Somehow, somewhere saltwater has brought us all to this exact place and point in time.
From conquering to being conquered - exploring to being found - voyaging and navigating...
The mixing of cultures and races, food and traditions and the universal love of the sea.
Saltwater binds us all together as members of the same Club...
Throughout the South Seas, SALTWATER (Solwata) has always been the source of bringing people and cultures together through voyages of discovery, opportunities, new frontiers, health and harmony. It has also bought disharmony, displacement and disagreement.
From the days of ancient seafarers, traders and conquerors, the explorers and resource raiders, the outrigger canoe (Va’a. Vaka, Waka), tall ship and pearling lugger has been the connection between mastery of the sea, vessel, wind and tide and the ultimate success (or failure) of nations and cultures.
For Indigenous peoples of the South Pacific including Australian Aboriginals, Torres Strait Islanders and Australian South Sea Islanders, and the South Sea Polynesian, Melanesian and Micronesian peoples, it is saltwater that also provided life’s wants and needs including health, wealth, family, food, transport, identity and community.
Before time, communities worked together, built vessels that took them to destinations unknown, with a future that only revealed itself as each new destination is reached.
