Zohl de Ishtar
Indigenous women from across the Pacific - Hawai'i, the Marshall Islands, the Northern Marianas, Guam, Belau, Fiji, Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand and Te Ao Maohi/Tahiti Polynesia - have a voice in this book. For most of the world, the tiny island nations of the Pacific are barely known, but the events that have taken place in those nations during the twentieth century have global consequences. Without understanding that history, the world will be doomed to repeat those mistakes.

'For Tahitian people … the radiation is making us ill and creating cancers in our bodies. The French … derive huge profits from our suffering and exploitation.'Myron Mataoa, Tahiti
