Join Polynesian Student Alliance and Lehigh Tea Club in Spillin' the Tea: Debunking Misconceptions in Polynesia. We hope to foster cultural awareness and debunk common misconceptions surrounding Polynesian cultures during this event. We aim to promote understanding and appreciation of Polynesia's rich heritages.
We will incorporate a rich cultural experience of Kava Tea, which is used in Vanuatu, Tonga, Samoa, Hawaii, and more! Throughout the Pacific Islands, kava has been part of ceremonies since ancient times. The installation of a new village chief, agreements between communities, or the welcoming of an important visitor always includes a kava ceremony. In Tonga, the installment of the king or a noble title is not complete until they conduct a kava ceremony. In addition to ceremonial purposes, kava is highly valued by islanders for its ability to calm and relax individuals struggling with stress, fretfulness, troublesome thoughts, or an inability to sleep and rest. We hope you can join us in Spillin' the Tea: Debunking Misconceptions in Polynesia.

Hosted by: Lehigh Tea Club, Office of Multicultural Affairs, Polynesian Student Alliance
