The Moana movie showed partially some of the Pacific cultures and very interesting to watch. The songs sounds magical and very appropriate for the actions of the movie. However, the part of Maui the Semi God is like a joke, modernised Semi God and in some cultures of the Pacific they do not joke about the heritage of a culture because it shows disrespect. How does this fit in with a Western perceptive of what Pacific Island cultures beliefs are all about?

In talking about any indigenous culture, mainstream Western white culture talks about it in the past tense. People don't realize that people they've oppressed for generations are still fighting for their rights, beliefs, and practices. It's tragic how white culture talks about indigenous people in the past tense.
