"As a Polynesian woman, Moana was a game changer for me. Seeing a Disney princess inspired by my culture made me so proud! I loved the little details that accurately represented my heritage like the tattoos, clothing, mythology, and music. Unfortunately, before Moana, many people I spoke to had never heard of the Pacific Islands (except Hawai'i). After the movie came out, I had a reference that everyone knew and understood. Being seen is so important!"
