artists.
As an educator, Fifita’s approach to learning and teaching is rooted in indigenous Pacific epistemologies, critical pedagogies and liberatory praxis. She aims to explore various points of convergence, contrast and transformation through painting, poetry and facilitation, and believes creative expression invokes possibilities for healing and restorative imaginings.
