36th PIBBA Annual International Conference a Success!

The 36th Annual Pacific Islands Bilingual Bicultural Association (PIBBA) Conference was a success! The conference theme, Our Pacific Voices, was highlighted in each of the conference days from June 26-29, 2017. It was natural to hear everyone singing the PIBBA song, which includes all the languages of the region, such as the following chorus: “Iokwe, Raan Annim, Kaselehlia, Alii, Aloha, Olomwaay, Hafa Dei, Tuwoh, Mogethin, Talofa.”

Among the entities that attended the conference are CNMI, Republic of Palau, Pohnpei, Kosrae, and Guam. The mission of PIBBA is to bring these entities together to promote cultural and language activities by disseminating information, involving communities, and encouraging quality education programs through the western Pacific.


Deep gratitude goes out to all PIBBA Conference steering committee members, and all the entities that joined us to make the 37th Anuual PIBBA Conference a memorable event that will always be remembered! Kalahngan! Si Yu’os Ma’ase’! Mesulang! Kuloh!  Kinissow! Kommol! Kammagar!
