"If I see further, it is because I stand on the shoulders of giants."  

P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A. Incorporated is a national non-government organisation (NGO) for Pacific women living in Aotearoa New Zealand. It was established as a result of a Pacific Women's Conference held in Auckland in 1976 and became an incorporated society in 1977. All women are eligible to become members of P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A. irrespective of background, faith and ethnicity – as long as they agree to support and abide by the aims and objectives of the organisation. Find out more on the New Zealand History website.
